Friday, June 22 was Evelyn’s actual due date and two of the best things in the world happened. We brought Evelyn home from the hospital so we could finally be a family of four in our own place! Such a relief to have my tiny girl back with me. Caleb also finally came home. He had been with Zach’s parents and then my friend Ann and his buddy Lukan since Sunday! Zach and I both missed our boy so much. But the best thing next to having all four of us under one roof was that finally, after many many months of hoping, wishing, and coaxing, Caleb finally said, “Love you!” This Mama’s heart is full to bursting. It grew like the Grinch’s to twice its normal size.

Evelyn Elizabeth entered our world on a beautiful Monday, June 18, 2012! Weighing in at 6lb 10oz and 19.5in long she is bigger than Caleb was and nearly identical to my own birth stats! Head full of dark hair, mommy’s lips and ears and hooray daddy’s nose.
Crazy crazy birth story to come! Once I get my doula’s notes I’m going to get right on it!
Well y’all, we are going on 6 hours of fairly consistent 7-10+ contractions an hour! After sewing up my last custom order for awhile, a pedicure this morning, lunch with Zach, and a quick stop at home for Caleb and supplies I have been laboring at my mom’s house up the road. My amazing sister in law, Colleen, is down from Dallas to be our doula. Good thing she decided to come in yesterday! Gotta love her intuition. Zach came home from the wedding he was shooting with Luxe Films and we are starting to make preparations for heading to the birth center!
I won’t be posting again for a bit but there is the Twitter feed to the right (almost to the bottom if on your phone) or you can follow @ArtsyFamily. This has been a much calmer process so far so I’m hoping I can tweet a bit, but I make no promises! Don’t be upset I’m not Tweeting up a storm since Zach and I will be just a smidge occupied.
Hopefully next post will be a picture of our new baby girl! All prayers appreciated!
