What a great way to start a new month!

After work yesterday I got a call from Candace saying she was going to get induced that same night.  So I hopped in my car and headed down to her place and then went over to the hospital. I’m really excited about this because I got to experience the birth of my nephew Braxton!  I’ve been through this whole pregnancy with Candace and it’s really made me think…do I really want kids? I do want kids, but I really don’t know if I could handle going through the whole 9 months.  I guess that will change when I’m at that point in my life.
We got to the hospital at 7 p.m., got admitted, and now it’s just a waiting game.  They gave her some drugs to help the pain from the contractions.  I’ve been keeping myself busy by playing on Facebook (of course!) and updating my blog. I got no sleep what so ever!  Around 10 a.m. the next morning she was finally dilated to 10.  I haven’t slept since Monday night, so I’m running on 8 hours of sleep. Finally at 11:36 a.m. baby Braxton Kyler Winmill made his appearance!  8 lbs 5 oz. and 20 inches long.   He’s got a head full of blonde hair.  Sooo cute!!  I'm so grateful I was able to experience the birth of my beautiful nephew.  Candace only pushed for an hour.  Her and Braxton are doing amazing!  Mom and Courteney were both there.  I can’t believe what a bawl baby I am!  It really is the greatest moment in life to experience. 
What a great blessing for her and Mike to start on their amazing journey of parenthood.  They’re going to be the greatest parents.  I’m so happy for them!
 He was not happy!

 Look at his blonde hair!
 His hair is so thick!
 Aww baby Braxton :)


  1. Thats awesome you got to be there for the whole experience. I was there for my sisters labor and delivery with her daughter and it was the most amazing thing to see the baby come into the world. Braxton is just an adorable baby!

  2. You are going to be such a good Auntie!
