Esther Grace's birth story
At 2:30am on a Wednesday, oh wait that would make it a Thursday, I got the call! Levi said the contractions were coming on strong and that they were on their way to the hospital. Yippie!! Not wasting anytime I got up, did my hair, made some coffee, and waited on the update they would soon find out once they arrived at the hospital. At 3:40am my message read, "waterbroke at a 7". DANG YO! Grabbing my keys I popped into my car and headed south. So much excitement ran through my mind that I just couldn't make it to Salina fast enough! Up to the 6th floor, down the hall, opening the birthing room door expecting to hear some laboring action, but instead I found this sweet Momma and Daddy cuddling their newest bundle of joy. I believe Katie made a new record for shortest time in the hospital before giving birth. I'd say a grand total of 23mins?! SAY WHHHHHAaaaatt!? This Mom is a super mom in my books and what I hope for to see in my birthing time! Yea we missed out on those raw moments of birthing, but seriously what momma is going to complain about a fast birthing time? Here's some photos of Ether Grace in her first hours into the world <3 <3 <3

The life that is given to us is a precious thing that the Lord has given to us. We should celebrate this present and we must not take it for granted. God can take away our lives if He wanted to so let us be careful and always be grateful for this is a great life. A journey that will inspire people and will never be a reason for them to be afraid for it will give them the fighting spirit that they need.
