I loved that I was able to share this experience with my mom and both of my sisters. (I was there when all three of Jen's kids were born, and she has been there for all of mine too. Since Emily no longer lives in Texas, she was so excited to be a part of the delivery. I called Em around 4 a.m. to let her know I was having contractions and she took all three of her kids to stay with Aunt Robin for the day, she also brought her breast pump to the hospital so she could have milk for her 4 month old, Olivia. She was so excited to be a part of the day and I was thrilled to have her there. I checked into the hospital around 6 a.m, my mom got there around 7 a.m. and Jen and Em arrived with bran muffins from Mimi's cafe around 8 a.m. ...so much fun!) Might I also add, I loved having an epidural, it makes giving birth so enjoyable.
I loved feeling so close to Adam as we anticipated the arrival of our new little one.
