I got a call yesterday in Philadelphia from Katie, during my little nap. Alexander and I spent some quality time in the middle of the night discussing that the sun goes to bed and the moon comes up, and we are not supposed to get up in the middle of the night, it is sleeping time. But I digress.
So. Back to the phone call. I was about to ask Katie to call me back later since I had just gone to sleep, when she said "hey mom my water broke! I am taking a shower, packing a bag, and heading over to the hospital with Rode" And that was the end of my nap.
I jumped in the shower, raced around Kelley and Brian's apartment packing my things and trying to rebook my flight that was scheduled for next Friday from Manchester. Thank heavens I booked on Southwest, they have a VERY liberal change policy.
In two hours, I was on a flight headed to Salt Lake City. Wow. I also told Katie to let the Dr. know she needed to have this baby after 10pm.
Heather and Denver picked me up and we raced up to Heber City. We arrived to Katie's room by 10:05 pm. She started pushing at 10:15 pm and...
