If you follow along on Instagram Stories, then you’ll know that Monday was pretty much the best day ever. Not only because it was my birthday (hello, thirty-eight), but because the sweetest niece in all the land finally arrived. We had plans for a slow morning and I even left for a 5:15 workout, only to be called back by my mom. Kamin got to skip her induction altogether, because by the time they got her on the monitors and ready to go, she was already very much in labor. We got the kids ready in a ridiculously short amount of time and were at the hospital in right at an hour (keep in mind the drive is 45 minutes — we were FAST). Vera Claire arrived at 9:25, to a waiting room full of family. Here is a little peek at the best birthday ever.
