What My Sleepy Self Did Today...

I guess I didn't really do anything. My sister had the baby! She went in at 6AM to have her labor induced. A horrible photoessay type thing follows.

This is me harassing my sister on my lunch break. She's dilated 3-4 centimeters.

Sis, cursing me, but cheerful.

With her nurse, Rachel.

With her fiance.

And the family is here:
One of the sexy Godmommies arrives!



Paternal Uncle Chris

Paternal Aunt Kayla

Paternal Aunt Adriana with Kayla's baby. He's a juicy, sweet little man!

Paternal grandmama.

Paternal Grandpapa.

Dilation proceeds slowly. When I get back around three, she's still about 4cm so I decide to take a nap.

The Kids arrive:

Shortly after 5pm, she'd only dilated 5cm so her doctor decides to perform a C-Section.
I can tell she is worried so I say silly little stuff.

Dad suited up.

Mama wants us to hold hand hands and pray around my sister.

8lbs, 19.5 inches

Swaddled up in daddy's arms

Getting fussy in the nursery.

Testing the pacifier.

Coti arrives.

Coti and Quanta.

Sis sleeping off the drugs.

You know there's more to come, right?
