VIOLET ANTONIA

She’s here. I want to shout it from the roof tops.

I have never felt so much joy, love, excitement…

We waited a long 9 months. Ok, so everyone waits 9 months. that last two weeks is excruciating. The anxiety that takes hold of you. Every day you think, today’s the day. You want to hold the baby and love her now, not tomorrow. As Sabrina put it the day after her due date: “Its like going to bed on Christmas Eve and waking up to no presents.”

We knew we were having a girl. We knew that the baby was large at the beginning of the eighth month. What we didn’t know was that we were going to have the most beautiful, perfect, big girl. Violet Antonia was born 10 pounds 2 ounces. Really. I swear that is true. As you all know, Sabrina is a tiny girl. Here she will be annoyed as I tell the truth, she is not 5 feet!!!!! How did this little girl fit in.

Violet Antonia came out, pure perfection. She is beyond beautiful. Very girly looking. She has the same dark hair Sabrina was born with. The same tiny little bird lips Sabrina was born with.

To put her in my arms was the most incredible thing I have ever experienced. So much love, different from having my own children, but possibly more love. My heart is bursting with love.

Sabrina and Steve were amazing. Steve never left Sabrina’s side. Labor was long and eventually Violet was delivered CSection. They created an Angel on earth. A magnificent baby that will be loved by them and all of us beyond belief.

We are truly so blessed.
