Her water broke around five, and she delivered that little bugger around twelve fifty on Tuesday, February 10, 2009! That is AWESOME work for a first time mama! I can't believe I'm not down there with them, but my mom is staying in the hospital with her, and then she's going to my mom's house in Biloxi for a few weeks to get settled before she heads back to Hattiesburg with her son. How exciting to say, her son! We are looking at the most reasonable time to go visit, but I might just have to throw reason to the wind so I can get my hands on my nephew!
Arika is doing very well, she's very glad she didn't end up with a C-Section (and her big sister is so jealous- I want to experience it too!!!) and my mom is super excited to be such a hands on Grandma. I know it's hard for her to be so far from my kids and from Mia, so I'm glad this is happening for her now. We continue to appreciate all your prayers!
