We've been waiting for this little bundle to finally come for weeks now, but she just took her sweet little time. Julie's water finally broke Saturday morning and around 2 Sterling called me to see if I wanted to come hang out and watch a movie with them at the hospital. I had to wait for something to come out of the oven and as I was leaving he called again to see if I was on my way. She had dilated to a 9 and delivery was in the near future. As I walked into the hospital room I was accosted by a nurse asking who I was and when Sterling told her I could come in, I wasn't quite prepared for my sister to be in between contractions.
Her nurses were awesome. Seriously the one was the best cheerleader ever. I felt like I could deliver a baby. Coral's heart rate kept dropping and they were afraid the umbilical chord was around her neck so the doctor busted out the forceps and just like that there was a baby. They brought in the respiratory team and she ended up in the NICU for a bit to help her lungs out, but other than that she was perfect and chubby. 8 lbs 5 oz. What a little fatty. But she's cute as anything and I'm so glad she's here.
