Finally our angel is here!!!

Mitch and I were up late hanging out in the nursery imagining how and when our little angel would come into our lives. I still had a week until my actual due date so we weren't planning on anything happening anytime soon.
Wrapping up our late night around 2 a.m. we were both excited and couldn't wait for what was to come....
I woke up at 4:30 a.m. to a warm gush all around me. I started laughing as I turned to Mitch and told him that I thought my water broke. We both got up and were a little frantic as we scrambled around gathering our things and thoughts. I went into the bathroom and started curling my hair, it was the only thing that I knew to do that felt 'right' to me at the time.
We arrived at Mckay Dee Hospital in Ogden Utah around 6:30 a.m. Once we registered and got settled into our delivery room the contractions started. I tried to tough out the intense contractions as long as I could, thinking I had to wait as long as possible (as if it was some sort of womanly thing I had to do) but I finally gave in and had Mitch ask the nurse for my happy drugs.

Once I received the epidural everything seemed to slow down. I took a nap, chewed on ice chips and waited with Mitch, Grandma Brooks, and LaRaine. 

The nurse came back in our room around 4:30 p.m. and instructed me to start pushing. With the help of Mitch and Grandma Brooks on each side of me I pushed for an hour and a half.

Dr Davis showed up and a few pushes later our angel Ella Audrie Buchanan came into our lives.
