One Day, Two Babies

On Sunday morning while we were in Lake Almanor I got a phone call from my friend Alesia letting me know she was having contractions about 8 to 9 minutes apart. This is exactly what I DIDN'T want to happen while we were on vacation. We have two friends, Alesia and Tatiana, who were pregnant when we left for vacation and they were due the week we got back home. I really didn't think the babies would come early. So, when I got the call from Alesia I was in a panic. We were 11 hours away!!! But nothing changed that whole day so I thought for sure we would make it home in time for little Violette's arrival. Monday morning we woke up and started getting ready to make our trip home. Brian came into the room I was in and said, 'I got a text from Jonathon. Tatiana is in the hospital and she is 7cm dilated.' AHHHHH! What?! Tatiana?! He must have said the wrong name. Alesia was the one who was contracting. Nope. He said the right name. Tatiana went into labor during the night. So we packed as fast as we could. When we got all settled in the car I pulled my phone out to text Jonathon to find out the progress of Tatiana. When I turned my phone on I realized I had a text from Alesia. She said she was in the hospital and was 4cm dilated! Both friends in labor at the same time?! How does this happen? Needless to say we missed both Levi and Violette's arrival but how cool for them to be born on the same day, right? AND not only were they born on the same day, they were only 8 minutes apart! Look how big my little Caleb looks next to them.
