just bean bags and H-O-R-S-E, not full on one-on-one. Calm down.

…before we headed out to watch the Super Bowl game and eat some hot wings.

About 3 in the morning on Monday, it was time.

Who loves her epidural?

MJ and his mom played hangman, using hospital words, while the Girl and I compared notes and texted all our peeps.

The Lil Prince texted us back to tell us he was happy his cousin was on the way…

Hurry, lil girl!!

Then, a short (depending on who you’re asking) 8 hours later, the Lil Princess made her arrival…


Mom and Dad did great! They are a good team. I’m honored that I got to help bring this little girl into the world. It was the most beautiful thing I have ever witnessed.


Then it was time to go home…




  Hey. You’re not my mom.








Stay tuned for the Lil Prince and Princess’s first play date!!
Nana may explode from the sheer happiness.

  9. This is the time that the Girl will really need her mom; when hormones are high, life is a sleepy blur and crying is the rule of the day.
    At least that was my experience.

  10. Pictures of pure joy! Congratulations to all.

  11. What a beautiful post. So happy for your family!

  12. I love that Ella has so many new cousins that have arrived in the past year! Between my new nephew, our great nephew and niece and my new little cousin on the way, there's a whole new generation to watch grow up!
