Baby Day

We were SO excited for Sky to be born, Juanita's due date was November 15th, and we were on pins and needles! I woke up on November 17th and I told Malen I think today is baby day! "Oh whatever!" was what Malen said back to me. "No, really!! I can feel it, I think the baby is going to be born today!" 2 minutes later, Lynn our social worker calls and says "I just got a call from Tammie, she said Juanita had just seen the Doctor yesterday, and no news, looks like she will probably not have the baby over the weekend. "Ha, Malen said!" "I told you, you are just excited!"
I told Malen I don't care what he said, I had a feeling inside. About an hour later the phone rang again!! Juanita is in labor and at the hospital, she should have the baby really soon!!!
We were SO excited!! But instead of sitting by the phone, my friend came over and we went to lunch, all I could think about was Juanita. After lunch she and I went shopping and bought some baby needs, I had piles of clothes, but she said, you need the necessities, so we got wash clothes, diapers, nail clippers, and such!
We come home and Malen is pacing, "where have you been, Lynn has called here 3 times, but won't tell me anything until you get home!! "
We call Lynn back as fast as we can, and soon we are on a conference call with Tammie, who says Juanita has something she wants to tell us!!
Within a minute, she has Juanita on the phone, and Juanita tells us the baby is here! She told us about the labor and how cute Sky is, then Tammie slips and said "how much does he weigh?"
HE weigh?? WHAT? So I said, "now it is a girl right?" NO, IT IS A BOY!! Juanita announces to us. We all started laughing, we were so shocked, the ultra sound said it was a girl, we had tons and tons of girl clothes.
It was the best surprise of our lives, we were in shock for a few days, but it was so fun.
That was also the longest weekend of our lives also, I had peace in my heart and I knew that it would all work out, it was just LONG!!
I will post about the day we met Sky on Gotcha Day! As you all know, we have just got home from a FABULOUS Mexican Riviera cruise, and I have SO many photos and stories, but I am overloaded with laundry, and such so it will have to wait, but I wanted to share Sky's birth story since he just had his 8th birthday yesterday!!
We love you Sky!! You are an amazing little spirit, your smile makes my heart melt, you are so smart, and sweet. Your sister may disagree on the sweet part, but we know it is there! (on our cruise, Sky met this little buddy, and his buddy told me all Sky talks about is his sister!) Sky has blessed our lives and taught us so much, he is a miracle to me. To Tyler and Juanita, Judy, Anita and all our amazing birth family, we love you all so much, you have enriched and blessed our lives, we are so grateful for the love you have for us and Sky and Solee. I am grateful for the openness we have, and think of all of you as family.
