Silly us, why would we think he would come as scheduled? Everything about this little man has been a suprise, from the shock of the pregnancy, my Dr saying he might not make it and now his birth!
I washed and blow dryed my hair, finished getting my bag packed and attempted to pick up the house a little. Eric was pacing the floor and I was stalling. His parents were on their way (a 2 hr drive), our friend Kati, who was to be present for the birth was 2 hrs away and my mom was in OK at a play with her phone off!
My friend Ashley came to stay with the kids until Nana and Papa arrived and after one last tummy picture, Eric literally drug me out the door.
I was having some decent contractions by the time we made it to the hospital. Things moved pretty quicky, but all our friends and family (except Eric's parents - they were at home with the kids) got there before we headed back to the OR.
Our hearts were bursting at finally getting to hold our precious little miracle baby! Prayer is an amazing thing!
At 7lbs 12oz and only 18.75in, he was super tiny to us. Katie was 8lbs 7oz and Kelton was 9lbs 8oz.
The kids met him the next morning. We knew Kelton would love him but were a bit nervous about Katie. However, it didn't take her long to declare, "my baby!" and coo, "don't cy, baby, don't cy!"
We finally came home Tue morning. My recovery has been a bit slower this time around due to some extra blood loss and quite a bit more pain than I've experienced with my previous births.
Konnor is a sweet angel baby and such a snuggler. He's so mellow and content, a welcome change from Katie's rough baby days.
We can't express enough how much we appreciate our moms being around to help out, especially since both kids got a tummy bug after Konnor was born. Kelton got another ear infection as well. Cooking, cleaning, and keeping Katie happy is a full time job and it was nice to focus on Konnor and recovering instead of worrying about all that stuff.
We were also blessed to have lots of visits from other friends and family. Everyone is welcome to come by and see our sweet little man anytime! Just give us a call!
Tomorrow, my beautiful Katie turns two. We've rescheduled her bday party for next weekend and can't wait!!
