She's here, she's here, she's here, she's heeeeeere!!! My beautiful niece was born this morning (August 2, 2010) at 3:03 a.m. She's 6 pounds, 7 ounces, and 20 inches long. She has long fingers which means she has Hernandez genes. She "talks" a lot -- especially in her sleep -- which means we're definitely related. And she's absolutely beautiful which means she must be the offspring of my gorgeous sister.
My parents gave me a call early Sunday morning and picked me up from church in Gainesville (after spending a great weekend with Jenni, Lucas, and Carson) and we headed straight to Georgia. We left to the hospital around about 11:30 pm and waited and waited until finally the baby was born. We got back to my sister's house around 6:30 am, went to bed, and woke up again around 9:30 this morning. Soooo to sum all that up -- I am exhausted. I can hardly think straight right now but I'm so happy Isabel is here! And I'm so proud of my sister for enduring all of the pain 100% naturally. What a trooper. =)
I love my family. This has definitely been the highlight of my summer. What a blessing it is to be in the presence of such a pure and innocent soul who is still so close to our Heavenly Father. She truly is a miracle. It blows my mind how she can be so tiny yet so whole and so perfect. She has the cutest little heart-shaped mark on the tip of her nose. I love her so much and I'm so grateful I'm able to be here for the first couple weeks of her life. I love my Heavenly Father and I love the Plan of Salvation. And I love the newest addition to our family, my beautiful, most perfect niece -- Isabel Olea.
