October 31...no way on that day!

What am I doing Saturday...

Well it's the day I'll always remember as being October 31....
since my baby (ok he's not a baby technically)
started to come...

Can you believe it?
October 31?

I wasn't having that...
So I just stopped...
walking...
talking
doing anything!

But the baby had his own timetable.
So off to the hospital I went.

They said I was dehydrated (I guess I stopped drinking too.)

I
held
my
breath....

November 1, 12:00 a.m.

OK...I'm ready to have the baby now.

I.V. water and saline in the line...

contractions....



gone!

Hey....I said I'm ready!
you can come out now.



NOTHING!


So they sent me home.
2:30 a.m.



10:50 a.m.
Boys at barber with hubby.

STRONG contraction.

I go and take a shower.


ANOTHER strong contraction.
Oh...I don't feel so good.

I'll go and take a nap.

2:30 p.m. Wake up from nap with a
REALLY
STRONG
CONTRACTION!

My hubby comes in...
"I saw you sleeping and didn't want to bother you...
having any contractions?"

YYEEEESSSSS!!! right now!

Call our sitter (my sister.)
She's working.
Ugghhh!

Call grandpa (backup)
He picks up the boys.

3:00 p.m.
Enter hospital.
They want to weigh me.
I'm not getting on the scale.

"Ma'am you have to."

NOOOOOOOO I don't!

"What if you need anaesthesia ?"

Weeeiiighhhh me when I need the anaesthesia then!

Nurse gives up and puts me in the wheelchair.
Get to room.
Bill I need my purse.
Go to the car.
Get my purse...
and my dot candies.

Hubby leaves room.
Walks back through hospital.
In between contractions I hear overhead..

"Mr. Bill M...., please report to maternity..Stat"

Bill walks in the room.
I push hard.
Baby comes out!

I scream...
Bill did you get my dots.
3:59 p.m.
Bryson Alexander

his name "Bryson" Ancient Welsh...meaning ...bright star
Alexander - Roman...meaning "the greatest"

Well he's a bright light of energy who thinks he's the greatest!

You're such a little Moses. Very passionate about your likes with a great sense of justice. You love police and legos. You feel the need to be the judge and jury. Like Moses you're prone to taking justice in your own hands...(we're working on that.) When you're in a good mood...you're sweet and empathetic...looking for the underdog...
Somewhere inbetween the legos, fighting your brothers and getting grumpy
God has great plans for you.
