a beautiful beginning: nolan joseph’s birth story.

Erin’s pre-baby vaca started 2 weeks before her due date.  She woke up early on her first day off, with familiar pains but denied herself it was anything legit.  We had our scheduled mandatory “before baby, hopefully this induces my labor” pedicure planned for that morning. She arrived to the pedi just after her 38wk check up. In labor. 4cm. 5 minutes apart. Ha! She was aggravated because just like with Paxton, she didn’t get to enjoy her vacation. Excited, nonetheless, we had our pedi and headed back to her house for lunch. Then of course as most women do, she hopped in the shower and relaxed through her contractions in the hot water. If you know Erin, then you know she always looks her best. So not to anyone’s surprise she did her hair and makeup while Eric packed the bag. (I can’t hate, I did the same thing when I was still at home 2-3min apart with Nico.) Once her contractions were definitely longer, stronger, and closer together, we left for the hospital. From there it was only 4+ hours of smooth sailing to baby in arms. My new baby Godson, Nolan, was born at 6:52 pm weighing in 8lbs even and 20.5″ long. He’s super handsome, just like big bro.

This might actually be the first birth slideshow where you will actually laugh at images. Eric is one of a kind. No wait, there are two of him, both equally special. 😉 Enjoy! Congrats and I love you guys, Aunt Mel.

Beautifully done, Mel (as always). You have an amazing gift to capture the most special moments in our lives. We love every picture!!! I’m so lucky to have you as my sister-in-law and Nolan is so blessed to be able to call you his godmother. I definitely cried watching this, even with Eric’s goofy faces :). Thank you for being there with me every step of the way. Your support means more than you know.
