Mom and Dad flew in that next morning at 1AM. and we had STILL not heard any news on the baby. Let me tell ya, I was one antsy auntie! That morning after we had woken up I got a text from Abi to "get mom and dad and em together" ahhhh!!! that could have only ment one thing, that i was an auntie again!!:) Weston Thomas Steiner was born at 6:30AM weighing 8 pounds.
Not be be bias or anything but he is literally ...the cutest boy child i have ever seen. no joke! What a little blessing to add to our growing family! :D Now imagine this.... Abi on speaker phone with 5 grown adults in pajamas with major bed head crowded around squealing and cheering with happiness and excitement and one wailing 9 month old... which was Brielle... we all yelled so loud that we scared the poor little bugger! But none the less it was quite funny and a joyful moment:) God is so good!!!
Doing a complete 180... after our exciting news we all got dressed and headed to Fairbury for Grandpas visitation from. 2-4 and 6-8. Talk about crazy emotions To top it all off, moms luggage got lost so she had absolutely nothing to wear to her own Fathers visitation so her and dad had to go emergency shopping. I felt so bad for her :(
It was just amazing to watch a continuous line of people walk into that funeral home. Young and Old alike, all paying their respects to Grandpa. He truly did not know a stranger, and touched so so many lives! Im definitely going to miss visiting him in the care home and having an excuse to go to Fairview Haven. Even more, when i get home ill for sure miss hearing the caller ID say" Call from ILL Valley Cell" when the phone rings. It is just so comforting having the faith to believe and fully know that Grandpa is up in heaven seeing Grandma for the first time in nearly 20 years, hes walking again and running and even cooler he gets to chat with Jesus!!
He looked so peaceful laying there. It was a beautiful sight. Sad but beautiful.
Dad, Joel and I are headed to church tonight in Mepo, and im looking forward to seeing my oakville girls! :)
Tomorrow morning at 5AM if any of you are awake, think of me waking up and heading to Burlington Hospital for observations! Im super excited actually regardless of the unbelieveable hour that i have to end my beauty sleep. Its going to be awesome! Least thats what i keep telling myself :P Praying that i dont pass out haha
Blessings to you all,
