August 30th 6:40am: I wake up McCall for our daily scripture study
7:00: "I think I'm having contractions, can you wait around for awhile"
7:30: We drop off Lydia at a friends and head to the hospital
8:30: McCall's finally registered in and she's checked by the nurses, she's dilated to a 8!
9:30: McCall pleads with the nurses to tell the anesthesiologists to hurry up for the 30th time
9:45: All is peaceful, McCall has never felt so blessed in her life (epidural given)
11:40ish: ready to push
11:47: Emree is born into the world, but the spelling of her name remains in jeopardy
This is after Emree's first bath
Lydia really wasn't this happy to see her, she actually walked into the hospital looked at the baby, ignored her and went about doing her own thing. She was pretty whiny for the first couple days, because of lack of attention but is doing much better now.
I just realized that we don't have a picture of McCall and Emree which is what we really need, because McCall was absolutely amazing throughout the entire process. Thanks to her I have two beautiful daughters!
Ward members have been really great, when I needed to go back to school the following week there were awesome girls in our ward that volunteered to watch Lydia for the entire day to help McCall rest. And we received some amazing meals as well. Her mom is coming in tonight which should help out a lot.
