~What a day! Baby AND a Baby Shower~

On the evening of October 6, we got a phone call that Robyn's water had broken! I was so excited I couldn't even think straight! We waited through the night for the call that she had started pushing, so needless to say I didn't sleep AT ALL. Emerson's bag was packed, and I was ready to get my hands on my precious new niece! We were told at about 730a that she was at a 6, so I ran to Target to get a "welcome to the world Kennedy" present, and Joann's to buy more tule for a tutu for Emerson. While waiting for my turn at the cut counter, I jumped on facebook. I saw a post from one of DJ's sisters, that Kennedy should be here within the hour so they were jumping in a car to head this way. WHAT??? I called Josh right away and he was just getting off the phone with his mom... Kennedy would be here soon! I began boaring holes into the backs of the heads of those taking their time about how much material they needed cut. I NEEDED OUTTA THERE! I got my tule, ran home, and we headed to the hospital. That sweet baby girl was born at 957a. About 2 minutes before we got there! I was so excited! We sat and waited for pictures to be brought out. Lynda came out and showed a few, and miss Kennedy has her mama's mouth! Robyn has a beautiful mouth, and so miss Kennedy is one lucky girl! Robyn dilated from a 6-10 super quickly, and only pushed for 25 minutes! I prayed and prayed that she would have an easy delivery, poor girl had a crappy pregnancy like I did, so at least the labor was good!! The whole family got to be there, and hold the baby, and just fall in love with this precious gift!

Kennedy Marie Bauer

That evening, we had a baby shower (sprinkle) for Michelle and sweet little Ryken that will be here in about a month. Her friends Stepheni & Stephanie put it on, and they did a FABULOUS job! Michelle got SPOILED with fun gifts and clothes for Ryken, and everybody seemed to have a great time. I was thankful Robyn had Kennedy in the morning hours, so I could still be a part of Michelle's big night. Two baby celebrations for 2 of my sisters in ONE day! I love it!

I didn't take any pictures at Michelle's shower, so once Stepheni Mason, of Mason Jar Photography, posts some I'll post some here!
