She's here!

Introducing Scarlett Emma
7lbs 2.8oz
19 in
Scarlett was in a hurry to get here, 2 weeks early and not wasting any time!
We arrived at the hospital just after 8am and Scarlett was here at 8:52!
I've never had a real desire to give birth naturally, but somehow (with GREAT support from my husband) I did... 
Because things were already so progressed and moving so fast, I wasn't allowed to get the epidural. 
I may or may not have cried when they (as in the nurse because the doctor certainly didn't make it time) told me that!
Full story coming soon :)


She's a beauty like her proud big sister! Everyone is healthy and happy!

My heart grew bigger on this wonderful Mother's Day! I'm so thankful for my girls. 
Words can't describe how happy they make me.

Happy Mother's Day!

She is BEAUTIFUL and so are you. I have heard going natural makes for a better/easier/faster recovery so hopefully that is true for you!

oh my! I would have freaked somewhat if they said I couldn't have the epidural! You are one brave mama and I can't wait to read all the details! I'm so happy for you!!

I'm so so happy for you! Can't wait to see more pictures and hear the story. It's actually my dream that labor goes so fast that going natural is the only option (hopefully making it better than it would going natural for a really long time?). Congratulations!!!
