Me and Meredith discussing everything that went on in the delivery room....we are SUCH sisters! I don't know what I would do without having her loving heart around!
AWWWWW..... He kept saying..." I just love the way she smells!!"
We were SO excited to get the phone call on Saturday afternoon that Meredith was going into labor! The girl had been sitting at home all morning kind of waiting her contractions out!! By the time she decided to go to the hospital...she was already dialated to a SIX! We had gone to buy wood floors for our house and we literally left our cart and ran out of the store! We had to haul butt and get home to pack our stuff upfor the night! It took us about 4 hours to get to the hospital. Meredith ended up having her about an hour before we got there! Did I mention that Mere had her ALL NATURAL!?! She was planning on having the epidural but ended up waiting too long! She is SOOOOOOO proud of herself though for going without! We were sad that we weren't there when it happened...but we are so happy that she is healthy and finally HERE!
She was also a big surprise because Meredith and Christian didn't want to find out if the baby was going to be a boy or a girl! So, everyone was anticipating the birth THAT much more! We could not possibly love her anymore and we cannot wait to watch her grow up before our eyes! I cant wait to see her again in about a month! Casey will sadly have to wait until December to see her again!
By the way...if you are looking for a REALLY super sweet gift to give someone that is having a baby, buy this! I found it about a week before Blair Elizabeth came along and EVERYONE was gushing over how sweet this book was! I found it at Barnes and Noble!
The whole way home, we kept talking about having kids and all of that! It is so fun to think about it all and we WOULD like to have kids relatively close to their kids' ages. Blair is the first and I bet they end up having 3 or 4 kids. Casey and I never really had cousins that we were close in age with that we were close to! We want that for our kids...but I still think it will be a couple of years before we start thinking about jumping over THAT hurdle!
