Today was Sophie's Birthday!!! Yep, my good friends Rick and Stacie had their baby girl today at 11:56am, 8lbs 4oz, and 20 inch long. She is so cute!!! I got the call at 6:00am that they were on their way to the hospital. I jumped out of bed got dressed and drove like the wind to the hospital 40 minutes away. Rick said I looked more awake today for Sophie then I do when I show up for work!!!

Stacie did great!! She didn't take any medication at all. I have no idea how someone could go through giving birth without medication. Rick was great too, doing everything a dad to be should.

Rick cutting the cord.

What a great looking family. I was so blessed to be there to share this time with them.

This next picture is Cathy (our boss from work) showing Rick how to put the diaper on Sophie. Like I have said in the past, my work is more like family in a major way. The other cool thing is I didn't have to call in for work or explain why I couldn't be there. Because everyone I work with was there. The shop was closed for the day.
