I'm thrilled to announce that my big brother and his wife's first child entered the world April 12 at a whopping 8 lbs. 8 oz. and 22 in. long. She's a beauty and so very loved. She arrived after many hours of difficult labor and nearly earned herself a c-section before making her debut.
My dear friend Trisha finally had her baby as well at 42 weeks! They were expecting a boy and were pleasantly surprised to hear, "It's a Girl!" The still unnamed little one was born April 14 and is precious. She arrived just four short hours after her Mommy's water was broken and Mommy did it all without a bit of pain medication. How do Mother's do that?!
So, two long awaited babies have arrived healthy and happily with out any complications. Praise the Lord! Both Mom's were relieved to miss Friday the 13th as a birthday. I love birth stories and these make my upcoming labor seem more real than ever. Hopefully we can focus on getting prepared for our own little one's arrival now that his girlfriends have arrived.
Thought for the day: Remember the births of your own child/children and treasure those precious memories and the ones they've allowed you since their birth.
