... and we didn't anticipate our sweet baby girl being born in our garage (yes, you read that right!), but that's exactly what happened this past Friday night!
Within minutes we were dressed and walking through the house to the garage, figuring we'd wait in the car until his folks arrived (they live five minutes away so the wait wouldn't be long). But by the time we were in the garage and Hubby had pulled the car out to make it easier for me to get in, I was feeling the need to push and I knew we wouldn’t make it in time. So we called 911 and the operator coached Hubby through the delivery. His parents arrived just in time to lend a hand and watch him catch the baby (yes, on the floor of the garage... Hubby's dad quickly gathered up and put down towels and blankets before she arrived), and the paramedics arrived just a few minutes after that. They whisked us off to the nearest hospital in the ambulance and the rest is history!
I hope you enjoyed our dramatic baby story! I've never met anyone else whose labor and delivery took less than 30 minutes total. It's pretty surreal.
Normally I don't post photos of my babies' faces, but I couldn't resist one little newborn shot taken just before we were released from the hospital to go home.
