Meet Elise

My Facebook and Instagram followers probably know this but for my blog only followers…I had a baby!  And shame on me, but I don’t think I ever mentioned even being pregnant on my blog.  Boy those 9 month really flew by =)  So here she is…my little Sweetie Pie, Elise.  Love her to pieces. I just want to eat her up all…the…time!

My labor this time was SO different from my first that I hardly knew I was in labor.  My first, I had back labor and it was so painful, so fast.  This time, I felt some mild pains during the day but nothing changed much as the day progressed.  Called L&D and they told me just relax, take a bath.  Didn’t sound like anything alarming.  Well this put my husband in jeopardy of missing the birth of his precious baby girl!  Call it denial, stubbornness, whatever but I swore up and down the whole day I was not in labor.  I assured him as I said goodbye to him at the door when he was leaving for work, I was not in labor.  About 30 minutes after he leaves and I get out of the bath. I text him. “I think I’m in labor!”  Started timing the contractions and they were three minutes apart..yikes.  My Mom had already been on her way to stay with me just in case and the second I opened the door, hunched over I said “let’s go!”  I called labor and delivery while my Mom was driving us there and they told me they had no room for me and I had to go to another hospital 45 minutes away putting my husband even farther from me!  I was crying at them and told them “NO WAY” could I make it there and the situation with my husband being in the city.  They called one more hospital and they too, were full, so they told me to come there.  By the time I got there I could barely walk.  They took me straight to a room that had opened up.  The hubs had clocked in for 5 minutes, got my text that it WAS time and he clocked right back out.  He got there in time and we had our baby!

The next day, I had my Mom bring The Bean to meet her baby sister.  It was truly one of the best moments of my life seeing her meet “her baby.”

We bought our girls some Big Sis and Lil Sis necklaces so they’d have something special to remember the first day they met.

I can’t wait to see the memories these two make together.
