What a Week!

I know that I am known by many as the worlds worst blogger.  Since I started our blog I have managed to update it about every 6 to 12 months.  Needless to say that is not quite often enough to keep everyone updated on our life!  I am not sure if anyone even checks our blog anymore, but I just had to update considering what an amazing week our family has had!  Since last Sunday (10/26/08) Lucy Elizabeth Drummond has joined our family, my brother Austin received his mission call, and we celebrated Halloween!

Lucy was born on October 26, 2008 at 12:56 p.m.  She weighed 6 lbs. 8 oz. and was 19 1/2 inches long.  I went into labor at about 2:30 a.m. Sunday morning.  I did not want to go to the hospital and be sent home so I decided to wait until the contractions got closer and more regular. Ross and I took Will to my parents and went to the hospital at about 9:00 a.m.  Once we  were at the hospital things moved pretty quickly.  At first they were going to send me home, even though my contractions were only 2-3 minutes apart.  Thank goodness right before they were going to discharge me my water broke, which meant I got to stay.  From there I quickly got my epidural and life was great!  I am so thankful for modern medicine!  Once my doctor arrived I pushed a few times and Lucy was born.
