Guess who decided to come and meet us Monday night? Little Miss Natalie!!! Sarah went in for a doctor’s appointment Monday morning and ended up being admitted to the hospital. Natalie made her entrance at 11:50 pm Monday night.
Sarah spent most of the day walking the halls and telling people not to come to the hospital. I didn’t get a single thing done all that day because I was so anxious to hear what was going on. Around 5:30 people couldn’t stay away any longer and we started to gather in the waiting room.
As the night began to get later our group trickled down to just 4 of us (it really was a late night/early morning!) – Sarah’s mom, Jon’s parents, and me. We talked and talked until we could think of nothing left to say except, ‘when is she coming?!’. Finally we got word at 11:55 that Natalie had been born in the form of a sweet photo of Sarah and Natalie looking happy & healthy. Nearly as soon as we received the picture the waiting room got quiet as we were all texting friends and family the news and studying the picture to decide if her hair really was blonde (it is), how happy Sarah looked (very), and every thing else we could decipher from our lone clue to this new life.
We waited another 2 hours before being able to see Natalie but once we got back there I think we all got a second wind as we anxiously passed her around and examined her hands, feet, ears, and hair. Sarah and Jon were wide awake and doing well as they showed off their new pride and joy.
Welcome to parenthood Sarah and Jon! We are all SO happy for you. Natalie is such a sweet little baby already. We are so excited to watch her grow and see what personality develops. Little Miss YOU ARE SO LOVED! Auntie can’t wait to squeeze & love on you again!
Since Natalie decided to make her debut this week we won’t be back to the blog until next week. But expect more picture of this little gal soon!
