This next video is for my sister Nikki. She loves David Cook so I took it specifically for her, but I really like this song too. David Cook was also well loved by the ladies.

This past weekend I had the chance to be with my sister Amy while she delivered her new baby boy, Jack. I've been joking that I would be at the delivery for this baby (and her last one too) in an effort to prepare me for the unknowns of motherhood, but wasn't sure I was actually going to make it. A week before my scheduled vacation she called and told me I should start driving because she was dialated to a 4. I prayed the baby would hold out...and he did. He didn't arrive until the following Saturday, extending my Ohio trip 2 days. But, it was worth it.
I wasn't sure what to expect and thought I would be quite grossed out, but actually I was fascinated by the whole process and truly witnessed a miracle. I am glad I got to see everything and I'm glad that Amy and Art let me share in their moment as they became parents for the 4th time. Amy had a midwife, Sue, who will deliver my children because she was amazing. The whole day was great...minus watching my sister in intense, uncontrollable pain.
After Jack was born, my 3 nieces came in to meet their new brother. When 3 year old Ava looked up at Amy and in her sweetest voice asked, "Mommy, are you going to bring home our baby brudder?" I knew for certain that the all the pain I had just witnessed was worth it.
I made a video documenting the event. It's my first one so please forgive any rough transitions. But, I like how it turned out. I only wish I could have done this for all of my nieces and nephews.
