I feel really bad that i'm posting a blog about something else before I post about my trip! Things have just been so busy and this news is so exciting that I had to post it now! :)
One of my best friends, Jill and her husband Andy, welcomed their second child into this world on Sunday March 16, 2008 at 1:16am! What an eventful weekend it was! I arrived home from our amazing trip on Monday evening and had talked to Jill. She said she had been having contractions but she was suppose to be on bed rest and see where things went! As the week progressed she seemed to know that someting was going on.
On Friday night they called me and asked me if I would stay the night in case they had to get up in the middle of the night and go to the hospital. They didn't want to disrupt their 2 year old daughter while she was sleeping. Their 2 year old daughter, Catelyn Clare, is my godchild! So of course I headed over to their place and when I got their Jill was having some pretty good contractions but she still wasn't sure if she should go to the hospital. So she decided the just go to bed and get a good nights sleep. At approximately 6:00am I heard footsteps and her husband knocking on the door to the room I was sleeping in. He said that he water broke and they would be leaving for the hospital shortly. I ran up to see her and for Jill's sake I won't share that story! :) So they left for the hospital and I was graced by the precence of a 2 year old for a day and a half. She taught me so many things and it was a great bonding time for the two of us! Throughout the day we receieved updates from Andy and even Jill at one point. The progress was slow and her labor was long but after 20 some hours of labor she deleivered a healthy baby boy named Connor Pierce weighing in at 6lbs 15oz and is 18 1/2" long! He is adorable! Here are a few pictures from the hospital!
I cannot wait to get pictures of both Catelyn and Connor together! What a special bond they will have as siblings! She will teach him so many exciting things! As soon as they are home and settled I will be over to see them and will defintely do a post after that! (and i promise to try and get a post up about vacation soon too)
