Ezra Douglas Naugler was born at home into his fathers arms at 9:35 pm on April 4th 2010, Easter Sunday, under the watchful eye of all 7 of his siblings.
After being 3 days past my edd and having measly contractions for those 3 days I woke up Sunday morning a bit more sore than I had wanted to be. I made the kids Easter Breakfast
Then we got ready to watch General Conference at 12
At 6 pm Joe gave me a blessing.At 7pm my water broke.. This has only happened before with Jacob. The rest broke in the final stages. I was agitated because after that the contractions died down and nothing was really happening. At 7:30 the contractions hit me like a brick wall.. 5-6 min apart and coming on strong. I took a quick shower and changed.
At about 8pm I stopped timing. It was one right after another I got in the tub. Joe and the kids all followed in. Urijah was especially fascinated, but they all were paying close attention.
I stayed in the tub till probably about 9:25 when I went to the bed. I wanted to birth in the tub but it was too tight of quarters for us to do. I layed on the bed and the head crowned.. Jacob took such great photos.. The kids were so excited. With Conference, Easter and Ezra's arrival I couldn't imagine a more spiritually uplifting day.
