Well, today was the day! Our little boy was born 7:45 am this morning. The C-Section went really well, and all of the nurses/doctors/etc. were really great. We headed into the hospital at 5 am (way too early if you ask me...especially since they made me shower with a special soap last night and this morning...so 4 am was my wake up time) got more paper work filled out, got my IV started, starved (couldn't eat anything for 8 hours before hand), talked to all sorts of people about the surgery, and waited rather impatiently for 7 o'clock. We got my spinal around 7:10 (it was so quick...I was really impressed) and with an efficiency I wasn't expecting our little man was born 1/2 later! I'm feeling really well. I've got up and walked around, I'm not on too much pain killer and I'm just...great! I'm really tired, and if you came to visit me I'm sorry if I wasn't all there. I do remember the visit though, and I appreciate it! Oh, he was 7.7 lbs and 19 1/2 inches long! I think we've decided to name him Cole, but we are still working on a middle name. Of course we took lots of pictures to share....but of course we forgot the card to down load them onto the computer...oops. We'll try to rectify that situation soon. Just as an unbelievable little fact he has hair and it's really dark. We will see how long it will actually last, but for right now our little nugget has hair! Rock on.
Dan has been really great and is making sure I'm comfortable and have everything I want. He even brought me flowers. I like flowers. Grandma Loni flew in yesterday and has been great with the kids. I'm afraid she isn't going to last very long though...the kids kind of mauled her yesterday and were all over her. I was exhausted just watching them. Anyway, she's been really great to have around and brought the kids in twice to see us. Caden is trying to be soft, but...well, isn't. Kember informed me multiple times that she "likes her baby brother." Too cute. I'm glad she likes him and I hope it lasts.
Sorry about the pictures...I really will work on that.
