So my trip started off with a phone call. "Well, no need to rush, but you might want to start making your way down here," my brother-in-law stated. Oh so much excitement from those words!
So my younger sister and I began our journey down to Anderson, Indiana to be at the birth of my niece - the first grandchild on my side of the family. We didn't exactly know what to expect, but we were SO excited to meet this little girl that had been 9 months in the making.
It started off meeting Josh (my brother-in-law) at the hospital and seeing Audrey (my sister and new mom). AFter visiting a while, we went to their house to get some shut eye and kept our phones on, just in case - although it didn't seem like the baby was going to arrive until later the next day.
And later the next day it was. Around 7pm after much labor and over 3 hours of pushing, the Weiger family welcomed Emma Mattingly Weiger into their arms. It was so wonderful to spend the next few days with them, basking in the newness of life. She was so precious and did really well for having a photo shoot on her second day of life :) Gotta get it in while you can, you know?
So I'll let the pictures do the rest of the talking. First a few of the baby bump and then I'll show you my adorable niece, EMMA!
Story-time with Dad.
And now, it's baby time!
In the waiting room the next day... Did I mention it was bright and early?
And then she was here! Proud Dad.
They are so in love...
And when baby sleeps. Mom and dad sleep too.
And then it was time to go home!
Welcome to the world Emma. We are so glad you are here and couldn't be more excited for what God will do in your life! Love you lots already - Love, Aunt Elise.
