16: Special Delivery | At 4 pm on August 19, 2010, two days after your expected arrival date, Mommy was busy working on her computer trying to pass the time – mostly thinking about you – when she had a tightening feeling in her belly. About 10 minutes later, it happened again. Mommy called Daddy who was on his way home from work and told him that she thought she might be going into labor. When Daddy got home, they called the doctor and told him that they thought Mommy was having contractions. The doctor told them to wait until the contractions got 5 minutes apart and lasted around 30 seconds each. Knowing that this would be their last chance to grab a bite to each before the big arrival, Mommy and Daddy headed to their favorite Sushi bar, Sushi Blues. They ordered (Mommy did not eat any sushi) and soon after the contractions started getting stronger and more frequent. They ate their meals quickly and headed back to the house. Not to long after arriving home, Mommy’s contractions were 5 minutes apart and the doctor told her she could come on in to the hospital for an exam. Daddy gathered all the bags – packed weeks ago – and he and Mommy got in the car and headed to the hospital. Daddy pulled up to the front door around 10 pm and a nice nurse came to the car with a wheel chair to take Mommy to the labor and delivery ward. While Daddy parked the car, Mommy checked in with the nurse who began to examine her. Once Daddy arrived the nurse called the doctor to come have a look. Mommy was 7 cm and ready to have a baby!! Mommy and Daddy were moved to a delivery room where mommy was given medicine to help the pain go away. After a few hours of waiting, it was time for Hailey’s big arrival. At 4:35 am on August 20, 2010 Mommy and Daddy met their new baby girl, Hailey Marie Curtis. It was the happiest day of their lives.
