A little "Mae" in July

The new Miss Gardiner decided to come to us early Thursday morning. My labor started about 6:30 Wednesday evening (the day after my due date). We arrived at the hospital at 1:30am. I was dilated to 6cm and shortly afterward my water burst (literally "burst") and she came racing out at 2:44am. As you can tell it all happened incredibly fast, but it was perfect. I was able to have my natural birth with my mom and The Man by my side pushing for 1 minute and 30 seconds. I feel so blessed. Mae is beautiful, she has light brown hair with natural blonde highlights around her hairline. She latched on immediately and didn't look back. We are trying to get rest, but it is hard for me since I love hanging out with my family so much. E and my mom are making me rest now, so more photos and news will come.

Hayley!!!! Congratulations!!! Every time I saw Brett I'd ask him, "Is Hayley still pregnant??" I've seriously been thinking about you for awhile and wondering when that baby is going to come. She's so beautiful and I LOOOOOVE the name. Way to go on an amazing birth, you're a prop now! I hope my next one goes just as smoothly!! Congratulations again and tell Eric and Ava that Carly, Casey and Cadence say HI!!! :)
