Sorry I have been MIA for awhile. I don't remember getting so little sleep with a baby. She is doing great, but everything else seems to be a mess. Josh broke his leg and it took 2 different doctors a week to find the break. He cracked his growth plate in his knee and his shin. So he has a full leg cast. With all the stairs in our house its seriously been torture for all of us! Jason had alot of time off when Emerson was born, but he has gone back to work. He wakes up so early for work that he cannot do any night feedings anymore. Today I feel like I have a little case of the baby blues. And the scares me because I suffered severe PPD with Joshie. Hopefully all goes well and I'm just in a funk.

Friday I was in a pretty pi$$y mood all day, we went to a high school football game and I told some little high school kid I would throw him down the bleachers if he didn't stop stomping on the bleacher I was sitting on. (I'm not usually so rude) We decided to leave early because I really thought I would kill someone. We went to dinner and I started having contractions but refused to time them. I didn't want to get my hopes up. Once we got to the car I had one that was bad so we dropped off the kids at my parents for the night. I got home and called the Dr. They said get in a warm bath...if the contractions get worse, come in. I took a warm bath and they never went away but I didn't think they were strong enough to do anything. They were 5 mins apart at this point. I told my husband I didn't want these dying out so he had to "take one for the team" We DTD (sorry tmi) And they got strong, 20 mins later I was being admitted at a 4 with contractions every 2 mins apart! They never really hurt, I could talk and laugh through them the whole time. I didn't want to press my luck so I got the epidural around 3 am. I slept like a baby. I was too relaxed so the contractions stopped. The doc came in and broke my water at 11 am. They said I had an unusual shaped cervix (heard that with the last kids too) And they thought she was small because she was moving WAY TOO MUCH when they would check me. At 12:45 I had the urge to push and I warned my nurse I am a fast pusher. She didn't believe me...I refused to push until the Dr came in the room. I started pushing at 12:55, she arrived at 1:01 pm. She was 8lbs...my biggest baby! I had one superficial tear. And I was up and walking before 2:00. We went home the next day at 2:00. The kids love her and I am so happy to be home!!!
