New Blessing

I was woken very early Sunday morning to the phone ringing and my sister telling me she was having the baby. The baby the doctor had been telling her could be born "anytime now" since before Christmas. Well baby was due January 9...and here she came on January 11. I am so thankful that she waited for me to be home from New York so I could be around for her birth. Well, I actually didn't make it to Edm for her birth (and Amanda ended up having a C-Section) but I met her a few hours after she was born and was able to spend most of the day with my sister, husband and new little niece hanging out in her hosptial room. What a blessing...so many blessings that so many people take for granted...even just being able to have your baby in your hospital room after the birth...that amazed me...I have never had that...the boys were all taken away and stayed in the NICU for weeks before they could come home. I had no idea what that could be like. I am thankful I was able to experience that. I even got to change a meconium filled diaper (never done that before) and dress her up a little (at my sisters request of course!)

Oh ya...here is the goods: Name: Shaelyn Brinaye (they used my suggestion of Brinaye for a middle name so I feel special being involved in that) Date of Birth: January 11, 2009 Time of Birth: 7:04am Weight: 7 lbs. 7 oz. Length: 19 inches

I didn't know your boys had complicated births - you'll have to fill me in one day.

Glad you're back! See ya tomorrow.
