Here she is!!

Well, she is finally here! I started having little cramps Sunday morning, but didn't really think anything of it. We went to church and they started getting much stronger. We decided to go to the hospital that night at 1:00 a.m. I got an epidural at 3:45 a.m., the greatest thing ever!! Things were progressing for the first few hours, but slowly. So they gave me pitocin at about 8:00 a.m. and that definately worked! I went from dilated to a 4 to a 9 in an hour. I started pushing at 9:30 and she was born at 11:21!!! As for her hair, we were just as shocked as you guys probably are. It is totally red, but it makes sense coming from Jason's family. She totally looks like Jason to me and I don't see any of my family in her so she's already a daddy's girl! We are so excited and know it will be a lot of work, but worth it! The #1 question....name!?!?! Well, we decided to go with Meali'i Ella A'alona. I will put more pictures up soon!

Baby Shower

Me & hubby on Valentine's Day
The cutest cake ever! I didn't wanna cut into it!

Jason's sisters, Chelsea & Alexis decorating onesies
Last Saturday my aunt and cousins threw my baby shower for me. I couldn't have asked for a better shower. The cutest part was everyone that came decorated onesies for me. It was in Vegas and I was 37 wks prego. We thought it was a success because my water didn't break or anything crazy! I am down to 12 days and Jason and I are soooo excited, we can't wait any longer! Jason is a little upset because this week is spring break and we are stuck in Cedar City because it's too close to my due date; however, we will try and make the best of it! For all you girls, I am dilated to a 2, 80% effaced, and she has dropped and in position! Doc doesn't think I'll go past my due date and he thinks it should be an easy delivery. Hopefully he is correct! P.S. The first pic is just a random one we threw in there :)
