I was all prepped and ready to do the Taylor House Century. We made it up to Flagstaff on Friday afternoon, enjoyed a nice lunch and got all settled into a nice nap. Then Ashley peeks out of the bathroom and says something like, “Um, honey? I think my water just broke.”
So off we go! And instead of a midwife-attended birth center birth at home in Phoenix, we ended up with an OB and nine or so nurses at a hospital ward in Flagstaff.
9 hours later William James Hooker was born.
