So very blessed!

I can't help but to just stare at this little miracle! It's amazing to me how much love you really have for your baby. I'm so blessed to have such a wonderful husband and now a beautiful, healthy baby girl! I have dreamed of this moment for such a long time, it's still very surreal. I can't believe she is finally here. What an incredible journey, and I can't wait for what lies ahead.


I love this picture of our new family of three and our fabulous doctor. We are so thankful that Dr. Meredith was able to help us through infertility and make it possible for us to have this little angel! Tagg was amazing through the labor and delivery. We were scheduled for induction at 11:00 on Thursday morning, but got a call saying there were 5 ladies in labor and we'd have to wait till they delivered before we could go up. We arrived at the hospital at 12:30 p.m. They broke my water at 2:00 and then started me on pitocin. At 4:00 p.m. I was dialated at 4 cm and 90%, which is when I asked for the epidural. At 7:20, I had dialated to 6 cm. The nurse said it still could be a couple of hours, so we were prepared for an all nighter. Well, at 8:00 p.m. I started feeling a lot of pressure, called the nurse in, and she said, "you're complete. I will go call Dr. Meredith to let him know." When she left, Tagg asked me, "so, what does complete mean?" And I looked at him and said..."Honey, I'm at a 10!" I think at that point his nerves really kicked in. The nurse came back and said to push through a contraction to see if we could get things going, that was at 8:15 p.m. I pushed through 2 contractions and then she said she had better call the Dr. He got there pretty fast, and was panting a little. Tagg asked him if he ran here, and Dr. Meredith said, all the way up the stairs! The Dr. wanted me to push through another contraction so he could see where I was at, just as he was telling me that most first time labors can be pushing for an hour or two at least, so to prepare myself...then he quickly told me to stop pushing! He said, oh never mind, she's coming! And little Londyn was born at 8:40 p.m. It went really quick and I couldn't believe it was over, just like that. Tagg didn't pass out either, for all those who were wondering. He did say he got really nervous that the doctor wasn't going to make it though, but once he arrived, he was good to go. What an experience!!

Okay, last one. This is us just getting home from the hospital. So, here's a crazy story. We left the hospital on Saturday around noon and went to Wal-Mart to pick up my prescriptions. When Tagg got back to the car, he said, well...let's go see Brooke (she had just had a baby, too). I kinda looked at him like, are you kidding, we just left the hospital. Anyway, Tagg had got a call from our nurse at the hospital letting us know we hadn't been discharged yet and needed to come back because there was a problem. Not something we really wanted to hear. Apparently, there was another Williams baby girl born and they thought our baby had got all of her shots, but hadn't. So, we had to go back so she could have her Hepatitis B shot, and her first screening. Crazy hospital! :o)
