Ready for Aiden – Day 7

The saddest day of our trip. We get to help get Aiden home from the hospital, but we have to leave at 4am the next morning, so won’t get to spend more than this last day with him until Christmas. Continue Reading →

Ready for Aiden – Day 6

After getting some sleep and grabbing breakfast for everyone at Burger King, we were back up at the hospital to see our precious grandson and his parents. We all got in some good snuggle time, with Paps showing off his baby burrito wrapping skills. Continue Reading →

Ready for Aiden – Day 5

We got a call at about 1am that Amanda was in labor and having pain. It took no time for me to jump out of bed, wake Tony up, and for us to get to the hospital. Amanda labored for 12 hours and was the sweetest, most polite woman in labor I’d ever seen. After 12 hours the doctors became worried about her and Aiden and rushed her down for an emergency C-section. In a matter of minutes, Aiden was born and both of them were doing well.  Continue Reading →

Ready for Aiden – Day 4

We started the morning with breakfast at The Poky Dot restaurant. It was a fun little place with lots of bright colors and ridiculously huge portion sizes.  Then it was time to take Amanda to the hospital. They kept her overnight with some medicine to start her dilation and kick start her labor. Tony and I left around 1opm to let her rest.

Ready for Aiden – Day 3

Today we woke up and ate breakfast at Hardees. We’ve missed that southern fast food chain. Tony was sweet and drove two exits down the highway to get me some Starbucks (thank goodness), and then we headed over to see Amanda and the gang. We watched movies, walked around a little, and just spent a quiet day enjoying being together. Continue Reading →

Ready for Aiden – Day 2

We got up early and met the kids at Cracker Barrel for breakfast. Then we just chilled at Amanda’s house before catching the movie Ant Man. It was really good! After a run to the local Walmart, I made some 7 layer dip, cowboy caviar, and later made dinner. It was a great, quiet day with family.

Ready for Aiden – Day 1

Tony and I got the word from Amanda that she would be induced soon, so we jumped on an airplane and headed to West Virginia. We flew into Pittsburgh, and rented a car for the drive south. It was beautiful country, beautiful weather, and we were excited about seeing Amanda, Jason, and TJ (who had driven to WV with his Uncle Paul). Continue Reading →
