a christmas miracle

After all our worrying and prayers over the last week, we got the best news on Christmas Eve. Nick, my mom, and I went to the hospital for the EVC procedure to try and turn baby girl from breech into the correct position. After waiting in the hospital bed for the doctor to arrive, we had one final ultrasound to make sure the procedure was still needed. To our great surprise, Baby Girl had turned direction sometime between Friday and yesterday. She is head down, ready to go- making the EVC and a potential planned c-section and everything else unnecessary. 
I know we had a lot people praying for this result along with us and I'm so happy for this small miracle. We had a crazy Christmas Eve with some serious car trouble, and most of the day did not go as planned. Last night, Nick and I sat on the ground in front of the Christmas tree assembling Hayden's gift. We had a fire lit in the fireplace, Love Actually on in the background, and we were sharing the plate of Santa's cookies. It was the first calm moment we had experienced the entire day. Right then, I felt an overwhelming sense of peace and joy and was finally able to process what a gift we had been given.
Merry Christmas, everyone! I hope you have a peaceful and joy-filled day with your loved ones. Thank you again for all your thoughts and prayers over the last few days.
