Meet Harper Monroe!

So, last Sunday, Harper Monroe made her grand entrance. My niece, Jessica was due this week, so she wasn't unexpected by any means. How she chose to arrive was! Babies are just so precious!

Jessica had decided she wanted to sleep in. It was around 9 a.m. Daddy, Mike decided to run to the store for a few things. Max was watching television. Jess was having a little cramping. Suddenly, she called Mike to come home--the baby was COMING!! He called 911, got home and wanted to drag Jess to the car. She said there wasn't time. They left Max watching cartoons and tried to be quiet and discreet. Three pushes and that little girl was born! Mike handled the delivery on his own! The EMT arrive just in time to cut the cord. The afterbirth was delivered at the hospital.

Now that's the way to have a baby!! Little to no pain, quick, easy, and no complications!
 Mike, Jessica and almost 8 year old Max.
 From a family of three to four!
                                                 Meet Harper---all 5 lbs 13 oz. of her!

 What a head of hair!

 The proud big brother!

I love this picture most of all. My mother made all of her grandchildren baby afghans. I'm not sure if this one is Jessica's or if this was one of the last ones mom made. My girls all have theirs and my grandchildren too. I think it's really something special to have a treasure that your great-grandmother made!

I say, let babies decide for themselves when they want to come. They'll do it right every time!! I can't wait to meet this little darling!
