Bitty Baby's Arrival (or: ...and the family expands...)

Funny how sometimes there's an exact moment that you know things are going to change. Obviously, this doesn't happen all of the time, but I did have one of these events occur this past Tuesday afternoon. I was at my Pregnant Lady appointment, and while the doctor was checking things out - my water broke! Clearly, things were set in motion and we were going to have a baby in our house pretty soon...! I got wheeled across the street to the hospital, called Hubby on the way, and had him grab the hospital bag.

Hubby called our family. My parents live 3 hours from us, so it was important that they knew to hit the road. When it was time for Bitty Baby to join the world, I had Hubby at my side in the wee hours of the morning on Wednesday. Our mothers were able to see her arrival as well - and her birthday is two days before my mom's, which I think is really cool.

Even though I got the epidural topped off, it wore off some right at the end. Oh yeah; that was fun. :P

But my goodness, seeing that little face.... It overshadowed all.

With the exception of Sweet Pea getting to hold her new baby sister for the first time. And being at home with our two beautiful girls in the beginning of a new chapter of life.
