|Isn't he cute?|
Yesterday at about 5:00, I called my sister, Stephanie, just to see what was going on. She had been in a state of labor-limbo* with her pregnancy for about two months. She happened to be in the car on the way to the hospital (for the second time in the past few weeks) to see if these contractions were actually for real. It turns out they were! Her beautiful baby boy was born less than three hours later.
|I love him already.|
*Seriously, Steph has very unusual pregnancies and births. She has been put on bed rest at about 28 weeks with her last two pregnancies because she has so many contractions. Then over the course of 10 weeks, she slowly goes through labor. When she thinks her contractions feel just a little bit more intense, she goes to the hospital, where she hangs out happily with painless contractions until she suddenly pushes out a baby. I envy her labors, but not her months of bed rest and worry over having a premature baby, so I guess it's a trade-off, right?
