WOW! WOW! WOW!! We have had such a WONDERFUL SURREAL last Two weeks!!
On September 8th while I was out jogging, MY PHONE RANG!! It was our OLDEST!!! She was pretty sure she was having REGULAR labor pains!! OHMYLANTA I Bout LOST IT!!!!!!!!!!! I RAN in the house and and reserved my plane reservations, went to church to pick up all their kiddos from their Sunday night Awana and Youth Group activities and STARTED PACKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My flight left out at 6am and I was in TEXAS by 7:30am. We had a BEAUTIFUL TIME!!! She had a doula and was bound and determined to labor at home for as long as possible before heading to the hospital. She was having some mild cramping so we went to the pool and she labored there for a while, then the doula suggested we head to the mall to walk around and get things moving a bit! We ended up at the Mall BUILDING A CAT at Build a Bear. (by this time she was in some serious pain and wanted to CHUCK the cat we were building into a wall) LOL
Being from THE STICKS, I have only been to one of THEM THERE FANCY CUPCAKE places ONCE so we HAD to stop by and get GiGi (me) some cupcakes for the Baby's BIRTHDAY PARTY!!!
Our last Stop was at an upscale baby boutique to walk around and check out baby stuff, then we walked next door to get some SUSHI for dinner! The gals at the Boutique were SUPER NERVOUS that the babe was gonna drop RIGHT THERE!
We headed home, ate some dinner and the contractions got a lot stronger so we headed to the hospital! They gave her a check and she was dilated to a SEVEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She did SO AWESOME!! I was SO PROUD OF HER for being so tough!!!!
Our PRECIOUS GLAMdaughter was born the next morning at 8:58am September 10th!
Introducing Ms. EVALEY HOLLIS

With the Blessing of OWNING OUR OWN BUSINESS and most importantly OWNING OUR TIME, I was able to stay with her for 11 days just SPOILING her ROTTEN and LOVING ON HER while The Captain stayed home with our other 7 blessings!!! and an even bigger blessing...SO WERE her Mama and Daddy!! Our daughter and son in law work FULL TIME in our business also at are both in their 20's and able to be FULL TIME PARENTS to this little doll with NO FINANCIAL WORRIES!
