We did it!!

We became a family of 5 today!!! It was a wonderful day for all of us!

Yesterday I was given the go ahead to head to the hospital today!We got checked into the hospital this morning after a wonderful nights sleep (thank you Ambion!) I was able to have home and kids all taken care of and that was a huge relief. Thank you Homer's for taking the girls!!

Got rolling with Pitocin at 1p.m and ready to push at 2:25 p.m. Once the nurses and doctor were all ready I was allowed to push! One push for the head!One more for the rest of her and it was all over!

It was all so amazing! I went 100% drug free minus the Pitocin!!! I was in love with how everything turned out. I used Hypnobirthing and it was incredible! Mike was an amazing support!Saying all the right things and being the coach I needed him to be! I have never loved him more! Mike's sister was invited to be there and it was a wonderful treat for us and hopefully for her. I hope it was a great experience for her! Thanks Tiffany!

I feel incredible! This was my best delivery yet. Sister is an all star. Already a pro at nursing and so alert! I'm swooning as we speak. I forgot how fast you fall in love!

Sweet baby sister will most likely have a name by tomorrow! We are sleeping on a name tonight!! More picks to come!!!!

Little Bug was born...

You are amazing. I still remember when you walked into church with a couple day old baby. I can't believe you are dressed and probably showered 3 hours after a baby. Women like you are just meant to have babies. Congratulations. Can't wait to hear the name you pick:)

You are crazy amazing. I can't believe you are posting baby news, dressed and having pictures 3 hours later. Congratulations, but I do hate you for having such an easy delivery. When can we come see her?

YAY! Congratulations! She's a doll! Wish we were closer so I could hold her! We can't wait to see what you guys decide for the name! Way to go natural, patocin and all, I've heard that makes it even more painful! I'm glad it went quickly for you! P.S. I just bought the dress Molly is wearing for Kate! :)
