7:58 AM

It's with mixed emotions that I write this:
Last night Julia went into labor at home and by the time we got to the ER this morning, she was fully dilated and ready to push - which she did for nearly 2 hours and had our sweet baby girl @ 6:23 this morning (pic attached). Never once did she ask for medication or to even go to the hospital while at home. She's absolutely incredible and I'm so proud of her.

Now for the "mixed emotions": when Ella was born, she didn't immediately cry so they took her to the warmer for about 10 minutes and she would only grunt - breathing, but not sufficiently.
So she's now in the NICU while they run tests to determine the cause (could be nothing or...). Regardless, she's going to remain there for no less than 5 days.
Obviously we're flooded with emotions but ask that you, our friends and family, pray now that everything is ok with her and that ultimately God's Will will be done.
