My brother Brian called last night to see if Phil or I could go over to his house while he took his wife to the hospital to have their third baby!! I love phone calls telling me that a baby is coming - it's so exciting and awesome.
But I discovered something not so exciting and awesome - that I can NOT sleep well without Phil at home. I tossed and turned for a couple hours and then woke up to every little noise.
At 3 am, I heard my bedroom door squeak open and was terrified ~ but it was only Andrew being "scared of the night". And since I was also "scared of the night", I told him to sleep in the bed with me. And we both slept well for the next 3 hours until the other kids started getting up.
I would normally be cranky and miserable from this lack of sleep, but I can't stop being happy because baby Clare was born last night!! I am an Aunt again for the 19th time :)
She is the baby sister to two brothers: Brogan, almost 4 and PJ, one. I know what it's like to have a girl after you have a couple boys, and I am so excited for my sister-in-law!!! I'll post a picture when I get one.
Hope you all are having just as exciting days!
