I have had the joy of getting to know this sweet family over the last couple of years. Our husbands work together and for a while Nikole and I worked together. I had been in touch with Nikole and knew that she would be having their baby girl any day. What I didn’t know is that one morning I would tell my sister, “Hey, I have a feeling that one of my mama’s is going to call me today,” and an hour later I would get a text from Nikole that they were on their way to the hospital. Alivia was born a few hours later!
Nikole wanted to have a private birth but she wanted me there to capture older sister, Macyn, meeting her new baby sister. I am glad I was there because it was a moment to remember forever. Macyn spent a few minutes adoring her baby sister but then she looked up, put her hand on her Mama’s face, and gave her a look as if she was saying, “I’ll always be your first-born but now it’s the three of us girls.”
