This time, one year ago, we were all anxiously awaiting the arrival of Bennett Ray Edsel. None more so than Britt, but we were still anxious enough! Matt and I waited patiently in Pennsylvania, with plans to visit for Bennett’s first weekend (Not having much leave time is for the birds!).
As fate would have it, I was taking my afternoon break when Britt got the go ahead to push, and I was lucky enough to witness Bennett’s birth via Facetime! It was the next best thing to actually being there, and it was a pretty cool experience even though it was from a couple hundred miles away.
And just like that, all within my 15 minute break (grand total of 8 minutes of pushing!) I got to witness Bennett coming into the world!
What a year it has been! Nora has learned how to be an older sister,
Britt and Matt have learned how to be parents to two kids,
and Matt’s had more practice holding babies!
Happy Birthday Godson! We couldn’t imagine our lives without your cute little face and sweet personality.
