The *fast* birth story of baby S

Man, first baby for 2017… and she wasn’t playing around! I’d been texting with mom all day as she was in early labor. With a history of quick labors, we decided I should get there sooner than later.

I arrived at the hospital right when mom and dad arrived. She was in serious labor, but still smiling and talking and laughing in between contractions.

This guy asked, “What does that mean?” (he asked the BEST questions the whole time) and the nurse responded, “Well, I need to check and see where the baby is.”

Without missing a beat, he pointed to his mom’s belly and said, “Um. I think the baby is in there.” Haha!
