And the waiting is over...

Wow, what an emotional day!

It all started when I got a rather hurried call at 4:37 a.m. this morning, picked up pace at 9:30 a.m., climaxed at 11:33 a.m. and is now nearly over as I glance longingly at my bed, rumpled and certainly unmade. I have witnessed, first-hand, the fantastic act of birth for the first time almost three years ago with my cousin and her first baby girl. I cannot believe it has almost been three years, time seems to flow easily through my fingers.

I was no less fascinated today, than I was then. My baby sister had her first baby. To be honest, I believe it will be first of many. She's always been more than blessed with an innate sixth sense when dealing with children, babies especially. Through two grueling hours of pushing, she worked, sweated, and moaned like a true Cole to bring little baby bean into this world; all 8 pounds, 21 inches of him. I'm not sure I've ever felt more proud, or more privileged, to be able to witness B enter our lives and quietly settle within our hearts. Thank you so much Tawna and Charlie for letting me share this experience with you. Love you both. Congratulations.
