Well, after more than 24 hours at the hospital and 3 1/2 hours of pushing, Kaitlin and Jeremy introduced Alexis Page Whitesell to the world. "Lexie" was 9lb 6oz and 22 inches long. Her head was too big for the vacuum, so they had to use the hand suction. (She must take after her Daddy!) Congrats Jeremy and Kaitlin! I love ya’ll!

I'm going nuts staring at my phone. Jeremy (my little brother who I used to play barbies and horses with)is at the hospital about to see his baby be born. He's been texting me as Kaitlin has progressed. 4cm, then 7cm, now some other number that I don't understand. He knows more about babies and the birthin' process than I do. In this moment I've never been more homesick. I never thought I'd miss my little brother's wedding and the birth of his baby girl.
