I sent mom a message about 4 days before sweet baby A came into the world and it said, “Please don’t go into labor for 24 hours! I’m sick!” her reply, “Well this week just isn’t working out for anyone so I’ll just wait.” I had to laugh. Only this mom would take everything in such stride. I have known her since we were teenagers but we only reconnected recently due to Facebook. I was beyond excited when she contacted me about photographing the birth of her third child!
I did almost miss it! I made myself take a nap after mom texted that things were going to happen sometime soon. I usually hand off my phone to Mr.M because I’m not always the best at waking up to things… like the alarm clock. Well, I fell asleep before I could and I rolled on top of the phone! I woke up at 4 am in a panic. Mom said she was headed to the hospital 4 hours ago! I texted right away and she was 9cm already! I am not even sure what clothes I put on that morning and can only say for sure that I brushed my teeth!
It was a whirlwind and after mom being up all night we took a short break to let mom and and came back together when Big Sister and Big Brother came up to meet baby A. There is just something about the way a siblings gets SO nervous, excited and sometimes could careless that I just LOVE!
Thanks mom and dad for having me at the birth of baby A! I can’t wait to show you the full slideshow!
