A New Baby Boy…

October 30, 2011

At one forty-seven this morning I was blessed to be a part of the most miraculous event of my life; the birth of my baby sister’s first baby.  A perfect, beautiful boy, Sutter Jeffrey. 

Taking part in the birth of this special little person was the greatest gift and I feel overwhelmed with gratitude and love for being able to share in my sister’s experience.  My baby sister, Kathryn, delivered Sutter into this world with grace and courage (and without any pain medication).  Admittedly, I’ve been nervous, anxious, and excited for his arrival but there truly are no words to express the tearful joy I felt as I helped this new little life join our family.

Kathryn, you are amazing and I burst with happiness for you, Daniel, and baby Sutter as you start the next chapter in your life.  I am so very proud of you!  Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of the most life altering and beautiful experience of my life!  I love you.

P.S.  There is not a mountain climb on earth that can top this!

    Aww…warmest congratulations, Auntie! I’m in the midst of a family baby boom (my first neice, born in July, my second neice/nephew coming in April and I’m due any minute). It’s such an exciting and magical time. Enjoy! 🙂

    oh you are so proud its sweet! AND I think you have changed my mind on how I feel about other people having babies. At 35 I do not want any of my own and i’ve been dreading the day my little brother and his wife announce they are expecting, but you’re right…seeing my little brother with his very own baby will be great.
