I woke up Saturday morning at 4am to a call from Mama Jessica. "This isn't THE call. But my water broke so after the midwives get here, Ill let you know if you should come. Until then, go back to sleep." 

Go back to sleep? Ha. 

After a couple hours of waiting, I did doze off and very shortly after I received a text from Papa Will saying, "come now." And that is pretty stressful when you know you have an hour drive. Of course this particular morning it was extremely icy and very foggy. The conditions were not ideal when trying to get somewhere quickly. But as I got closer to the Kiehner home, the fog lifted and the sunrise was spectacular.

The the sun was rising, the sky was clear and the mountains shined. It was a beautiful day for Liam and Charlotte to be born.
