Welcome to the World Little Miss Stella!!

So this week has been incredibly insane!

As you all know, after several miscarriages over the last couple of years, my sister finally was pregnant and in her third trimester. We have all waited for this for too long!

Monday night the text came, she was headed to the hospital, pretty sure she was in labor.


NO!! It is not time! You have 10 weeks left and I can’t get there! Maybe it’s a false alarm.

Nope, sure enough labor. At this point I am in total and complete freak out mode!

My thoughts…You need me! You can’t do this without me! I CAN’T get there!!

You should probably know that Sam and I have a very special love/hate sister relationship. She has, is, and always will be one of my absolute favorite people EVER! We always fight! But she always has my back!

So here she was over a thousand miles away, in labor, without me!

Of course they tried to stop the contractions with no luck. She was not going home til she was born.

The past two days have been a lot of sitting, waiting, and have you heard anything new text messages.

I was given the job of informer to all, so that did help with the freak out mode. And I knew all the info first.

And after almost two days of labor, with no pain meds, (she is a trooper) it happened.

At 4:49 p.m. on August 26, 2015, I became an Aunt again, to this absolutely, completely perfect little girl! Weighing in at 3 pounds 6 ounces, 16.14 inches long.

She has a long NICU road ahead of her but, she so has this! She is already so sassy it is not even funny.

Welcome to the world Little Miss Stella! Aunt Stephers can NOT wait to get you in my arms! I am totally in LOVE with this little girl and just can’t stop looking at her pic.


A huge THANKS goes out to every single person who said a prayer, thought about, called, and messaged. You guys are AWESOME and have no clue how much it means!
