93 In Life


Yesterday, 9-9-09, my sweet angel-of-a-niece, Sloane Chancy was born. I’ve never been much of one for stealing things but it took everything within me not to take her with me when I left the hospital. I even considered swaddling John Martin and tucking him in the bassinet, so we could call it “an even trade”. 🙂 She really is such a beautiful child.  It also took everything within me not to breastfeed her. But I mean, seriously, what in the world would people think if they walked in and there I sat breastfeeding my sister’s baby. Not to mention she’d be drinking from a well that has run dry. Ok, I must digress before any of you “unsubscribe”.

I will tell the story chronologically, when my brain works, that is how it works. I’ll save the whole “birth story” for Erika to tell. I’ll give you my side. When we arrived {with all 3 kids in tow} she was resting comfortably, thanks to modern medicine. John Martin, on the other hand isn’t much for ever resting. Which, I’m sure doesn’t surprise any of y’all.


These are the type excercises you do with 14-month old Rover when you don’t exactly want him crawling on the floor of a labor & delivery room.

Erika on the other hand was feeling quite well and was even up for some smiling in the bed. Here’s one with her, Marla, and me. {Do you ever think something might be a good idea (ie- squeezing in the bed) only to see yourself in a picture and then think, “what in the world possessed me to get in the bed with her?}

Shortly there after, Marla and I were allowed our very own corner, behind Erika’s left shoulder, in the delivery room. Watching Chance was almost as exciting as waiting for the baby to make her arrival.


On more than one occassion he “borrowed” Erika’s oxygen mask. He pretended like he was “joking”… I’m not so sure!

Sister was a complete and total champion. She had a FABULOUS delivery and I was so proud of her. Her fabulous doctor labored with her and it was awesome to watch her work so hard for sweet Sloane. After an hour of pushing, Sloane made her grand appearance. It was such a precious and sweet moment.


 She was so perfect in every way and so beautiful. I couldn’t help but squeal {jump up and down and cry} in utter delight. She was 6 lbs 14 oz and 19.5 inches long. She has a head full of dark hair. I think she looks just like Erika.

Marla and I stepped out to the waiting room while Mommy and Daddy had some time with baby alone. We met up with the others who were anxiously awaiting her arrival.

Allyson & Caleb were there…


 So were Bayn & Leah…


 And Marla, she loves Hornet, so she had her turn at “containing him”. She was in heaven, him not so much…


Then we all got to reunite with the new family of three and DaddyBoy got his opportunity at holding and seeing sweet Sloane…
And of course, I had to hog her for a few minutes all to myself…

This morning, I reappeared to get some more time with her. Thanks, Marla for the picture and Erika for the shirt, I stole it from your closet and I actually wore it home today. I’ll give it back, eventually.

Chance’s parents were there this morning to get their fill too…


 Oh, and Marla was back for more too…



Marla helped Chance change a diaper.


Erika oversaw from the bed…

I love new babies.
They’re perfect in every way.

We had a very long ride home. Upon our arrival this afternoon I needed Advil and John Martin needed Cloraseptic. I needed Advil because my head hurt BAD and he needed Cloraseptic for his throat because he screamed the entire drive home. What’s his deal? He screamed the whole way which resulted in me missing my exit and I  had to drive to Marianna, FL to turn around. What a stinker, and don’t worry… I didn’t give him any Cloraseptic.

The girls were so excited to have a new cousin but more disappointed that Uncle Chance “had” to stay at the hospital with MommaSis’ and Sloane. Morgan said over and OVER again, “It’s no fun here without Uncle Chance!”

Sloane Chancy, I love you to pieces little lady! You’re welcome here any time. I promise to keep Hornet at bay so he won’t hurt you!

Ok, I’m one tired MommaSissy and I’m off to bed!!

    She is honestly the most beautiful baby I have ever seen – no lying! Dark headed babies are always prettier than blond ones (and I have 3 blond ones!!) I can see how it was tempting to throw her in your bag! I also can’t imagine how you “reigned” in John Martin all day at the hospital – I can’t imagine Henderson being anywhere like that for more than a few minutes!!!! Just a trip to the doctor’s office for a check-up is brutal and I want to sterilize him when we get home!!!

    You and your husband, Erika and her husband and your entire family (parents, cousins, friends) have been sooo generous in sharing your love for each other and you are all a daily reaffirmation that God lives in us all through our love and concern for each other…and that in turn is given back to all of you through all of us out here who pray for you and wish all the best in all you do. I was stunned by the picture of Erika holding Sloane…yes she is her Momma down to her upturned nose and dimpled chin! Wanting to nurse her was the most natural thing in a sister who has such a strong calling for motherhood herself…nature is powerful! Thanks again for giving us such joy!!

  • Tara
    September 11, 2009 at 9:28 am

    I am crying with Joy. I love new babies and I know how you feel about protecting Sloane from Rover, children want to poke at babies shinny eyes. And when my new niece was crying my 2 yr old son wanted to make her be quiet…not in a nice way either. But it will be good for Rover if he sees the baby a lot. Boys learn to be more tender when babies are around. Congratulations, Be blessed.

  • jessica

    This is so exciting! You did a wonderful job documenting Sloane’s arrival… and I am just thinking how cool it is that this is what our generation has–this wonderful journal that lets you share in momentous occasions like this that you can look back on for many years to come… it’s just the neatest thing.

    I think this post also just made my ovaries swell and send messages to my brain saying “you need a baby asap!” haha. Just kidding (sort of).

    Congratulations on your niece! She is beautiful and that hair, my word! I love the picture of Erika with her right after she was born, the look of pure love on Erika’s face.

    I also have to give you some hope, my daughter (also the third) was my worse car child. She could scream for hours. As she has gotten older, she has gotten better. I won’t lie, when she was 3 1/2 I was driving from TX to AL and she cried a couple of hours that night. But at 7, no more crying and screaming! She still isn’t the best traveler, she wiggles more and expresses her desire to stop driving- but no more screaming! Which I will take every day over trying to nurse her in the car seat to get her to stop screaming (while my husband drove,) on our way to her first dr appt.

My only sister had her first baby a year ago and I totally climbed in the hospital bed with her! 🙂 I think it’s some kind of knee jerk reaction that hearkens back to the days we shared a bedroom.

It is such a blessing to bring a baby into this world and have such wonderful friends and family around to show such support and love. Kudos to you and your Sis! God Bless you and ya’lls new addition.

The picture of Erica holding Sloane for the first time made me tear up too! I’m not sure there is anything more precious! Such a tender, sacred moment! I bet the nursing staff at Erica’s hospital had SO much fun taking care of her and having ya’ll there, you probably had them all laughing!

    Oh Darby – I thought I lost you!!! I have been wandering through blogland for the last week feeling like something was missing – then suddenly tonight I realized is was the Hornet!! I guess I was in a fog in the last post and didn’t catch that you moving meant that you were MOVING!!! So glad to have found you again!

    Congratulations!! She’s lovely!!

    Oh, the birth of a baby! What a wonderful and joyous time–not to mention, painful and uncomfortable! She is just precious! I’ve been reading and thinking back to the birth of my babies, tear, tear. Must run, I’ve got to hold another newborn and fast!
