Ella Grace

Posted in Uncategorized on March 9, 2009 by alainayoung

Well, I have had quite the interesting/amazing weekend. It all started on Friday evening with a great dinner at Hacienda with our great friends, Sara and Joe. Sara was 9 months pregnant and due on the 14th, but informed us that she was having contractions at dinner. We all were pretty convinced that it was just pre labor contractions and nothing to worry about, so we finished dinner and went our separate ways as I secretly hoped she would go into actual labor soon. To my surprise, I got a call about an hour later informing me that they were on their way to the hospital. Yah!!!! You see, I had already informed them that I was planning on being at the hospital no matter what (even if they didn’t want me lol), but thankfully, they wanted me to be there too! So I headed to the hospital on cloud nine awaiting the arrival of the Princess! It was definitely a long night but momma was ready to start pushing at 5am. This is where it gets interesting….. I actually got to stay in the delivery room! I have always wanted to do this, so needless to say, it was a unexpected surprise that got my adrenaline pumping so hard! Joe and Sara have the same situation as Adam and I…. we don’t have family nearby. So I was more than happy to fill in! Miss Ella Grace was born at 8:01 am (poor Sara put in such a long night) and she was so beautiful and dainty weighing a whopping 6 lbs. 5 oz. 

It was so funny how this completely made my day! I think I was bawling more than the parents were! haha It was such a beautiful process with an intensity like no other! I know I know, you are thinking “Alaina, you have had a baby and been through this”! All I can say is that it is a totally different experience! 

Thank you Joe and Sara for letting me be a part of such a special and unforgettable moment in life! I will always cherish it! Little Miss Ella will always have my heart! Love you guys!
