Miss Scarlette Grace has Arrived

Woo Hoo
She is finally here!!!!!

Yes, it is 3am and I am blogging from my hospital bed:)

Gab and I between Contractions.

Labor was painful but super quick.
Here is our story.

Chad, the girls and I were playing pictionary, which I usually win and was not up to par as I was having mild contractions. We decided to quite playing around 10:15p because the contractions were getting uncomfortable. Called my midwife and my neighbor Robin, finished packing my bag and off we went to the hospital. We arrived and had to wait to be seen, finally got to a room at about 11:30. My midwife checked me and I was 8cm all ready... yeah!
Got my IV going and had to wait around for the antibiotic bag to get completely into my IV otherwise it would have been even quicker.
She arrived at 12:21am.

Here is my sweet baby girl.

She looks like Gabby & Graham when they were born.
