Baby Mya is Here!

 On Monday morning I had a doctor appointment and I was "looking like I'd go into labor soon". My mom booked a flight for the next morning, and sure enough- I started into labor on Monday afternoon. We went into the hospital around 6:30 pm and Mya was born Tuesday morning at 2:42 am!
 The labor was a lot easier this time around, except that I waited too long to ask for my epidural and it didn't come til I was a 9. (I'll never make that mistake again! Ha ha!) But all in all, it was pretty smooth.
 Holding Mya for the very first time! So sweet!
 Bryn and my Mom came later that morning to meet her and it was really cute to see Bryn's reaction.
 After three and a half years of being the only child, I'm sure it's going to be an adjustment for Brynlee to share the spotlight. But so far it's been okay and Bryn's been sweet.

 I am so, so grateful my Mom is here to help with everything and to cuddle little Mya.
 Mya was 8 lbs, 3 oz and 20 inches long. So she's shorter and chubbier than Bryn....and we are LOVING the rolls and chubby cheeks!
We are so completely filled with gratitude for this sweet little girl. It was a long road getting here with the miscarriages and all the shots and pills with this pregnancy, but all of that immediately faded into nothing as soon as she was born. She's a little miracle girl and we are so happy to have her in our home!
