Happy Birthday Kaylyn!!!






I can't believe my baby girl is 7 today. It seems like yesterday Chris and I were making the hour drive to St. Vincent's in rush hour trafic at 9:00 in the morning, in the pouring rain. Not sure if I was really in labor or if I had a stomach virus (That's another story for another time). I guess it never occured to me that I might actually be in labor 8 days early! I kept screaming at Chris that he was going to HAVE to drive faster and I even threatened to drive myself! We finally made it to the hospital at about 10:30. After being examined in the office, we were told by my Dr. that he wasn't sure if I was in labor or not (very reassuring) and he was going to send me to L and D to be observed. We couldn't get in touch with ANY of our family at this point and I was scared to death. After we got to the triage area and I was all hooked up to the monitors, my water broke about 15 minutes later (guess I really was in labor). About 2 hours later at 1:53 pm Kaylyn Brooke Chilton made her grand entrance into the world and our lives were forever changed...
