Make Up Your Mind

Why do I feel like I’ll be up in the middle of the night writing a lot of these posts? I just woke up to Easton crying for a bottle, so I stopped in his room to try and calm him down by giving him a pacifier. No luck. So I go downstairs and make him a bottle, ready to hear the screaming once I start back up the stairs. I get all the way back to his room, check in the crib and he’s sleeping again. WTF? lol.

Easton was put under the bili lights for a certain amount of time, then they would poke him […]

The Birth Story

If you can recall, my day on March 9, 2011 started with posting a blog about going in to the hospital to be induced. Well, we went in bright and early at 6AM and waited. After maybe like 2 hours or so one of the midwives finally came in to check and see if I was dilated at all. Guess what? Completely closed. Fun. It was then that I knew this labor was going to take forever and I probably wouldn’t have him today. First they started by placing some type of pill (I think it’s called Cervidal or Cervitec […]
