So, my new niece has finally clawed her way out of the womb. After Heather's water broke on Saturday around 2:30 p.m. it only took another 29 or so hours to actually start having contractions and get the baby out. But i have to give Heather props, she did it naturally with no form of pain drugs. Not by choice however, just because they baby came faster than expected. I saw her and the baby this morning and both look more than healthy. This is my thinking on it all. Heather was suppose to give the lesson on Sunday in Relief Society and so I think that she faked her water breaking thus making it so i had to give the lesson for her AND take her of Ethan at the same time while Heather and Eric chilled in the hospital eating popsicles and watching movies. Don't you find it convenient that her water broke the day before she was suppose to teach but didn't start having contractions until well after church was over on sunday night? yeah, give it some thought.

More exciting news is my friend Casey came to visit this weekend for the 4th of July. It was a lot of fun to see her and, even if it was just for a few days, have a friend my own age to hang out with. After lots of thought, i realized i could NEVER move and live in another country becasue my two favorite holidays are American holidays. 4th of July and Thanksgiving. If i move to another country i can't celebrate them. Well i could technically but it's not as fun when your the only one celebrating. This year for 4th of July i am sort of disappointed in myself. The only fireworks i watched were some fireworks on TV. Doesn't that sound like something an old person would do?? What am i turning into??

I have pictures to post of both the baby and Casey's and I's adventures while she was here but Eric has the camera at the hospital right now so i can't get them off it quite yet so hopefully soon i'll be back and post some pictures.
