Thursday, September 6th, 2007

After being "on call" for the last several weeks as the top runner to watch my niece when my sister-in-law went into labor, I was hoping the baby would come on MY birthday. I received a phone call on Thursday morning notifing me that Jill was in labor and I needed to come over to watch my cute niece Grace. Nate and Jill headed to the hospital around 9am and were sent home around 11:30am due to the fact that Jill was still at 36 weeks and they wouldn't do anything to induce labor. They sent her home to be more comfortable until she was a little farther along in the labor process. They returned to the hospital about 2:30pm and I continued to watch Grace, hoping that we would soon find out whether I had a new niece or nephew (Nate and Jill decided not to find out what they were having)...

Andrew Nathan Allphin was born at 5:15pm on Thursday, September 6th, 2007...just one day shy of my 23rd birthday. He weighed 6 lbs. 5 oz. and is 17 inches long. He was 4 weeks early and has had a few breathing issues but he has dramatically improved and should be home with his family today!

I am so extactic to have another nephew in my family, and I am even more excited that I know have a NIECE and a NEPHEW close by that I can spoil and hang out with.
