Little miss Zoe was expected to arrive in the world on March 4, but on Sunday morning, February 27, I got the text that she was coming early! I had to play piano at church that morning for a special service (one time thing - I don't always play) so I knew it was going to be hard for me to be there. After church baby Zoe was still not here so I decided there was no way I could stay home and not be there. The farmer agreed. I packed my bags in 10 minutes and was on the road. This girl has never driven down I-30 so fast and thankfully no state troopers were out that day. I told my mom I was coming and texted Amy's mom, but I told them not to tell Amy - I wanted to surprise her :) My heart was beating 100 miles an hour the whole trip - my best friend was in labor! As soon as I stepped off the escalator I spotted Amy's mom, my second mother my whole life, and lost it! She told me I had to pull myself together for Amy and that I did - until I saw it her - she looked so beautiful and was about to give birth to the tiniest little angel I've ever seen!
I stayed the night in Texarkana that night and Mom and I were able to spend a few hours with Amy, Scott, and Zoe at the hospital on Monday. She is just the tiniest, most precious baby. Zoe weighed 5 lbs, 12 oz and was 19 inches long.
The farmer and I went back to Texarkana this weekend to spend some time with the Wenzels on Saturday. The farmer seemed a little more comfortable holding her than normal - maybe we are making progress?
Amy and I had fun dressing little Zoe up for a quick photo shoot. Photos coming soon! I was sad to leave since Amy, Scott, and Zoe are in the process of moving to Shreveport - I foresee several weekend trips to Louisiana in the next few months. We have already semi-planned a weekend for an Easter photo shoot. Can't come soon enough :)
