new life

We went up to North Dakota this weekend. We got to spend about a day with my parents and grandma in Jamestown. Then in Fargo, we got to see Bryan's family. We had a little ladies' dinner out for my sister-in-law Laura who was pregnant with their second baby. We all chipped in and got her a double stroller that she wanted. It was a nice kid-free meal with great conversation.

We did not expect Laura to go into labor later that night. Good thing we didn't hold off on the dinner for another week. Laura was 2 weeks early with her first baby, Eli. Now she was 3 weeks early with her second baby.

My newest nephew, Austin Jaxon Jarabek, arrived at 11:07pm on Sunday, February 8th, 2009 to Eric and Laura. He was 6 pounds 12 ounces and 18 1/4" long. Laura did incredibly well and managed to deliver Austin without any drugs. She was happy to not have another c-section.

We can't wait to meet the little guy. It is so nice that our schedules are so flexible, so we are heading back to Fargo this weekend. I'm sure he will look like a little peanut compared to my big babies (9 lb. 1 oz. Jaden and 8 lb. 8 oz. Clay).
