OH MY GOODNESS! My sister in law had her baby. Wow is she a trooper! Those doctors had her pushing for five hours yesterday! But her beautiful baby girl is here and healthy as can be.
Remember this is the baby that doctors thought they would have to take at 26 weeks because she had a parasitic twin taking her blood. (The twin was never a fully developed baby.)
Landrey Faith is 8 pounds! She clearly has the strength and tenacity of her mother Christy.
I saw her for the first time last night.
So cute! I won’t go into detail but let’s just say Christy had just about every thing thrown at her during delivery and yet nothing was bad enough to make her slow down!
I also got a preview of what my husband will be like when he meets our son (Great. I am now crying profusely in the news room)..anyway Landrey was crying when we got there. Jason picked her up and got her to stop crying in seconds!
He held her a long time..I’m telling you this boy was born to be a father! I never wanted kids until I met him! He’s also in full blown nesting mode. After we left the hospital, he asked me to tell him everything I wanted to get done so he could help me finish my list this weekend. I think I have little Landrey to thank for that. Reality hit Jason at the hospital. Our baby is probably going to be here in the next seven days!
I’m really surprised Skittles isn’t here already based on the contractions and pains I have had..but I’m fine. Tomorrow is my last day at work.
I just hope Skittles gives me a few days to get some regular sleep so I am ready for the big day.
I will keep you posted!
