Happy Birth Day Baby Elizabeth!
Today is the day!
Check in at 5:30 a.m., water broke at 6:45 and pitocin started at 7:15. What a wild ride!
Our little gift for all those who will care for us over the next few days. I love my job and the ease of these great little chocolates…address labels on chocolate bars. It really does make all the difference. However, the nurses are more ga-ga over the pens! I’m thrilled to return the favors!
You are a rock star baby girl arriving 3 1/2 hours after we arrived.
We are happy to introduce you to Elizabeth Edna Boster who arrived this morning (much faster than anyone predicted, beating even my hopes by 2 hours), February 20th, at 10:19 a.m. weighing 8 lbs. 4 oz. and measuring 21″ long. She beats Mikey’s weight by a full pound.
My L&D nurse was truly fantastic. She heard my desires for a natural delivery, encouraged me along the way, always sincere about the expectations but quick to provide the incentive to continue. Despite this being our 4th induction, I learned so many great things from her today. She was truly a Godsend today. Thank you to all my friends who prayed specifically for my nurses today. Your prayers were heard and I’m forever grateful! This baby was delivered without any meds in right at 3 1/2 hours! Holy cow!!!
We are indeed a family of six now!
Funny how exciting our view is to the kids.
And a very sincere thank you to our adopted family who is lovingly caring for the kids today and tonight. We love you Satrianos.
And for the best honor of the night….
In attempt to remain friends, I opted not to post the photo of Loly crying as the news continued to sink in. We love you guys. Thank you for always being there for us, for loving us, and for being so present in our day-to-day happenings. We are honored our children (not just the two youngest girls) have such incredible role models in this journey of life. Thank you!! We love you and the Godsisters too!
Happy Birthday Ellie. I hear you squeaking and know it’s time to eat. You are a love already.
