2 weeks old!

(I am in the process of downloading newer patient)

I cannot believe how fast time goes by! Keaton is 2 weeks old and such a great addition to our little family! We are so lucky to have such a sweet little guy. Last night he slept a full 7hrs, it was so great!!! It took him a little while to figure out night from day but I think we about got it! We had a doctors appt yesterday and he is up to 7.2 lbs and 20 1/2 inches long. He is still so so tiny but the doctor is very excited about his growth! We are all doing so well and having so much fun getting to know eachother!!!

Our Early Christmas Present!!!

Keaton decided to surprise us and come 10 days early!!!

For those of you who want to know THE WHOLE STORY...

I had a doctors appointment Monday and I had dilated to a whopping 1 and was 70% effaced. So I thought we had a long way to go. That next morning at 3am I woke up with a crampy stomach, little did I know they were contractions starting up...anyways I didn't get any sleep, I was up every ten minutes having to walk around or go to the bathroom. When Kel woke up for work I told him I didn't sleep at all but I thought that it was just a bad night with some stomach issues haha. He told me before he left that morning that I could have a baby any day but today. He had a full day at work, class that night, and then another school project. We just laughed, ya right we weren't having him for awhile. So I tried to get some sleep and I was still up and down for a few hours. My mom randomly called to see how I was feeling and I told her about my stomach issue. She told me that I was having contractions that I should be timing them, so I timed them for about and hour and they were consistently 3 minutes apart. Of course my mom freaks and tells me I should at least go get checked. After talking me in to it, I call Kel and tell him to meet me at the hospital for his lunch break. They took me in and I was still only dialated to a 2 so they decided to watch me for an hour to see if there was any improvement. After an hour of laying there in pain watching my baby's heart beat and having contractions every 2 minutes they checked me again and there was no change. I thought for sure we were going home. But since my blood pressure was high they wanted to do some lab work so they wanted us there another half hour. Luckily about a half hour later my water broke!!! So we got admitted! It all went so so fast from then on. The contractions got SO SO much worse and I was then ready for an epidural! After about 20 minutes I got the epidural and I was free of pain! Man that drug is awesome! After that we just had to wait patiently.....I pushed for about an hour and when he was down enough to see the cord was wrapped around his neck so they ended up having to cut me twice and then use forceps on our poor little guy to get him out safely! All is well now and we are having so much fun with our precious little boy. I cannot even tell you how amazing it was to see him for the first time! It was an unreal experience that we will never forget!
