21: 2.14.2011 Valentines Day Today we had another ultrasound. It was your last picture on the inside before the doctor told us that you were a little too small and it was time to take care of you on the outside so you could grow big & strong. When he told us, I couldn't stop tears from streaming down my face. I was so excited and so scared. I just wanted to know that you were ok. They sent us to a little back room where we waited to find out when I would be induced. I was to be admitted to the hospital at 6pm. But not until your daddy had his very first colonoscopy! We checked into the hospital with a bag full of baby clothes and yummy snacks! Auntie Ruth drove up from Colorado Springs to help. I couldn't believe that in less than a day we would have a new little person in our family. I had been dreaming for months about what you would look like. Would you look like a Weaver or a Johnson? Would you have dark hair or blonde hair? Just a few more hours and I would know! They started the induction around 7pm, but I didn't go into labor until the next morning. 2.15.2011 Labor officially began at 7am on February 15th, 2011. It was an amazing day. At about 1pm, I finally gave in and got an epidural.The epidural took away any glimpse of pain and I sat for the rest of the day chatting with friends and family as we waited for you to arrive. At 4pm I was still only dilated 5 cm with no end in sight and they started to talk about a c-section. The doctor said she would give things one more hour. We all gathered in the room and said a quick prayer for your health and safety and for a natural delivery. At 5pm, the doctor checked again and I was at 9cm. Since you were so small, they told me it was time to push! I started shaking! 45 minutes of pushing later and there you were! Perfect in every way. Before I saw you, I asked your daddy what color hair you had. He wouldn't tell me! I never imagined I would have a blond hair blue-eyed child!
