wow, now that was amazing.

Seriously, one of the most awesome experiences in my life, no joke.  Brittany, thank you so much for allowing someone you have only met once over some (delicious) frozen yogurt into your delivery room.  I am so thrilled to have experienced this with you, your husband and mother.  I am thrilled to have captured all of it for you in pictures.  I hope you are as touched by these images as I am.

The contractions begin again.  Brittany’s epidural didn’t take completely the first time so she had a second epidural. She is tough as nails.
