Good Morning everyone!!! I have to tell you of my experience yesterday..My great friend Sarah called me at 11am and said that she was probably going to have her baby and that I better get ready so when she called me back at 12:30pm she would let me know how things were progressing and if I needed to hurry up and get over to the hospital..so I got ther at 2pm...she was only a 3 or so..at 4:30 they gave her the epidural and she started to feel much better.. But little Nygel wasn't quite ready yet..so we waited...and waited..visited..at lunch..they checked her..progressing..but not as fast..they broke her water at 4:30pm I might add and she was slowly progressing along..and then at 8:31pm..she gave birth..I would like you to meet Nygel Alfred Hogan..he weighed in at 6 pounds 7 ounces and is 18-1/2 inches long..and I will tell you it was the neatest experience ever..I think Sarah pushed twice and out he came and the really neat thing was even before his little head popped out..he was crying..and I wondered where it was coming from..and it was him crying in the birth canal..I cried..I didn't think they cried at least not in the birth canal...the picture above is moments after he popped out and they are cleaning him off..he was crying the whole time..he let them know he was here!!!..
Travis (the dad) cutting the cord..
getting weighed..he didn't like this so much..
he calmed right down..and he even held his daddys finger..oh I wish I snapped that shot..
ready for my close up..love those little hats they put on..he even got 2 shots..and didn't even fuss once..
aren't they so cute..Sarah looks beautiful..and I will tell you she was graceful throughout the entire process..didn't say a mean thing once..I tell you had I been there..I would have probably killed my hubby..I love the way they wrapped up Nygel..I called him their little baby burrito..he looks so small and he looked like a doll at one point..
a radiant and happy..but tired mama..
ahhh the proud dad..I even got to hold him for a couple of minutes..he just melds right into you..and he even caught onto nursing within the hour..what a little champ..today the older 3 get to meet their brother..they are going to love him..so now they have 2 of each..and from what I am told the last..;)
his little tootsies..I got home around 10:30pm..and was flat exhausted..I can only imagine how Sarah felt..I can't thank Sarah enough for letting me be a part of the process and welcoming a new little soul into the world..something I will never experience myself..and it was..wonderful..really words can't even express it..its one thing to see it on tv..and quite another to see it LIVE!!!..and it was just too cool..Thank you again Travis and Sarah for allowing me to be there..and Welcome Baby Nygel.;)
I hope you all have a wonderful day today..the weather looks a bit well like it could rain..Hubby took Tucker to work today..so hopefully the weather will pick up and we can go walking tonight..
I am down 22 pounds now..I even purchased some new tops as all the rest are getting a big big and not flattering at all..so I helped Hubby buy my birthday presents..I think he likes this..takes all the pressure off of him..and I got some new sizzix dies for my birthday too..still lots of things up for grabs in my garage sale..I have a really neat t kettle (for looks only)..that I want to sell..will post that tomorrow..great for a collector..I think its unique..have a wonderful day everyone and thanks for stopping by and saying hey..you guys/gals are the best.;)
