Jamie’s scheduled c-section had me tricked into thinking it would take place on, well, the day it was scheduled to take place on. Silly me. That baby wanted out and didn’t care what my calendar said.
Jamie texted me at 3:32pm that she was having contractions – not thinking they would lead to anything …
5:21pm – headed to the hospital to get checked out. Just in case.
8:51pm – headed home.
10:33pm – still at the hospital. Still having contractions.
By 1am it was go time and a little after 2am, Valerie Lois was born with a full head of gorgeous dark hair to proud parents John and Jamie. And even though I wasn’t able to make it into the actual surgery, I was honored to get to capture some of Valerie’s very first moments!
Sleep schleep. Nothing beats this!
