I'm so excited I can hardly stand it!! After having my cell phone attached to me ALL day on Sunday while she was in labor, my sister Kelli delivered her first baby on Sunday night!!! :) Joseph Keith Roads was born on Sunday, April 26 at 8:19 pm. He weighed 6 lbs 11 oz, and was 20 inches long. She sent me a PRECIOUS picture on my phone, but I have no clue how to get that on my computer, so I'm trying to be patient to get REAL pictures on my computer from her once she gets home. He is a CUTIE though - and absolutely perfect of course!
I've talked with Kelli a few times today and they are doing so great. He's eating well, sleeping well, pooping well - you know, that's about all he has to do right now! She's feeling GREAT, not happy with the hospital food, and getting a bit stir crazy! :) They'll probably head home tomorrow afternoon.
It's been so fun to hear all of her musings about this new experience of parenthood that she and Scott are now experiencing for the first time. When I talked to her on Sunday night after he was born, she said "it's just so surreal!" I totally remember that feeling. And even though I've had 3 babies now, I feel like that everytime one is born. That their whole little person was exactly that way, only inside of me!! It's just an amazing miracle - it never gets old. So it has been so much fun hearing Kelli now experience these things!
Oh - and all night on Sunday, my OWN little guy inside of me was going BONKERS! I think he knew that his little buddy Joseph was making his grand appearance. He seemed to be cheering him on from inside of me! :)
