If you'll recall, my mom arrived in Dallas just in the nick of time (we drove straight from the airport to the hospital!) and since we had Emmett with us, she stayed in the waiting room with him after Eric and I were (finally) allowed into a room. So, what I have to share is the collection of texts exchanged between Eric and my mom after we got back into the room. I've added time stamps to show just how quickly things progressed. Take a look and relive the whole thing from the perspective of my mom, who had only gotten into town an hour earlier!
I can't lie, I still get goose bumps when I read through those. In fact, the first time I saw this exchange of texts was while out at lunch with my mom about 2 weeks after Theo was born. I couldn't contain my tears while reading them! Everything was still extremely fresh and I was reminded of how fast and crazy things were that night. What a rush! I'm so happy to have this unexpected little timeline of events.
