Daddy taking anden to the nursery after he was born:)

I just wanted to write this post to let everyone know that baby anden is here! He weighed 6 lbs and 11.4 oz and was 20.5 inches long. He was born November 21, 2009 at 3:08 p.m. My water broke friday night around midnight. We rushed down to MTMC and got admitted. I was in labor for 15 hours! I was very lucky that I did not have much pain at all. When I was dilated to 4 is when I recieved my epidural. It worked great at first but then stopped working so they had to end up giving me a spinal block as well. Around 2:30 p.m. I was dilated to an 8 and the nurse told me whenever you start to feel alot of pressure or the urge to push have someone come get me. It was about 30 minutes later I started to feel lots of pressure and had my mom go get the nurse. She checked me and sure enough it was time for anden to be born! I was really sick to my stomach from the epidural so as I was fixing to start pushing I got sick! This is actually a funny part because me getting sick is what got anden to crown LOL I pushed 3 or 4 times and then anden was born! The delivery was absolutely perfect. I had no pain and didn't have to push long at all. When I seen the doctor holding anden and hearing his little cry it all became so real to me. I mean I know I have been pregnant for 9 months and felt him kick inside me and watch him grow but seeing him for the first time and the doctor placing him on my belly for me to hold is when it became so real that I was finally a mom. The room was filled with happy tears and aubrey cut the cord. I am so proud of him. He has done so great with him and he is so protective of him! He is an awesome daddy. After the delivery it started to go down hill. They transferred me to a regular room and we was getting everything situated when I started bleeding really bad. The nurse came in and started pressing on my belly to help me pass the blood clots and the get my uterus to start to harden back up. When this happened I started hemmorhaging and passing bloog clots left and right. I do not remember much of what happened because I was in and out of it from loosing so much blood, but I do remember being in so much pain. They couldn't get the bleeding to stop so they had to take me back tolabor and delivery to hook me back up to patassum( sp?) to get my uterus to start contracting again. After that I became stable and everything seemed to be good until I learned about Anden. Where he didn't have much room to grow in my belly and he flipped so early he had a bad bruise on the back of his head that was filled with blood. Thank God its on top of his skull instead of inside. His pediatrician said that it will go down in time and it will not effect any development. Until then we have tobe very careful with his head and to not let a whole bunch of people hold him and pass him around because it can cause soreness to him. Other than that he is perfect in every way! He is such a good baby so far! He sleeps good, eats good, and never cries unless he is hungry or wants changed. I just love him so much and it is so true that your heart is just bursting with unconditional love for your baby. Just keep him in your prayers please. We want a fast recovery for him! here are a few pictures and of course I will post more soon!

A little showing off:)

My mother in law has stuck her hands into the crafting world with me! She loves a challenge so when she seen this idea she just had to go home and try it out. These purses are soo adorable! They make great purses, diaper bags, school bags, etc! You can customize these all kinds of ways. She has taught me how to make these too and they are so much fun! I am just so happy me and her have something we can do together that we enjoy doing. She has taught me so much how to cook, how to sew, how to get aubrey around my finger lol I am just so thankful to have such wonderful in laws. You can make these in adult sizes or children sizes. This is one I made for me:) I just loove the colors and it sure has been a hit. I love how I did the matching pocket inside. Damask print is absolutely beautiful and elegant. I see a few christmas presents in the making:)
