She is here!! Addie arrived on May 12, 2011 at 8:43 am. I woke up at 7 am and had her by 8:43 am so needless to say it was a world-wind of a morning. When I got up, I lost a little fluid and felt cramps. I called my parents and told them what was going on and they decided to head this way. By 7:20 I was having regular contractions about 2 minutes apart. We rushed Parker over to Lucas' parent's house and made our way to the hospital. We got to the hospital about 8:15 and they immediately put me into a room. All I wanted was my epidural but the contractions were coming so fast I could not stay still long enough for them to put in my IV. I was dilated 8 cm and my doctor thought we could still try and get the epidural but no such luck. Addie decided she needed to come out and I was ready for her to be out!! She weighed 8 lbs. 9 oz. and 20 1/2 in. long. She is perfect!! Her collar bone does have a small break on one side but it will heal in time. Parker has been the best BIG brother ever!! He wants to hold her, kiss on her and help us out in any way!! He will really enjoy her in a few more months!!
Our sweet babies!!

Here are a few pictures of Addie's room and me 38 weeks prego. We are just playing the waiting game for our little girl to arrive!! Over the past few weeks, Parker got tubes put in and adenoids taken out so we are also waiting for him to fully recover. He is doing good, just still congested. They say it can take a few weeks. Hopefully by the time Addie comes, he will be back to normal!! He seems excited for her to come...when we ask if he is ready to see his baby sister he says, YES!! I think he will be such a big helper and an awesome BIG brother!!
