Worth the wait...

Monday afternoon was filled with a lot of excitement, a little bit of silly and a full waiting room. It's been six years since we've all sat around waiting for a baby to arrive and that baby is my baby. Monday was filled with differences but chalked full of the comfort of similarities, too. 


Those big babies wanted to hear about their stories - who was in the waiting room for them, how long they took to come out, who cried the most, who held them first, who cried at their arrival. 


And we reminded them that even though that are big kids now, there is still plenty of space for them right in our laps (or they were just being silly and recreating a picture).





We were all trying to fill the space of waiting... 





and waiting... 


and waiting...






and waiting. We let the kids stay until 8:45 and finally sent them home for some sleep. They were as thrilled about this as you can imagine. The new hospital policy doesn't allow any visitors for at least one hour after delivery to allow for plenty of uninterrupted bonding time for mom and baby.

Where was this when I had kids? My momma and Cathy Lyles were beating down the door a hot second post Radley. 



Gigi, Pops and I weren't going anywhere and finally we got to say hello to Keirstyn Avery Guercio

As you can imagine, she was worth the wait... 


and no one had waited longer than this guy.
