The second weekend in December was scheduled to be just like any other December weekend...busy, busy, busy! Honestly, we never expected to make it through the entire weekend without welcoming our baby girl...but make it we did. We had 3 Christmas parties in 3 days, who would have thought we would really be able to attend all three of them?!?
Since I never got a chance to do a weekend rewind, let's just run down the timeline of the 72 hours before Elyse decided to begin her entrance into this world:
Friday~December 9: Date night (and what would be our last date night before parenthood) @ one of our favorite local pizza places & dessert @ The CupSaturday~December 10: Gigi's predicted day of Elyse's arrival & our office Christmas party...not to mention a full moon!
Hubby & I @ our office Christmas Party
All the girls @ our office
Hubby & I @ Branson Landing (I think we walked close to 2 miles that day along with lakefront...not sure if that actually worked or not?)
Monday~December 12: Work all day & Small Group Christmas Party @ a local pizza joint!
@ my parent's house over our lunch hour on Monday, December 12...and my last pregnant photo: 39 weeks, 2 days
And at 4:45 pm on Monday, December 12 I experienced my first contraction...
