He made it!  Carson was born at 10:21 pm last night on December 6, 2008.  He weighed 8 lb 9 oz and is 19.5 inches long.  He looks EXACTLY like his daddy!  It was a long journey, but we’re so happy to have him here!  He is awesome, God is awesome!

Blogging from a hospital bed…

I’m not addicted to blogging, like my husband would like to call me.  It’s that we have lots of family and friends who can’t be with us today and I want to try to keep them as updated as possible.  Technology can be such a blessing and I’m hoping that it helps close the gap that is between us.

noonish:  Here’s the latest:  I haven’t started pit yet, but am on the antibiotics that I need before we can have Carson.  I’ve actually progressed and am now 3 cm and 50% effaced.  Wow!  I can’t believe it.  Maybe the shoveling helped after all!  Will try to update soon.

I started my pitocin drip at 1:00 and am having contractions every 5 minutes or so…not anything too painful-yet.  I’m sure that’s about to change.  My doctor is only here until 5:00 and then there will be a different on-call doc.  I sure hope to have this baby with my current doctor.

4:30pm Update:  They broke my water about two hours ago.  I just got my epideral and I’m feeling great!  Halfway there at five centimeters, and hoping to have Carson in a couple hours…

7:30pm update:  Well, Carson seems to be stubborn.  Only progressed one centimeter in the last hour, now 8 cen. and 80% effaced.  Changed docs and nurses.  Nurse Maureen says he’s “sunny side up” and we’ll have to wait a couple more hours yet.

to have this baby?  THIS READY:

It all started with my hearing the  neighbor snow blowing his driveway.  Hmm, I guess we’ll be doing that here in Colorado.  Having lived in Texas the last 5 winters, driveway clearing was something we never had to worry about.  So I began to look around at the cul-de-sac and thought, “Wow!  People are really into keeping their driveway clear.”  That’s when I thought…maybe if I shovel it will start this whole labor thing.  I mean 40.5 week pregnant, this is getting ridiculous!  So I got the kids up from their nap, well Ryan was having “rest time” and we got all decked out in our snow attire, and headed out to the cold Colorado winter.  Ryan was so excited and even AJ had fun!  Well maybe fun isn’t the word for AJ-he’s just like his Daddy, not a cold person.  Ryan made his first snow angel and AJ kept getting stuck…like on Christmas Story!  🙂  He would ask, “Can you help me up?”

I’m excited that Chris will come home and see the driveway already cleared and maybe we’ll have a baby tonight!

Update:  It has been over an hour and I haven’t had a single contraction, just a sore back.  I should also say that I looked up what the name “Carson” means on several trustworthy Internet baby name sites.  Turns out that Carson means, “swamp dweller”.  No wonder he’s so content!
