This morning, around 4:30 AM, we welcomed a new life into our family. My sister called us last night around 6:15 to tell us that her water broke and she was waiting for her husband to come home and take her to the hospital. My mom, dad, and I met them there and began the long night of waiting. I've gotta say, my sis is tough! When contractions came, she simply screwed up her face a bit. When she got her epidural (which she later said was very painful...much more so than her other two) all she did was let out a small gasp or two. She did great. My dad eventually took my nephew home and put him to bed, but my mom and I stayed all night waiting to meet our new little girl. I feel asleep a few times in the hospital room during the wait (actually, so did my sis and her husband!) and by the time she was ready to start pushing I was exhausted. However, it was all worth it to be able to be there to meet my niece as soon as she arrived.
8lbs, 20 inches of beautiful perfection! God is amazing!
