Our sweet Audrey

She's here!!!! I started having contractions at 3AM on Thursday. By 4:30AM, they were 3-5 minutes apart. We reached the hospital right before 5AM. I received my epidural around 7:30. From then until midafternoon, dilation was steady but then slowed. I pushed for less than an hour, she made her first appearance at 4:58PM, Thursday, April 24th. She sure is a beauty! I still can't believe she's actually ours to keep! Tonight is our last night in the hospital. Since the last 2 nights I've only gotten around 4 hours of sleep, I may call it quits very shortly. We head home sometime tomorrow. We are at CMC University if anyone would like to stop by and say hi or just give us a call at home over the weekend, we'd love to have visitors. Thanks again for everyone's care and prayers, God made this whole experience absolutely amazing and perfect. Audrey is such a sweet little girl. I can't wait for you all to meet her! Steve calls her mini Dena but he knows she looks just like him!!


My two favorite people. I'm one proud mama!
