Samantha & Magdalena

Sam has been spending the night at our house every Saturday night since mid 2007. This was hardly ever missed till I went on bed rest a few months ago. Needless to say this little girl has been having a hard time with this. Well tonight we were able to start it going again. We had some yummy take-out and watched some TV. We are major couch potatoes, but it's raining, so we couldn't do much else anyway. LOL!

When it came time to head off to bed, Sam said for the millionth time how excited she was that Maggie was here. For months she's been saying how she can't wait till she's born. She's a very sweet girl!!! Tonight I had to get some stuff ready for church tomorrow, so I asked her to check on Maggie. Just a second later, instead of hearing Maggie crying, I heard Sammy singing to her. She sang that little baby to sleep. What a LOVE! I headed upstairs and listened as she told me all about it and then said that she just wanted to cry. I asked her if she wanted to cry because she was happy or sad. She said Happy! So I told her to go right ahead. She takes my breath away. I can't believe this little girl is going to be 12 this week. She's growing up too fast.

I love our Sammy girl!!!

Magdalena is finally here!!!

Maggie is finally here!!! We headed to the hospital around 4:30am on Friday morning because contractions were 5 minutes apart and I was progressing pretty fast. I honestly don't know if this girl could make up her mind. On minute she's trying to join us early and then when we ask her to come she decides not to and then when she finally decides it's time she hurries. UHG!!! I LOVE my midwife. I was totally calm through the whole thing. The med's help a lot of course, but I have to say, I had a great experience. Well, ok... I didn't like the part were the med's wore off early. Her head poked through and I could feel everything. I said a little prayer and heavenly father got me through it. They gave my a little more to help, but the med's didn't kick in till she was out on my chest. But, they did help me get some much needed rest. We checked in at 4:50am and she was born at 7:41am. She cried till she was placed on my chest. I love being her comfort zone. She's a very easy going little girl and sleeps a lot. I'm planning on taking a bunch of pictures of her soon. But so far this is what I've got...Wes is totally going to teach this little girl to stick her tongue up her nose. I know it.
Sweet Grandma cut the cord on Maggie. She also did Max's last year. I loved being able to have my Mom there. I don't think I snapped at her this time. At least from what I can remember. LOL! I can get mean when I'm in pain.
Cori hurried to the hospital to see Maggie and to help welcome her into the world, but Maggie hurried out too fast for Cori to make it the little stinker. LOL!
Daddy's wrapped around her finger!

I was so excited to see Dad. Sammy took this picture for us. She's getting good! I think Grandma got a picture of Sammy holding Maggie, but I forgot to. Dang it!
Aunt Di came to visit Friday night.
Aunt Net came a couple minutes later. We had fun talking and adoring Maggie.Later Wendy, Adam and they're little family came to hang out. As you can see we had fun!

The hospital didn't have very comfortable beds for the fathers, so I sent Wes home to sleep. This is the picture Maggie and I sent him to say goodnight.I knew she was going to be ridiculous, but COME ON!!! WOW!!!
I LOVE our sweet baby girl!!!
