Baby Camille

Welcome to baby Camille Grace! Born June 19 at 7:56am. 7 lbs 5 oz and 20 inches. She surprised us by coming 9 days early, but I was glad to be done with the whole pregnancy thing! Labor and delivery went great...and FAST! I woke up at 5am, thought maybe I was having contractions, woke Nate up at 6:15 and we called his family right away to come help with the girls. We decided we better not wait for Nate's sister to get her from Carroll, so we knocked on our neighbor's door to come be with the girls for a few minutes and were headed to the hopspital at 7am. 7:15 we were at the hospital and they think I don't look uncomfortable enough to be close to having a baby, so they set me up in a temp room to check me before admitting me. Finally they decide to check me after Nate tells them (repeatedly) that my other labors went fast and I was already 10cm...then they decided to start moving a little more quickly!!! They unplugged my bed and rushed me down the hall to a real room and within about 15 minutes we were holding baby Camille! The doctor was in surgery and didn't make it, so the midwife on call delivered her and it was great!

Here are a bunch of pictures from the last few days... Ready to head to the hospital.
