(4) Wed May 19 2004 21:27 It takes a villiage . . .: Our neighbors had their baby girl Tuesday morning around 6:00 am. Rachel called at 1:30 in the morning when her water broke, so I grabbed my pillow and a blanket and spent the rest of the night on the couch in their apartment. First thing every morning Atticus begs me to have Matthew over to play, so he was surprised when I brought Matthew and Caleb over at 8:30. I know I'm not the one who had the baby, but I don't think I've had five minutes to relax since I got that phone call in the middle of the night. I've had the Rowley kids a lot so that R.J., their dad, could spend as much time as possible with Rachel. I'm glad I can be some part of this magical adventure of the birth of a new baby.

Someday..... I'd like to be there when a baby is born, and I'm not the one having it.

Frances, you will be in Provo when my baby is born, won't you? Aug 25 approx. I know you and my mom have plans for UT to do Aunt LeJuene's work, and it will be right smack dab in the middle of my due date.

Here's my part of this story: I got home from taking a statistics test around 9:30 or 10:00 p.m., the evening before the baby was born. I noticed that our neighbors interior dome or reading light was on in their car. I let them know on my way to our apartment and R.J went out and turned off the light. Well nearly four hours later they were out on their way to the hospital and their car barely started. So it actually turned into a good thing that I was up taking a test at an unreasonable hour.
