Pops and Gigi wanted to be here when Cash was born… they even offered to come on Monday night but Robin told them it wasn’t necessary. Little did we know what the next 24 hours would hold! Robin texted his parents on Tuesday morning in the ambulance on the way to the hospital and they immediately hopped in the car to come to Tulsa. At first, they weren’t sure if Robin was kidding when he said that Cash was born at home- Robin has been known to be a bit of a jokester! ;)
They got to the hospital around 1:45 that afternoon. At that time the kids had gone home for lunch with Nana and Robin had gone home to get the remainder of our “stuff” so it was just Judy, me and Cash in the hospital room.
Pops immediately scooped Cash up. Pops is known as the “baby whisperer” in the family. Cash is Pops and Gigi’s 7th grandchild! 6 of whom have been born in the last 3 years!

I would like to add here that Pops and Gigi were absolute life-savers the week Cash was born. They came for 3 days and basically took care of our older kids’ every need so that Robin could stay with me at the hospital. Foster and Emma were in heaven having them at home! Thank you so much Pops and Gigi!
I posted this on Facebook too… Pops and Gigi cleaned our house after Cash’s birth which was such a blessing. Pops even steam cleaned our carpets and removed all evidence! You can not even tell anything happened in that spot and believe me you could tell before he cleaned. I don’t know many father-in-laws that would take on that kind of task. We love you Pops.
