Introducing Roury Kennedy
I got all hooked up a little after one, my nurse impressed me by only poking me once to get the iv in, it's usually poke after poke, by now I'm used to it! Cameron arrived after my mom came and took over for the girls. The waiting game began, I love that it was just us, a little date before her arrival is what it was. We watched episodes of extreme couponing, followed by duck dynasty and some ESPN highlights.
this is his "waiting" face apparently
I was at 2cm when I arrived at the hospital, it seemed like it took forever to even get to a four. My contractions were close and strong, I just wasn't dilating fast at all. Soon enough my doctor came to break my water and next thing I know I was at a 6 and getting my epidural. This time around I sent Cameron out of the room because mr tough guy can't do needles and honestly I feel bad for him, he nearly passed out the first time he saw the size of that epidural needle.
the same nervous stance he had with all of his girls.
I pushed a good three pushes and she was hear, a whimpering cutie who has made us complete. Cameron and I spent the rest of the night soaking her in. I finally sent him home around 130 am to sleep a little. He's stayed in the hospital with me both times before but this time we wanted him to wake up with the girls, and honestly I got more sleep with him home, I worried less about his sleep and actually got some of my own. He text me shortly after he left the hospital with strict instructions to sleep "no Pinterest, no friends" to be exact.
Meeting her sisters.
They came quietly around 8 am, I heard them stumble through the door while I was snuggling my sleeping baby half asleep myself. I've been so nervous for this part, half expecting for little remy to be pissed as hell and ignore me to boot. It couldn't have been more opposite. It was perfect, every ounce of it. They adored her and loved her from the second they saw her. Remy turned Into a big sister before my eyes and was instantly protective when the nurse came into check Roury.
My heart aches just thinking back to that moment. The five of us for the very first time. Never in my life could I have imagined it go so well. They were at the hospital way longer then I ever expected because they were absolute angels and they wanted to be with their baby sister. I've never witnessed love so hard, and powerful. Children truly teach you more then you will ever know, and seeing the love that came out of them for this sweet new baby girl was empowering and I'm forever great full on how well it had gone.
