Our Little Miracle

Brynne Eden finally arrived on June 29th at 9:30 pm. We cannot believe what an amazing miracle she is! For those of you that have not heard the details...I'll give a short summary :) I went in for an appointment on June 29th in the morning and my doctor had me do a test to make sure Brynne was doing okay as she was about a week late. They noticed that I was having minor contractions and during a few of those, her heart rate went down. They wanted me to go to the hospital and be monitored for a little while...and offered to just go ahead and induce to be safe. I was ready to go - so I headed to the hospital at noon, had my water broken at 1:00 pm, got the blessed epidural at 5:00 pm, and pushed from 9:00 to 9:30 and she was here! It's a huge adjustment, but I love being a mom and praise God for His wonderful gift.
