Her contractions were 5 minutes apart and it was time to head south to witness this little girl's birthday. I love the rush to get to the birth. Coffee in hand, snacks near by, and music blaring while keeping my eye's peeled for those sneaky Arizona undercover cops. As soon as I (safely) arrived it seemed that those contractions slowed down a bit. Pitocin was being set up as Mama scrolled through the list of movies to watch. Patience was necessary as things slowed down and picked back up again. It was a roller coaster of a day but when it was go time there was no slowing down. With the grandparents, siblings, and two younger children out of the room the nurse helped Mama through the first 10 minutes of pushing. Right when her full head of hair was almost completely out the nurse called for the doctor & seconds later he arrived to guide baby girl earthside.
