Our Little Miss Has Arrived!

Sage Elizabeth Jackson
Born: June 2, 2010

Time: 2:10 PM

I realize that it has been almost 3 weeks since our little Sage graced this world and I am just now posting to our blog. Sorry to everyone for taking so long!

Here's the story..
I woke up on Wednesday morning to my water breaking at 5:30. We got to the hospital and all admitted by 6 and I was out walking by 7. Around 7:30 I was given an IV and started on Pitocen to get my contractions going (I wasn't feeling any). After upping my pitocen 3 times and 3 hours later I was feeling contractions enough to ask for an epidural. Unfortunately my first epidural didn't work and around noon I found myself on the bed with terrible contractions getting a second epidural. This one worked so my nurse decided to see how dilated I was..I was already at a 10! So needless to say, I had to sit and wait for an hour for the epidural to wear off before I could start pushing. Finally Marie, my nurse, told me it was time to start pushing. I pushed about 5 times with her before Dr. Horsley arrived and then I pushed 3 times with him and out she came with dark curly hair and the cutest squeal that I'd ever heard :)

Quinn was the most amazing supportive husband that I could have ever asked for. He was at my side lifting my legs when they needed moved, propping up my head with pillows, and offering me the throw-up tray when I thought I needed it. He let me almost break his finger while squeezing it during a contraction and never said a word. I'm such a lucky woman to have such a great guy to call my husband. He didn't even get white and pass out. He was there at the worst of my pregnancy holding it all together for me. I love him more than he knows and more than I could ever hope to tell him.
Since that wonderful day 3 weeks ago, I find myself without sleep and taking care of the most beautiful little girl every morning at 4 am. I now wear spit-up on my clothes and do laundry every day and I LOVE IT! Being a mom to my little miss is the most wonderful calling the Lord has given me. I am so happy that he trusts me to raise one of his greatest blessings!
