They had decided to induce my sister-in-law a week early for reasons I don't really know. I knew they were going to induce her at 6 a.m. CST this morning. I was still awake when it began, and I really considered not going to bed. But I knew I couldn't be there for the birth, and it would be hours before he was born. So I went to bed, and when I woke up I had tons of text messages and a new nephew. My youngest niece Kayla had literally given me a play by play, "Her water broke!" "She is 7 cm dilated!" and finally I got this one.

I wanted a picture of the text, because really that is the best text message ever. I was really young when my nieces were born, so this is the first birth that I can vividly remember. I'm so blessed. I'm kind of bummed though, I can't see him until at least Thanksgiving
365 days ago (give or take):
Adam didn't want to jump up and hurt the computer. So he is bellowing loudly at me, "Get up and turn it down, get up and turn it down!" But of course I’m cowering under the covers and ignoring him.
Adam saves me from another disaster.


  1. Absolutley adorable! Congrats Auntie!

  2. Awww I remember that feeling, had that with both my niece and nephew. They live in Oregon and I couldn't get home to be there for their births. I remember frantically checking my phone every hour for their arrivals. Btw, Caden looks like he's raising his hands in a raise the roof pose. Go Caden, it's your birth date go Caden!
