Hawaii Day 6: Baby G's Arrival

As I told you in yesterday's post, Lou's water had finally broke and we headed to the hospital. It was about 9 pm when we arrived at the hospital on Tuesday night. They took us back to a triage room where they had to confirm that her water had indeed broke and then they would admit her. 

Well I won't get into all the details but our first hour there was really scary. They confirmed that her water broke and started doing all the stuff they needed to do to admit her. Well the IV part didn't go so well and at one point they were getting ready to wheel her back to the OR for an emergency c section. But thankfully they ended up not having to do that and everything was fine and the eventually moved her to her own room. 

After what seemed like a really long night, a few episodes of Firefly and a showing of Wayne's World, Baby G finally made her debut into the world. She was born on September 25th and weighed in at 6 lbs and 12 oz! 

I of course cried as soon as she was born. That is my MO after all. I always cry. But she is absolutely beautiful and looks just like Lou, which I absolutely love! Now I am just waiting for that red hair to start showing up more :)

I am so incredibly excited for my best friend and her Husband. I watched her become a Mom in an instance. And for something that you would think would take some time getting used to seeing, seemed so natural. You could see the love in her face as she stared down at this beautiful baby girl and in that second you could instantly see that she went from being your best friend to being your best friend that is now a Mom. It didn't seem like anything had changed at all. Things just seemed like they were right and it felt as if everything was supposed to be this way. And I loved that feeling. 

Lou, I am so incredibly proud of you. You did such an amazing job during this entire pregnancy and especially during labor. I have always had a tremendous amount of respect for you, but seeing you become a Mom made me have so much more respect for you. You are Wonder Woman and I am so blessed to call you my best friend. And I am already so in love with your little girl. I can't wait to watch you guys grow together as a family. And I can't wait to see that red hair come in! I love you guys so much and I am thankful that you let me be apart of such a special moment in your life. From the bottom of my heart, thank you!



  1. I love you to! Thanks for helping me through labor but most of all for being my best friend!
