Even though she called me as soon as she was in active labor I was not able to get to them in time. We live a little more than an hour apart..and well, her babies just come really fast. In fact, she almost had Emma (who is just a few months younger than Jackson) in the car on the way to the hospital. Her entire active labor with Luke was less than 3 hours!
So when I walked in their house yesterday Marc told me that I had missed the birth by like 3 minutes. I was a little disheartened (I missed Emma’s birth too) but I still got to see her deliver the placenta and the midwife showed it to me afterward. So that was cool.
Plus I got to cuddle my cute nephew for a bit…and really that was the most important thing.
