So before you get to thinking that I'm prego - I'm not! My sister gave birth yesterday to a cute baby girl, Lucy Mae. It was quite the adventure actually.
It started out with her having contractions all throughout the day but nothing serious. Around 5 p.m., amidst quicker and more painful contractions, my genius sister decided to ordered her favorite dinner at Rumbi and sent her husband Steve out to get it. Of course while he was gone the contractions got really painful and super close together so as soon as Steve got home she rushed him out the door and straight to the hospital. They live all the way up in the hills in Suncrest (above Draper) and so a quick trip to the hospital is no easy feat. On the way down the contractions got much worse and about halfway there Em's water broke. Their other daughter, Naomi, was with them crying her eyes out because her mom was screaming in pain. Steve turned into Mr. Incredible, zooming down Bangerter Hwy at 100 mph, weaving in and out of traffic, crossing over medians, and honking at everyone to get out of the way! (all in rush hour traffic too - go Steve!) They even called 911 afraid that they might have to have the baby on the side of the road. 911 told them to just keep going if they could make it. When they got to the ER the doctors rushed out and got Emily on a stretcher, she pushed about two times and the little Lucy Mae popped into the world. What a way to come! Just was like the movies.
Congrats Em and Steve!
