The story went a little something like this. Katie started having those lovely contractions at 11:00 p.m. Tuesday. But because Jonah's original due date wasn't until Halloween, Johnny refused to let Katie check into the hospital! Let me say this, Katie is a bit of a drama queen, well ALOT of a drama queen so I understand Johnny's train of thought. He kept telling her that it was too early. They drove all the way to the hospital, turned around went home, then drove again to the hospital and sat in the parking lot and talked things over. SO FUNNY and typical of these two!
|She's going to kill me for this pic, but it was 5:00 a.m. and |
we were SO excited!
Finally Katie convinced Johnny into walking into the emergency room. So 4:00 a.m. I get a knock on my bedroom door from "Pretty" Chrissie telling me it was time to meet Jonah. My first response was we aren't READY!! That Wednesday night we were actually going to help Katie finalize the baby room, install car seats, and organize all the baby gifts. Well Jonah had other plans!
All Katie would talk about is the Texas Rangers playoff game at 3:00 that afternoon. She was hoping he would be here before the first pitch was thrown. We take our Rangers baseball seriously! :)
