Krystin and I kept in touch during her “on call” time and I kept joking that Niko was going to come early. At her baby shower, we joked that he was probably going to come that night ‘just because’! Linc came early and well… I just felt like this little peanut was going to come early as well!
Funny enough, the week right before I got the actual “Call” I hadn’t heard much from Krystin and Vince. I actually thought that maybe they had changed their minds about having their birth photographed. Then.. just as I thought.. hmmm I should probably just give them a call and see where they are, I got a text from Vince…
“Hey, baby is about to come” 6:19 am
I was really excited!! I thought YES! Tuck is home, he can get Linc off to school and I have the whole day to be with Krystin and Vince to welcome in their new baby boy!
So I texted Vince back and asked him to let me know when they were headed to the hospital or if they were already there. This was his reply…
“Oh yea, the baby is literally about to come”
I typed in a four letter word, may have uttered it out loud and quickly got up, got dressed, brushed my teeth on the way out to the car while grabbing my camera bag (thankfully it was already packed) and headed for the hospital!
My family was still sleeping in their beds!
Thank goodness I live only 5 minutes from the hospital and that’s if I catch every single red light on the way! Krystin started to have contractions right away and from the second she got the hospital thing started moving at a rapid pace! They barely had enough time to even text me!
I was lucky I got there when I did because it wasn’t long after that Niko declared that day his birthday!
I think my most favorite part of the day was when Vice brought big sister Greyson to the hospital to meet her little brother! They aren’t too far apart in age so when she came onto the unit on of her nurses from when she was born was able to see how much she has grown! What a special moment to witness!
G was soo curious about baby Niko, but mostly she was just so excited to see mommy! Once she had her mommy fill she was ready to peek at Niko and offer him a sip from her own baby’s bottle!
