Waitin for him...

Hey everyone, this is Mike and I am currently sitting in a very comfortable chair in Mountain View Hospital. Hillary is dilated to a 6 and has just had an epidural. I just wanted to write so I could remember what this time was like. Hill has been in labor since about 2 am yesterday and didn't really get to the 5-1-1 until around 8:30 tonight. We walked through the I.F. walmart, we walked the mall about 4 times and here we are. I can't really explain what I am thinking right now. It's a lot like when I left on my mission. I realized something very big was happening, but I really didn't grasp the full meaning of the thing until I was boarding the plane and saying goodbye. It is also much like the day before I married Hill. It just seemed to good to be true. Both were great expiriences and looking back they lead to a great time of learning and growth. I'm thinking this is going to be the same. So, without further adieu.....world and family Hill and I are about to be parents. And that's about the most Godlike expireance you can have in this life.
