this baby is a daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece, cousin, and soon to be friend to many. she is PERFECT and i get the pleasure of calling her my niece. this whole day was crazy from the time i woke up. my weekend had not gone as planned and spent a little time in the er. with that being said the next few days were crazy trying to figure out why i was having symptoms of my retina detaching. not wanting to be blind my priority was getting into the retina specialist ASAP. of course it would be at the same time as the birth. i knew the day and time of the birth being a c-section. the odds were in my favor. i had been waiting to do this birth since i knew my sister was pregnant. just. my. luck. my sister TOTALLY understood which i was so grateful for but that did not change the fact that i was somewhere i did not want to be. i was able to be there before the surgery and way too long after she came but i was there. the gender was a surprise (something i could never do) and i was CERTAIN it was a boy…i was VERY wrong good thing though, i could not imagine any other little baby to have in the family. welcome to this world Fin so excited to watch you grow and hopefully photograph it along the way. i love you.
