My sister, Sarah, had a baby last week. Her husband, Nathan, is the cutest Dad ever.
Sarah was in labor for 29 hours.
During this time we got off work, arranged a ride with my mom to Utah, drove to Utah, stayed up waiting to hear that the baby made it, fell asleep, had nightmares that something was wrong. (In my nightmares their baby looked exactly like Molly and she wasn't going to make it. It was a horrible dream) then we woke up and had breakfast and THEN we got word that a perfect little girl had made it safely to the outside world. I breathed a sigh of relief and cried some tears of happiness and hope.
My sister is a mom! I'm so happy, excited and in love.
It took them a few days to name her, but they eventually decided she was meant to be Shelby Lin.
Lin is the middle name of her Paternal Grandmother, who is a beautiful angel. In fact, I bet Molly, Kellen, and Mary Lin were all there for Shelby's arrival. :) :)
She has the same hair as Molly and Kellen, a beautiful strawberry blonde. She reminded me so much of my babies but instead of feeling sad to remember that I lost mine, I felt SO HAPPY that Shelby gets to stay with our family.
I'm a proud Aunt again! Welcome Shelby
