if you followed my old blog at all, you recognize these sweet girls.
i nannied for them for over a year and a half and basically we're best friends.
but today, a new one came to town.
annabella hope hayes.
she couldn't be more perfect.
today, june 24th is her birthday.
it's also mine and alyssa's (the eldest) half birthday.
she was born right after 7 this morning.
i was at the hospital by 8 and played and loved on addi and alyssa since i couldn't go back into recovery.
i went back after picking up ryan and walked in on amber and the nurse right before attempting to breast feed for the first time.
i had seen photos of anabella all day but this was the first time i had seen her.
i had felt her feet and butt and elbow and hands when she was inside of amber.
seen her a hundred times in ultrasounds and was there the moment they found out she was pregnant.
seeing a baby that i have known for 9 months was more overwhelming than i expected.
amber handed me the baby and i lost it.
i just starting sobbing and i couldn't stop myself, it just kept getting worse.
so there i was,
holding a baby, the nurse not knowing who i am, crying my eyes out.
i have just never seen something so beautiful.
amber then explained to the nurse that i had been with her the entire pregnancy and maybe that would make sense why i was a MESS.
i just honestly cannot believe that she is out!
it seemed so normal for amber to be pregnant and so mindblowing that anabella is here.
i can't wait to watch her grow and get to know such a miracle baby.
