Well as most know Graham Weston was born February 25th 2010 at 6:34 P.M. He was 7 lb. 10 oz & 21 inches long. I went in that morning at 5 to begin my induction. I swear getting my iv was the worst part of the entire birth process, & I said all along that I was scared to get my iv! Ha man was i right... I have terrible veins so it took several tries but about 4 minutes later the iv was set up. I felt great & I was having regular contractions & I started progressing from the get go. I got my epidural around 12:30 due to some increasing serious back pain. I knew at that moment that Graham would be sunny side up because you tend to have back labor when the baby is facing up. The epidural was amazing & did NOT hurt at all I might say... best decision. So from that point it was just waiting... I ended up falling asleep & when I woke up about an hour later I was a 9! Yes I was OUT!!! It was hilarious, Keith & my dad were amazed that I was sleeping and chatting with everyone. I really felt so calm & comfortable. I was ready to meet the little man who had been growing inside m for the last 9 months. I started pushing at about 4:30 ish & he was born 2 hours later. It was the most amazing experience, I literally can not even put into words the love that Keith & I both felt when he was born. I cried and Keith choked up too. It was so surreal to finally see what he looked like & to hold and touch him. It truly is amazing how we went from a family of Keith & I to a family of three! Aside from marriage, children are God's greatest blessing & Keith & I have just been on cloud 9! He is an amazing little baby... good sleeper, great eater, and he just has a sweet disposition. We are enjoying him & trying to store away precious memories of this time. It has all gone fast already & he is already growing. We went for his 2 week check up and he has already gained a pound from the last time we were there! Like I sad he is a GOOD eater...lol! He wakes up once after midnight to eat & goes right back to sleep. He definitely gets both his sleeping & eating habits from his daddy! Also I can't say enough about how awesome Keith has been during all of this... he just loves and hugs on Graham when he's home from work & he has helped change diapers and has made me feel like we are most definitely a team in this together. You know while I was pregnant people would tell Keith to get ready to get in the back seat because Graham would take over his passenger seat position in my life. I can't disagree more! We are so much closer & I need Keith right next to me now more than ever not in the back seat... the thought of that makes me sad!. Keith is such a good daddy already! Anyway I will rap this up for now because I could go on & on about how much in love I am with our son... He is the greatest thing I have ever done along with marrying Keith. God has given us such an amazing blessing & the perfect addition to our family. I am humbled daily with this blessing! Here are a couple of pictures Christiane Wheatley took the other day of our little guy.
