ila's birth story part 1
Ila Ann Hyde Saturday, September 15, 2012- 6 lb. 11 oz.- 20 inches long- 5:24AM I feel like a few things had to be done before our sweet girl could be born. On Friday, Sept. 14 Jackson had his 2 yr. check up. I was already nervous that I was going to have baby sister earlier than the 14th so I had Meggie on call to take Jackson if I couldn’t take him, but luckily I could take him and Emily came with me to help me out. Then Jackson, Emily and I went to Target for a little bit, got lunch and then went back to Grandma Siegfried’s house to eat. While we were there Grandma and I went through ALL of her old baby clothes that she was going to let me borrow for sister. It was really nice because Emily played with Jackson while my mom and me went through the clothes. Later that day I remembered that the Utah State Fair was going on. It ended on Sunday the 16th and Saturday the 15th was the BYU vs. Utah game and I knew Andrew was not going to miss that, so if we didn’t go tonight then we wouldn’t be able to go. Chloe said that she wanted to go with us, which was so nice because Jackson loves her so much and she was able to ride some of the rides with him. While we were there I had some contractions that were a little harder than usual, but they weren’t consistent at all so I really didn’t think about them. I thought that they were just from walking around.
