any minute now...

these two are about to have a little baby any minute now. seriously, i just barely got off the phone with her. when she answered she said... "um lis, i cant really talk right now, i'm pushing. i'm gonna have a baby real soon. call me back in a half hour."  alrighty then sister, will do. answer your phone when i call cause i'm sure you wont have anything else important to do, like adore your baby boy, or something like that.  
 i've got butterflies right now. there is nothing else i would rather be doing than waiting outside the idaho falls hospital for word that she has had that little guy, then rushing into the hospital as soon as we're allowed and bursting into tears right when i see her realizing what kind of miracle just happened, just like she did with me when i had sweet little avery. in fact, i'm getting emotional right now because i am so sad i have to miss this.  i remember being so very grateful for meag right after i had ave. she helped me with more things than i'd like to go into details about. sister stuff.  i know she'll handle it so well and there are so many people looking out for her but i wish i was there, and she knows it because i've only called her 40 times today begging for details.

by the way, i booked my ticket to come home today. September 2 is the day. i can not wait to cuddle that sweet boy for 2 weeks straight. you are going to be the very best mom, meag. baby jones is one lucky little guy.  

i suppose that in the time it took me to write this post she has most likely had her baby.  i guess i'll give her a few minutes to relax before i call her.

UPDATE: just got off the phone with meag. baby boy arrived at 8:36 pm,  ten minutes after i got off the phone with her.  i'll let her give you details, but from what i hear he is absolutely perfect...naturally.

SISTERS ARE FABULOUS! just reading this made me cry and appreciate mine all that much more. But wouldn't it be perfect to have someone that looked exactly like me to fill in with those precious times of need. Congrats Auntie. Excited to see you when you get here!
