I'm an Auntie!!

My younger sister had her first baby on Wednesday, March 10th at 8:12PM. I was allowed to stay in the room and it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life.
He weighed 8lbs 7oz and was 21.5in long. Things got a little hairy with both Mom and baby right after the delivery. Oliver had the cord around his neck and had fluid in his lungs which they had to work to get out. He is doing fine now though. My poor sister started bleeding really bad and they had trouble stopping it after the placenta finally came out. But she is doing fine now also - thank God!
My sister was amazing - totally med and intervention free delivery so I was impressed! She did it!
Lots of pictures will follow soon but I am in love with my nephew. He is the first one in the family so it's very exciting. He's going to be one spoiled boy!


  1. Wow, that is so amazing, what a strong woman!! Also I LOVE the name Oliver!!!

  2. Glad everything turned out fine! Congrats :D
