She is here!!! And we really couldn't be more in love with her! She is such a perfect little girl. It all started Wednesday...I REALLY wanted her to come and so I sat and bounced on the excersise ball pretty much all night and I had gotten a pedicure earlier that day ( rubbing your feet is supposed to help bring on labor, so Ive heard ). Well I woke up at 1 am thursday morning ( a normal bathroom wake up time haha ) and started feeling some contractions. I timed them at about 7-8 min apart and tried going back to sleep but they were really making my lower back ache so I couldn't sleep. I started timing them again and they kept getting closer and closer and started hurting me more and more. So at about 3 am I woke up my mom and we went to the hospital. When I got there my contractions were REALLY starting to hurt and I knew that this had to be it. I was a 3+ and after about 40 min I was at a 4+. I called Spencer and told him to get on a flight and to hurry cause this sweet girl was on her way! He had booked a flight to come here the night before for sunday ( i didnt know this ) and so luckily he was able to switch it and he would land in Utah at 9 in the morning. I got my epidural at about 6 that morning and it seriously couldn't have come any later. CONTRACTIONS HURT haha. I was seriously in pain and nausous and getting really dehydrated. Luckily it kicked in fast and it was smooth sailing from there. When Spencer got on the plane I was dialated to a 5. All my nurses and my doctor were so sweet and really wanted Spencer to be able to make it so they didn't check me or break my water until he got to the hospital. My dad, Tanner, and Preston picked Spencer up at the airport and came straight there. They let Preston come in and say hi to me and then they left. I was telling everyone for about the last 2 hours or so that I was feeling a TON of pressure so right after that my doctor came in to check and break my water. He was like, you are ready for sure! I was fully dialated and she was ready to come right then. I only had to push 3 times and she was here :), 15 min after Spencer had arrived. It was such a blessing that he was able to make it, I really think she was waiting just for him.
Look at that chub! She was born at 10:36 am on September 15, 2011. She weighed 7 pounds 4 ounces and was 18 inches long.
First pictures with mommy, daddy and grammy!
This was when she was in the nursery with Spenc and they were getting her cleaned up and looking all pretty.
When we walked by the nursery we could see Spencer and Lylah and Preston was SO excited that he could see them and was saying dada and baby and laughing. Spenc tried taking a picture...I wish you could see how excited he was though. It was seriously adorable.
Preston just LOVES her. He was so excited to see baby and was even giving her kisses. Lets hope he stays that way :).
Grandpa and Lylah...
Lylah and Mommy....I LOVE her sooooo much!
She was wide awake that night and making faces...she is just adorable :)
We are back at my parents house now just enjoying our sweet little baby. We are planning on heading back home to Arizona next sunday. Little Lylah has lots of Arizona family to meet! We are so excited to show her off haha. I LOVE my family. I really couldn't be happier :).
