I don't think I can explain my excitement when I found out the day had come to finally meet Athena! This precious little girl was ready to make her appearance at North Carolina Women's Hospital in Chapel Hill NC and we were ready to meet her. Her mom and my closest friend Tina had been induced and feeling super confident about handling this labor. She called me and we talked for about an hour or so, she headed to the hospital and a few hours later, she texted me and told me to come! 

Greeting friends and family and then heading to Tina's L&D room, I couldn't contain the joy I felt about getting to see what this little girl was going to look like. Leo looks just like his father and it has to be Tina's turn for baby to look like her! We hung out for another couple of hours and then all of a sudden things started escalating. Tina did amazing with Trey being a vocal and emotional support. She pushed for 20 or so minutes (same with Leo! So lucky!) and Baby Athena Marie was born!

She looks like a little super hero! Welcome to the world Wonder Woman 2.0!
