Miss Layna Sage

HURRAY!!! I'm Here!!!

We are very excited to welcome our newest little girl, Layna Sage, into our family. She was born Saturday, March 28th at 6:39 pm. Really, she came at the PERFECT time. I was scheduled to be induced on Monday, but thankfully she decided to come sooner. I worked all night Friday, came home and slept until about 2 in the afternoon when contractions woke me up. I didn't think much of them at first, just got ready to go into work that night until about 4 I decided that maybe, just maybe, something a little more was happening. We finally decided it was best to go and get checked, see if this was the real thing or not. It was on the car ride from Lehi to Orem when the contractions were really starting to hurt. Anway, we got to the hospital and I was already at an 8!! All I could think was hurry and get my epidural in because I'm NOT doing this without it! They barely got my epidural in when just minutes later Layna was born. We couldn't believe how fast everything went. We were at the hospital at 5 and she was born at 6:39 pm. It was amazing.
Since Madalyn was 6lbs at 36 weeks I was worried that Layna would be a big baby but she was only 6lbs 3oz, and 19" long. Another adorable little peanut. :)

Madalyn does really well with Layna. And thankfully she doesn't get jealous when Mommy holds the baby, at least not yet.
