Louise LaVoice

I got a text message from my brother in law Russ at 3:49 AM letting me know Debbie had gone into labor. I had stayed up till 2 AM watching a Korean Drama (we will save that for another post) so I almost got two hours of sleep.
When I got to Debbie's the midwives were there and Debbie was already in the portable tub. Soon we were joined by two of Debbie's friends one taking pictures and the other videoing.

I started this post almost a year ago and never finished I am not 100% why maybe because finding the words to describe the feelings was hard. Maybe because ever since google reader became nonexistent I have pretty much stopped reading blogs. But I still want to upload the photos here so here we go.

I did take a lot of pictures of the birth because Debbie's friends were there and Tiffany got some great shots, and because with Russ helping with the birth Debbie needed someone's hand to squeeze.
Everyone was so excited to meet Louise.
Here she is with Grandpa probably not even an hour old and holding her head up.
I got my turn too!

Later when the kids had gone and to Russ's parents and the house was quiet and Debbie, Russ, my mom and I were all trying to sleep after being up all night. Louise was asleep by me on the couch but I couldn't sleep I just stayed awake to look at her.
