I have been MIA from the blogging world as of late. I have a good reason though!

See I had a very good reason!

Evelyn Darcy was born October 11th at 10:19am. After going to the Doctor on the 10th and then having contractions all day I still wasn't expecting to meet my daughter the next morning. I woke up in at 1:15am on the 11th having to go pee, which was typical. I went back to bed and before I fell asleep I felt weird. I got up and rushed back to the bathroom. Then it happened, my water broke. It was totally unexpected and a little terrifying. I thought I was ready for having her, but I really wasn't. So we rushed to the hospital and I was admitted and settled in my labor & delivery room by 2:30am.

On the way to the hospital my contractions really started. I had no idea the pain I was in for. I had wanted to do everything naturally without any drugs. I did, but I wished I would have had an epidural. The experience was pretty traumatic with the amount of pain I was in. I wish I could have enjoyed her birth a little more. I guess I know for next time.

We stayed in the hospital for 2 days and then headed home. It's very surreal taking your baby home. It's almost like you can't believe you're allowed to keep her. They just let you leave the hospital with this perfect little baby. That drive home really changed everything.

Hopefully either later this week or sometime next week I can write more about adjusting to having Evelyn home & the responsibilities of mommyhood. We'll see though, my time to just get things done is pretty sporadic!
