Passing the time....

This is what I have been doing to pass the time this evening. Taking pictures of Zac sleeping on the floor next to his crib. He woke up about 10:20 screaming, probably with gas pains. When he stopped screaming he laid down beside me and wouldn't let me put him back in his bed. So I got out the camera and started taking pictures. The light was not ideal, and the pictures are a little blurry, but I still like them. I think that Aaron is in there right now laying him down again.

The reason I am passing the time, is that my best friend, Dani, is having her First Baby. We have been friends since 4th grade, were room mates in college, and she was a bridesmaid in my wedding. We know everything about each other. Dani and her husband have been waiting for this for so long! They are going to be great parents.

I had a message around 7pm from her, saying she was in the hospital ready to give birth. I so wish I could be there. I don't think that giving birth is something you ever forget. It just reminded me of what I was doing 2 years ago. It is exciting and scary at the same time. And you know when it is over, a whole new adventure is beginning. I am praying that everything goes well and I have news soon!

And Aaron's friend and roommate in college, Jesse and his wife had their First Baby tonight too! The room mate's mom cuts Aaron and the boys hair. Sandra, (Jesse's mom and hairdresser extraordinaire) was not at church today because they were driving to be there for the birth! They have also been waiting a long time. And he was a big baby too, 8lbs. 2 oz and 11 days early.

Update: Dani had her baby after being in labor since May 30th. He was finally born on June 1st around 1am, weighing 6lbs. 4oz and 18" long.
