I am thrilled to be an auntie again today. My little sister, Heather, delivered a healthy baby girl this morning.
I was so proud of my sister. She rocked it. She started having contractions yesterday afternoon that took her to the hospital last night. She was only 1 cm dilated and 70% effaced so they sent her home. By 2 am this morning the contractions got much worse and closer together so they headed back to the hospital. Within 6 hours she was at 8 cm and by 11:49 this morning, Lily Jane, made her debut. I would say that is pretty fast for your first baby.
I was so glad I got to be in the delivery room with her. In fact all of my sisters and my mom and Heather's husband, of course, were in the room. Dr. T, who I adore, he's also my OB, was awesome. He was so good with my sister encouraging her every step of the way. After they got Lily cleaned up, he told everyone to gather around and hold hands and he prayed over Lily. How cool is that? He prayed that she would come to know the Lord at an early age and that she would love God. I can't wait for him to pray over our child one day.
Heather sent me this picture just a bit ago. Lily had just had her bath and now she is already for bed. She is just too cute. I can't wait to hold her. The girls are so excited to have a new cousin. That's all they talk about. Sydney keeps saying how she is going to play with her when she sees her. She kept asking if Lily can have a snack bar to eat. I had to explain to her that she's only allowed milk right now. I snuck them into the room today so they could see her, but the nurse told me they weren't allowed in the room on the Labor & Delivery floor, so we had to leave. They should be coming home on Wednesday so we'll get to love on her then.
Welcome to the world Lily Jane. I love you so much and I am proud to be your Auntie KK.
