Happy Birthday, Allie Kat! =.)

Seriously, it’s hard to believe all that has happened in 5 years.

Five years and one day ago, I got a call from my big brother, Brock.  He told me that, “It was time.”  He and Wendy were going to the hospital.  I couldn’t sleep.  I was so ridiculously excited! =.) He had called late on a Friday night, and told me not to worry about driving down, just to come in the morning.

See, I was in my senior year at Appalachian, and I had a 2.5 hour drive home.  So, around 5:30 a.m., I finally got up.  Trying to sleep was useless.  I just couldn’t do it.  So, I got up and took my shower.  I threw some clothes in a bag, and started home around 7:30 a.m.

I drove straight to the hospital with no news that I was an aunt, yet.

About 5 minutes after I got to the hospital, my brother walks into the waiting room to announce that Allie Katherine was here.allie katI was so happy, as was everyone else.  The above picture was taken a few hours after her birth.  She is my first niece, and she holds a special place in my heart! =.)

So, Happy Birthday, Allie Kat!  I love you! =.)
