We have found ourselves waiting alot today so we did the only thing you can do-made Gumbo,had all the kids and Mom over played games,watched the weather channel and followed Gabe's Blog about Kalleigh- http://babyarrives.blogspot.com/.
I fell asleep around midnight and she didn't make her appearance until 2 am or so. I am trying to post a picture here but can't for some reason-so go check out the blog to see her-she is beautiful!!!!
Poor Kim had a rough go of it- ended up with a c-section after 12-14 hours of tormenting labor. The baby just wouldn't move down . Please pray for her- she must be worn out today.
I am so glad Gabe did the blog- well ,at first I wasn't because I just sat and cried- I wanted to be there so badly. Then as the night wore on it was comforting to be able to watch as things progressed-moment by moment.
It was kinda like being in the hallway-except I couldn't snuggle with my bigger babies any. That is the hardest part-and those of you here now know why I don't talk much about missing them - my heart nearly breaks if I allow myself to think or talk about it much. So I happily exist in my own little world of denial.
There the truth is out-I am a crybaby about missing my kids and grandkids. Talking about it doesn't help and so I clam up and talk about everything else.
Speaking of everything else-how about this storm IKE??? Lots of us are staying this time-there should be some stories to tell - once we get past it!! Keep your cameras charged and ready- ya never know what kind of stuff we'll be watching-likely in horror - so keep em handy!!!!
I'll check in later today with some baby pics if I can figure out how to get em to post.
