I walked Joe inside so he could ride with Daddy, and then I turned to leave ... which is when my water broke. That was at 5:10. My first contraction hit at 5:30. By the time we made it home, got the kids settled to stay overnight with our friends the Buells, packed my suitcase and made it to the hospital, my contractions were coming just a few minutes apart. I was admitted at about 7:15 and Lauryn was born at 8:24. She weighed in at six pounds, twelve ounces and measured twenty inches long - our smallest baby!
Thankfully, my parents turned around and came back after they got the call, making it to the hospital in time to see Lauryn make her entrance.
