OH! And Caitlin was having crazy contractions the whole time, getting worse and worse as time passed. Turns out she totally went into labor while Celia was having a baby--I think little Atticus just needed some inspiration from Eliza. So their babies have the same birthday! It's so funny and awesome. Celia and Caitlin have been friends since they were babies so it's just perfect.

Since Celia refuses to blog I guess I have to. Her labor and deliver was AWESOME. Seriously. The nurse and doctor said to NOT expect it to be so easy when it's my turn. She pushed for all of TEN MINUTES and her body already looks/practically feels like it never had a baby in it. Amazing. I won't go into graphic details because Kyle is grossed out enough already. But man. It made me really excited about birth and babies and whatnot. I loved being in there with her the whole time. I learned a lot and it was such a crazy spiritual exciting experience. The actual delivery of the baby was just so serene. NOTHING like what I expected. Her baby is BEAUTIFUL and is doing great. She may even get to go home tomorrow, even though she was born at 36 weeks! For now we're calling her Eliza Eden, but that is subject to change. Maybe. Celia and Nathan are tired but doing great. My camera cord is PACKED and totally unreachable until I move, unfortunately. There are great pictures on Nathan's camera--hopefully those will reach the interweb soon.
