getting to witness my amazing friend bethany give birth to her son is something that i will cherish for the rest of my life.  i honestly did not know what to expect prior to the big day.  i had never seen an actual real life birth before. not even a youtube video or one of those terrible videos that you’re supposed to watch in high school.  my only knowledge of a baby being born came from what i had watched on tv shows and movies and graham’s birth was nothing like that.  i guess i had imagined it to be a lot more chaotic with a lot of people in the room and yelling (not sure who would be yelling), so it’s obvious that i really didn’t know what to expect.

when i got to the hospital, bethany was propped up in her bed just giddy with excitement.  she could not WAIT to see her baby! she was just glowing and laughing and having a great time.  we joked and shared stories to pass the time and it didn’t seem like any time at all and the nurses were telling her that it was time to start pushing.

below is graham’s birth

the nurse had just checked how far along the labor was and shared that is was time to start pushing!! we couldn’t believe how fast her labor had progressed.  i have a theory that it was because bethany kept laughing at anything we said.  we kept making the joke that she was going to laugh him out instead of push him out.

that expression on her face when she saw him for the first time is just so perfect! so much love and excitement over this new little human.
