we are part way through month 4 this year... and this is my first post. So much for New Year's resolutions. I have all of these great ideas for posts and just don't get to them. My biggest hold up on this one was pictures. I wanted to post pics of baby Jaison. I have a brother who is a photographer... do you think i have any pics yet of my baby? NONE. well, that's not true. A few weeks after Jaison was born, Dave came down and took like 200 pics... He put it on a zip drive for me... do you think i ever remember to grab the zip drive on my way to work? no, of course not. I keep thinking when my life is more organized i can get pictures done... And just when i think that's going to happen.... my computer breaks down, my washing machine breaks... my toilet starts leaking... and work - well, work is a whole other story...
So, i've come to the realization that chaos is my life organized. Organized chaos... as long as i can handle that... I'm set! LOL
So, with no further Adu -
He was due on Feb. 6th. On the 11th I went in for a stress test. I wasn't dilated at all. But, the doctor said that we could induce... Well, of course i said okay! So, I got settled into the hospital. Sean went back to work. I told him i'd call him when things started happening... They started the pitocin about noon that day. The doctor came in shortly there after and broke my water. A few hrs later I got my epidural. And Sean came back in later that evening. My mom and Stephanie came as well. To make a long boring story short... I went from nothing to all the way in a matter of a few mins. And at 10:30pm Jaison Michael was born. He weighed in at a hefty 6 lbs 12 oz. We stayed in the hospital for 2 days. I came home Saturday. Sunday was my day off work... And Monday morning i starting working.... Okay, well... I answered the phones from home. So, not really working... but, still had to deal with work stuff. The following week I went back to work... Short maternity leave. But, that's what i get for having the baby during the busiest time of year.
The pics below are from a few weeks later.
