Amy got word Wednesday evening she was going to be induced on Friday and wanted me by her side if at all possible, so we quickly made decisions that devastated Olivia (I couldn't justify her missing like 10 days of school) and just Haven and I got in the car by 7:30 that evening to head part way there and stay in Little Rock with our cousins. We made it there by 1am with Haven crying literally 95% of the time. I was driving on pure adrenaline. Then she didn't sleep until 4 am at their house, I was mortified, but didn't care because I was going to see my niece be born! Then I got a text at 6:30 am letting me know my niece came on her own in the middle of the night during a super speedy labor and both my sis and baby were doing well!
I thought it was a joke.
It was not.
I was very excited still to meet her, but very bummed at the same time that somehow both my nieces came while I was on my way there in Arkansas. My only solace was that even if we'd driven straight though I wouldn't have made it in time. We drove the rest of the way there that morning...with much less crying than the night before...hmm wonder why you were tired Haven??? And went straight to the hospital to meet my new niece!!
Meet Ellie Rose.
Haven loooooved holding her. But she did let me hold her too!
I didn't even dress my kid that day.
All that hair! And those lips!Sweetie!
