    I'm so excited, and everyone is tired of talking on the phone with everyone else, so I have to post to let out my excitement! My SIL is just now getting her epidural, she's getting a c-section very soon! She's having a baby girl, but I don't think they decided on a name yet, lol. She was due on the 28th, so she's 20 days early. She didn't want me to show her up apparantly, lol, since Tripp was born 22 days early. We were exactly 24 days apart in our due dates, so it's definately interesting that we were that close in due dates, and that close in being early. She's getting a c-section because the baby is too big, which, I had the feeling would happen, she's a very petite gal, and she was born at 8lbs and something and my brother was a 9lber. We're waiting until 11 to leave, to give them time to be together and such, and, I made sure to ask permission first, because our first was born at almost 11pm, so I KNOW how tired you are, though she wasn't in labor for 52.5 hours like I was, but, still, it's exhausting. Anyways, *SQUEEE* I can't wait to see the baybeh! Know I know how everyone else felt when I went into labor, lol. At least she's not making everyone wait two days for the baby though, lmao. Hubby called in, told them he'd be in late so that he could watch the boys (thank god, he actually OFFERED to do it!) He told them that my sister was in surgery, but didn't say what for, I hope he doesn't get in trouble, but, I REEEAAALLLY want to be there, and, god forbid anything were to happen, I wouldn't forgive myself for not being there. Anyways, ten more minutes... COME ON ELEVEN O'CLOCK!!!

    Squeeellll! So exciting - let us know the details when you get back. I would love to be a "birth coach" in the summer when I am off. I love the whole baby delivery thing - from the other end!

    Best wishes for sis, baby and all the family!

    TWOOOOO MORE MINUTES!!! I'm just waiting on my sister to finish watching her show, then we're meeting up over there! Yes, she's watching a show before heading over! I can hardly contain myself, but, Deek (our brother) said to not rush, since it was going to be a little while, so we figured we'd wait until 11. I just found out half an hour ago, so, I'm not sure how anyone else contained themselves (though my mother is already there, but she took time to get a shower and primped up before going over, the crazy lady, lol). I figure, I got a shower only a few hours ago, so I won't stink or anything, and everyone will be too busy with the new family to check to see if I have nice clothes on or run-around-the-house clothes on, lol.

    Well, I need to correct some information. I forget who told me the baby was too big, but I think it was more theory than fact, lol. The baby came out at 6lbs 7oz, but I can't remember the exact time. I'm hoping to go visit again today, we didn't get to see them for very long last night, because of recovery from the c-section and it was sooo late. I have to call to see if she's up for more visits, or I may wait, since she'll be stuck there for 3-4 days. Poor gal, she looked beat last night, and I doubt she'll feel any better in the next few days. But, the baby was precious, and dad's happy and excited. The only complaint he had was that nothing was ready! They were about to pack the hospital bag, and were shopping earlier that day for stuff to put in the bag, but never finished. The baby room isn't ready either, it was painted, but nothing is put together or set up, just kind of shoved into the room, lol.
