2: Your pregnancy was much easier on Mommy than Emma's. I only got sick once and gained 18 lbs. We saw your heart beat on the ultrasound at only 5 weeks along. We heard it on our doppler machine at home at almost 11 weeks. I could feel little kicks from you around 14 weeks and Daddy felt you kick him for the first time at 20 weeks.
3: 8 months pregnant | We found out we were pregnant with you right before Christmas. So to tell our families the good news we made a bib for Emma to wear to the Christmas celebrations saying that she would soon be a big sister. Everyone was so excited to hear hear your were on your way!
4: Emma liked to feel you move and was ready for you to come out of mommy's tummy and play!
5: Anxiously waiting Kreyton's arrival. Emma's excited to be a BIG sister!
6: Ready to be induced on the morning of Saturday August 28th, 2010! We were supposed to go in at 7:00 in the morning, but they called and said they were full and we'd have to wait and see if a spot opened up. Luckily it did and we were at the hospital by 10:00. Emma stayed with Grandma & Grandpa Schmitz that day and with Grandma and Grandpa Majer that night.
7: Waiting for the contractions to pick up. Every thing's ready for Kreyton to be born!
8: Things progressed slowly all day and they almost had us give up and try again in the morning. But right after Grandma Jo, Grandpa Dan, and Emma left for the night everything went quickly. At 9:45 we were 4 cm, we got an epidural at 10:30 and relaxed for about 5 minutes when we realized it was time to start pushing. Two pushes later you were born at 10:57pm.
