|Hunter Joseph Schafer|
April 26, 2013 is the day my life changed forever and it is the best change ever! I am so blessed to call this little man mine and I will forever thank God for this wonderful blessing. The night before we went to the hospital I could not sleep. I was so excited to get there and get things started so I could finally meet Hunter. I was restless all night and then finally just decided around 5 to take a shower, get ready and fix blueberry muffins :). Matt got up around 6 and showered, got ready, ate and we got on the road to Manhattan.

During all this time Matt was at lunch and I was starting to get really emotional. I didn't know what was going on but our nurse was so good and just kept telling me that it was going to be ok. I finally text Matt and asked him to come back as soon as he could. He was just pulling into the hospital so I wasn't alone for that long. He felt bad for leaving but neither of us knew anything was going to happen like that. Everything turned out just fine but I never got any rest :) When I got the epidural I was almost to a 5 so I was progressing nicely.
|Perfect little man.|

Matt was excellent since he was the only one helping me for awhile since the nurses were changing and going over things. He would count for me and just talk me through everything. I could not have done it without him. About 6:30 my doctor got there and was there for 2 contractions and then little man was here! She told me I made her job easy. Haha. So 38 mins after pushing we had our perfect little man. I know I don't have anything to compare it to but for me I think I got lucky on this labor. Things for the most part went very smoothly and as weird as it is to say it was easy.
