It was amazing. I had to race an hour and half to try and get there in time. Amanda had invited me into the room a month ago and there was no way I was going to miss my little niece coming into this world. And WOW! It is so totally different watching a birth than when you are the one having the baby. I can't believe our bodies can do that quite frankly.
Caroline is perfect: 6 lbs. 1o oz. 20 inches long. Lots of dark hair. She'll get to wear bows pretty soon!
And yes, I still want more kids after watching. Just not for awhile yet! Amanda got an epideral. It was like we were all just hanging out. My kids came so fast I was just lucky that Shane didn't have to deliver Reece in the car! We just talked and joked around. Manda wasn't in any pain, just tired. I was pretty jealous. My first epideral didn't work and the second one wasn't even a possibility it happened so fast. If we do have another baby I am going to the hospital a week ahead of time just to get the epideral started! HA!
It was a really special gift for Manda to let me in there and I am so thankful that I got to be part of Caroline's life from the first second.
