This weekend, I had the distinct honor of being one of the first to meet my new baby cousin. Knowing that my cousin was about to "pop" any minute, we have been on babywatch since after Thanksgiving...even though she wasn't due until this coming Friday.

I got the call while I was at brunch on Sunday morning. Cousin was in labor, there was still some time. Knowing labor can sometimes take a while, I got a few things done before heading to the hospital. On my way down, I got another call that things were moving quickly, and I stepped on it! Little did I know, we still had a few hours to wait!

After what seemed like forever to us waiting, and I am sure to the mom & dad-to-be, my brother and cousin snuck down the hall to have a peek. They came running back, having seen the new daddy holding the brand new baby! Soon after, my cousin headed down the hall to gather us all in to meet the newest member of our family.

It was quite a special day!

Congratulations! It is a miracle every time! It sounds "weird" to me though that all of you were sitting there waiting. That does not happen in Suecia. BIG HUGS GIRL!
