Max and I are home this weekend to see the family and celebrate our birthdays. My sister in law was due last Sunday. My only hope was that now that it's been several days, she would just wait until we leave.
We had a dinner tonight with lots of family at my parents house with some of Max's family too. As everyone was finishing up their food, my SIL decided it was probably time to head to the birthing center, about an hour away.
I held it together very well until my dad walked up and figured out what was happening. The look on his face was pure joy. His first granddaughter is on her way.
I was able to quickly leave the room before I lost it completely. I headed toward the front door so I could say bye and give a hug to my brother and SIL on their way out the door. We got to have a good little private cry together before they hit the road.
My parents will head up in the morning. Im not sure what I will do. I guess we will play it by ear.
I wish it were me.
