Summer’s birth story

It’s pretty short, sweet, and to the point. 
We checked into the hospital at 10:15 am on Monday, 9/17 just like we were supposed to. 
Within about 15 minutes they had taken Travis and I back to a room 
and the boys were with my parents in the waiting room. 
At 12:15 I was wheeled back to the OR, 
where I first got my spinal. 
I’m not going to lie, this one hurt. And I cried like a baby. 
(They were not having luck getting it put in, and yep, it was painful)
After that they got me laid down on the table and once I was numb
they brought in Travis and started cutting.
Pretty soon Travis tells me the head is out 
and I hear the Dr say, “those are some big cheeks” 
and another moment later I feel lots of pressure 
and Travis looks down at me and says the most amazing words,
“It’s a girl”
Now, I would have been happy had he said It’s a boy,
but to know I now have the best of both worlds, boys and a girl, was truly amazing.
