My sister went into labor at about 4:30 PM yesterday and about an hour and a half later, a healthy baby boy was born. My sister is the toughest lady I know, and this was her 3rd natural delivery, and her second home birth. What a rock star! As for me and my house, we serve the epidural, but I have mad respect for anyone who can endure the pain of childbirth.
Also, you may remember that the name 'Andrew' was on Jonathan and I's short list for Forest. We both loved the name and up until I knew my sister was considering it for her baby boy, we had it reserved for the middle spot for Forest. I am so super glad that they chose a name that I love oh so much to bestow upon my newest nephew. I can't wait to meet baby Andrew!!
|Oh, my heart melts to think of what a good big brother Lucas will be!|
I am so thankful that my hubby stepped up to the plate yesterday so that I was able to retreat and get a few cat-naps of my own. And thanks to my friend Tekara, we had a delicious meal of BBQ Pulled Pork sandwiches so the day was somewhat salvaged.
I hope your day is full of family, friends, food and gratitude. Happy Thanksgiving everybody!
