It's been a busy couple of days and I had Big Plans for posting.... but then Life happened. On Wednesday night, I was puttering around the house and cleaning and busy and Mr. RH texted me - "Would the news that sister's going into labor cheer you up?"... and indeed it did.
I slept fitfully and spent the day being a housewife to myself and trying to get my act together.
Since it was her first baby, I anticipated that she wouldn't give birth until Thursday evening and that I would unfortunately miss the hospital meet and greet because I have to work Friday evening.
Fortunately, my SIL is a champ and miss Savannah was born at 1:01 pm on Thursday, November 29th. By 3 pm, Mr. RH called me as I was exiting the shower (can't be stinky meeting a new baby!) and told me to get my hiney into the car.
Less than 4 hours after she was born, I got to snuggle the absolutely TINY Savannah. Five pounds, nine ounces and 20 inches long... she's a long, tiny princess.
I got to cuddle the tiny princess while she was less than 5 hours old. I can't even HANDLE IT! She has the sweetest, cutest little lips that she kept pursing and "kissing" the whole time I was there... I guess it was almost feeding time!!
When Mr. RH stepped out of the room for a minute, she started crying in her sleep - loudly, a full wail. Can you imagine what she must have been dreaming about? So sweet.
Anyways, today I am thankful for safe, healthy babies and sweet new beginnings. Also can't wait to shove the tiny princess into a Christmas stocking.... can you imagine?!
