{Hunter Grace is HERE!}

**So I don't forget every detail**
 
On June 20th I was told to call the hospital at 5:30 am for my induction.
*I was induced a week early because my uncle would be the doctor on call the week of my due date and that would be awkward!
 
So anyways I called, total fail, they were too packed and would have to call me later when a bed became available, F-A-I-L! They ended up calling around 9:30 am and we were ready.
We got settled and changed around 10:30 and started the Pitocin ( I was 3 cm dilated).
 
No contractions had begun and I was still 3 cm around 1:00 pm so they broke my water to start labor. Everything started to pick up then. I was checked around 4:00 pm and was at 4 cm.
 
We recently had a hail storm and had been waiting on the adjuster to give us an estimate on my car. The only day she could come was today and all she had to do was give us some paperwork so Drake ran out to the car to meet her. I was only 4 cm right?!?
 
My besties Natalie and Alison came in to keep me company. We realized that my epidural didn't take all the way and I could feel the left side so they called for the anesthesiologist to come back in. Not two minutes later it was time to push. I started panicking telling the nurse and my besties that it was time, and I could feel it, and Drake wasn't there, and this BABY was coming!!
 
The nurses started yelling for the doctor and the anesthesiologist, Natalie was texting Drake telling him to run, and I'm trying to keep this baby from coming. Al and Nat got in place to help me start pushing because it was now or never!

 
After what seemed like forever the doctor and Drake both ran in, I got a shot of lidocaine to numb the left side and after about 2 minutes, Hunter was here at 5:18 pm.
 
Four hours of labor and two minutes of pushing was quick and worth it.
 
Because she came so quick she swallowed lots of fluid and is gagging lots now and having difficulty eating but we are getting better!!
 
We are so happy to be home!!
 
 

{Happy Easter}

Hunter’s {Nursery} Glimpse…

I have had SO much fun decorating for Hunter’s arrival. For those that don’t know Hunter Grace will be here June 27th! We are so excited. I think Grayson is the most excited. Here’s a glimpse into her  nursery. I am so fortunate to have had a lot of these items readily available and we didn’t have to buy much!!

This dresser was my mom’s that I refinished and added new hardware… Why yes, that’s a RAM! ha!! This was at my grandmother’s and I just LOVED it! I painted it hot pink and think it adds some modernality, except no one else really likes it but me! It will stay there until I can find something else to put in it’s place! Or I might just keep!

I just love the changing table. I bought this mirror from HL and painted and sanded it, much better! Her bows are a work in progress! Poor girl needs some help!!

I LOVE her bedding! Such a steal! My mom and I found it BRAND NEW at a thrift shop for $7. It came with no skirt, but ha, who can’t make that!!

Here are a few things I am {LOVING} in her room… The chair was my grandmothers (worn out and perfect), her monogrammed bonnet, the cutest shoes EVER, her fabulous lamp from Home Goods…

her monogrammed boppy (I love that Grayson used it and I was able to monogram a new cover for her), my TB diaper bag to carry her things, and her fabulous woven basket to hold whatever Grayson decides to put in there.

This was my parents old furniture that I repainted. It definitely needs some touching up these days!!
