On Friday – the 26th – I got a call from Xavier – my sister’s husband – saying – COME NOW! Wait. What?
We figured it out – and Samm was being induced – so I hopped in the car and drove 3 hours to NJ. The boys and Jared stayed at my parents – which worked out wonderfully.
Samm progressed very slowly. We waited. And waited. And waited.
I went back to their apartment Friday night and slept – waiting for a phone call. When I got to the hospital Saturday morning – it had been a long night – but at least Samm was able to sleep. Saturday moved slowly – and by evening – I went back to the apartment – got ready to watch Doctor Who and eat some pizza – and a text came in. Come now – they are prepping her for a c-section!
And then the cries. Those sweet baby cries!
Isn’t he GORGEOUS!
He weighed a little over 8 lbs. Such a sweetie!
BE STILL MY HEART!
Samm had a rough recovery immediately after her c-section. It was a few hours before she was able to hold little Jack.
He was born at 8:48 in the evening on December 27th.
I went back to the apartment and slept. I knew I would have to leave by noon the next day – so I made sure to come back and get lots of love in!
I am so thankful that I was able to be there! Jack – you are so loved! You have an incredible momma and such a sweet dadda to love you!
