Memorable Moments 2009...#2

Being with my sister as she went through labor and gave birth. I don't care what people say...yea or nay....it was amazing!

It was really tough to be there while she was in intense pain and there was nothing I could do...I tried rubbing her back because she told me to and then smacked me away...haha! I tried to offer a bit of assistance through my words...don't know exactly how much help I was. I am guessing none at all. It was a loooooong and a very exhausting day...even for just me watching!!!

BUT...when the end result came out (after HOURS of pushing) it was so thrilling and so amazing and it took my breath away! It was just so neat to be there to see Atrion enter the world. (yes, his name is different, most likely you have not heard it before, it worked perfect for them, so get over it;)

I am glad I was able to be there and have loved seeing Atrion grow and change. He is a sweet boy. It was definitely one of the highlights of my year!

Oh I'm so glad Atrion and I are a memorable event! :) Sorry I slapped you away, I have no recollection of that.

What a neat and special experience. I'm sure your sister appreciated it immensely- especially the time afterwards where you got up during the night to help your new nephew. What a great sister you are!!!

I think the name Atrion is a perfect name! It just goes so well with there little family! And that really would be amazing. There isn't really any other place or time that you can feel so close to heaven and when you see that, you just can't deny that God has made such and amazing thing for us. I know that sounds cheesy but it is so true. And you are such a great sister! And funny that Casey slapped you!

Thats pretty cool. I've never really thought about going in with my sis...hum. I would though, if she invited me. It would be kind of neat to see someone else give birth.
