So little...

Baby Jane

Jane's 2 week appointment. She is very healthy! Praise God!

She is so much fun already. She gained 1 full pound at her 2 week appointment! She clearly doesn't eat enough!


The day finally came! I couldn't believe that Jane slept through the entire thing. It was an unforgettable time and we enjoyed the reception back at John's parent's house.

Labor & Delivery

And then there were three...

Janey and me...

Jane's first screams! She had some great lungs already!

So... I went into the hospital on May 1st at about 3:00 pm and had some medicine to begin dilating because I was at zero. At 7:00 pm they checked and I was at 1 so the medicine was working. I started have contractions pretty close together and by midnight I needed a shot to take the edge off the contractions at 3:00 am they started the pitocin and from 4:00 - 6:30 am I was in severe pain but then the epidural came and I was flying high and not feeling a thing. Thank you Lord. I dilated from 3 1/2 to 7 centimeters in 45 minutes. At 8:45 am I was ready to push and I had her at 9:34 am. I never felt closer to the Lord in depending on Him for everything and thankful that she came out so healthy.

The Scripture is so true..."Whenever a woman is in labor she has pain, because her hour has come; but when she gives birth to the child, she no longer remembers the anguish because of the joy that a child has been born into the world." John 16:21
