So I haven't written in a long time and I don't have much energy to write now! But, I will put a couple of cute pictures of our little monkey and indian girl. She's a pretty stressed little girl and doesn't like to sleep much during the day. We're trying a few different things now, and hopefully things will get a little bit better. She's really precious though, and Cash is really good with her. Enjoy!

Okay, so here are a few details from our blessed day and a few more pictures for your enjoyment. My due date was July 2nd, and my doctor, Dr. Klomp, was going out of town the afternoon of July 1st. Just my luck! The guy takes one vacation a year, and it happens to be during my due date. So, I was very stressed about it. He wanted to induce me because he really wanted to deliver our baby girl. He's an amazing doctor. Anyway, with a lot of prayers, and working 10 hour days two days before, my contractions actually started on Sunday the 29th. Nothing to serious, just little contractions throughout the day. Ryan and I went around the house picking stuff up, getting stuff ready, and finally packed my hospital bag. I woke up a few times during the night with some pretty strong contractions, but was able to go back to sleep. Around 1:15 they started to get strong, and pretty regular so I was up. At 2:00 I woke up Ryan b/c I needed his coaching. Around 3:00 we had Loni come over to stay with Cash and then my contractions really started to get strong, and right on top of each other. I basically told Ryan I couldn't handle it anymore and we were on our way to the hospital. Just like in the movies, WE GOT PULLED OVER on our way. Seriously, are you kidding me? I was telling Ryan to just keep going but he stopped and the cop took his sweet time getting to the car. It was really early in the morning, so I'm sure he thought we were drunks. He let us go, we got to the hospital, got out, got to the doors only to find they were LOCKED and we had to get back in the car and use the ER entrance. Ryan put me in a wheelchair, we left our car running in the ER lane and unlocked. We got to triage just barely before 4:00 and after some mess there (I guess they thought I was FAKING hard labor), they finally checked me and I was at a 7-8. They freaked out, called the Dr. like I had asked them to earlier and then said "No drugs sweetie" and rushed me to labor & delivery. Good thing Ryan is the best coach ever and got me through it. By the time I was to my room I was a 9 and Dr. Klomp got there just in time for delivery. She was born at 4:37 a.m.! It went great.

I do't have too much time, but I will say that our baby girl is here and she's nice and healthy. 7 lbs, 1 oz, 20 inches long. Born June 30th at 4:37 am. Here are a couple pictures I'll get some more lateer. Don't mind how scary I look, it was just a couple hours after delivery. I'll add details to this post later, but right now I want to go to sleep! :)
