For the Parkers...

I promised Amy Parker that I would put something in our window when we went to the hospital... but that isn't going to happen (until later tonight when my parents put something up for us) because it was a bit of a surprise that we're here at the hospital and staying! Since I'm now overdue they sent us to Utah Valley Hospital this morning to have a "non-stress test" to make sure everything was okay with the munchkin. When they were monitoring her, her heart rate dropped really low at one point (which it luckily hasn't in the 9 hours since) but with overdue babies in these cases they induce labor. So Aaron and I are hanging out at Utah Valley about 3 hours away from my next round of prostaglandin gel and 9 hours away from them starting the pitocin and breaking my water! It looks like we'll be welcoming baby Wilk tomorrow! I hope this post is a good substitute for the lack of window notice! :)

Woo hoo! You parents put a pretty pink ribbon, which is now outshined by a giant red poster with all of the facts, in your window. We actually saw your dad coming out of your apartment last night and asked about you :) We're so excited to meet little Emery Mae! Congratulations! Oh wow. We're just stoked for you!

Thanks for calling me yesterday, Britt! Such good news!! Jeff's mom said, "You must be a good friend if she called you and the baby was just barely born a few hours ago." I'm glad we are good friends. :) And now let the Hoopes - Wilkinson love story begin. Jacob is so excited to meet baby Emery! Sending our love from Idaho...
