Yes, we knew that part already, but it’s still fun to say
Melanie went into labor a bit early last night, so we went to the hospital to get checked, the doctor (Dr. Pieternelle) was walking up the hall as we walked off the elevator and said “there’s no use even checking you, you are less than 12 hours from the scheduled c-section, let’s go ahead and have her”.
Melanie’s eyes bugged, my mouth dropped and an hour later Elise was here!Just a few photos before I head back to the hospital:
