She finally came! She was only a day late but it felt like a lot longer. Jacob and I have been so ready for her to come and were getting a little impatient. Here are a couple of my last pregnancy photos.
40 Weeks and 1 day! Right before we left for the hospital.
I started feeling contractions all Saturday night and then by about 5:00am they started becoming more consistent but still about 10 minutes apart. We just hung out at the house all morning and enjoyed a movie and some breakfast and then headed for the hospital at about 1 pm because the contractions were coming about 5 minutes apart.
We had the whole hospital to ourselves so we walked laps around it for a while and they let me eat ice chips...yeah, great huh? The doctor broke by water at about 3:00 and then it was just a waiting game. I guess Evie just wanted to wait to the very last minute! We started pushing at about 8:30 and Jacob was a great coach a huge help to keep me going. she was finally born at 11:05 on November 13th, 2011!
It was an amazing experience and I feel like it is impossible to put into words all the emotions I felt when I got to hold her! We are both so grateful we get to have her be apart of our eternal family.
Everything went really really well, our doctor was fantastic and the hospital staff was incredible. Since we had her so late on Sunday night they wanted to have us stay until Tuesday. Jacob was a trouper just hanging out for two days at the hospital and waiting on me and Evie hand and foot. He is the most amazing man, husband, and father.

She is the sweetest little girl we could ask for! We are so blessed to finally have her here and able to hold! Life a really good!
