My Little Guy

Well, we never made it to Friday. I had an emergency c-section late on Thursday night, after a call from my doctor telling me to meet him at the hospital. I was terrified...I thought that I had another 13 hrs to emotionally prepare for the c-section. I could not have done this without Mike. It is amazing how the same person can make you so angry and at other times so calm. When he sat down beside me he touched my hair and smoothed it from my forehead, for the first time that night I wasn't afraid. Everything went well, the barrier went up at 9:38pm and I was looking at my little guy at 10:02pm.
So, these are my kids...wow, how funny that sounds. I think that they look a lot alike, they have the same little button nose and lips. Jordan is being a big helper, most of the time. I try to include her in everything...which can really be a pain. Mike left Thursday, for South Dakota to work for a month....crazy! I hope to have the 3 of us in a routine by the time be comes home.
