Early Arrival

( writing: linda )
We're here in Portland a little early. Baby decided she wanted to come a little early. Mom started to have minor contractions sometime in the morning. After calling around hospitals the doctors in Portland said to head their way. So mom and grandma headed up, Tim headed back from Bend, and Papa and I stayed with the kids. Tim got home around1pm and we headed out around 4pm.
We made it to the hospital around 7.15pm and not much had changed. We all sat around and waited for a few hours. Kirsten showed up sometime after 7 even with my horrible directions :)
Kirsten, Grandma, and I spent some time trying to rest in the family waiting room and eventually Kirsten and I grabbed my stuff out of the car. We came back up and a few minutes later (1.10am-ish) her water broke. I left to go tell grandma and as soon as I got there Kirsten texted me saying that the baby was coming now! So we hurried to the room and met our new little angel, Madison.

1.17am. Madison Hope is born :)
more updates to come soon!!
