the big day

The big day came about 3 weeks earlier than we thought and if you can tell – I am a planner.   A major planner.  It was a Monday, my last day of work for awhile was Tuesday, Christmas was Thursday, and we were going to meet baby W on Sunday.  We had about a week.  Yikes.

In that week we got the nursery almost complete, ran to Buy Buy Baby one too many times, and had a lot of “can you believe we are about to be parents?” moments.  To be honest – that week was somewhat a blur but we did made time for one more special date night at my favorite restaurant – Sotto.

Christmas eve….

Date night…

The amazing people at Sotto dropped this off to our table once we were finished.  🙂  Such a memorable night.

Sunday morning we headed to the hospital, did some waiting, and  after literally what felt like a couple of minutes we met the love of our lives – Beatrice “Bea” Kelly Weidner.  

On our way to the hospital…

Our first family photo…

Our first selfie… 🙂

Be still my heart.

Such an incredible day and one that I will replay over and over in my head.

My next post will be a couple of lists that friends shared with me on what to pack for the hospital.  I found these VERY helpful when preparing 🙂
