Introducing : Drake H. B. S.

Not that these pictures got uploaded in the order I wanted or anything- ugh...but alas, the waiting is over and my son is here! And it was quite an experience. I didn't realize how involuntary the wave of adoration was...and immediate! We love our perfect little... Laydee and Drake on our birthday!
He was born on the afternoon of my birthday-7.7lbs/21 1/2 inches long.

So sweet!

The first moments... :)



Mommy and baby


My sweet boys...
What a few days! I went into to be induced on Wed @ 5am...didn't get seen until almost 8 (lots of babies coming) had to wait until 10 for my drugs to get there since they didn't have that ONE at the hospital...waited the 12 hours for it to run it's course...got started on the labor drug at 11pm that night. An hour later I opted for the epidural...why be uncomfy for unknown amounts of time?? I was having a lot of contractions, but a few set backs...every contraction I had cut the baby's oxygen (the cord was around his belly) and a tiny part of my cervix wouldn't give up. My dr. came at around noon to check everything and realized that baby's head was stuck behind my pelvis...he was unable to lower himself! So the dr. decided to ready the surgery room, but try to pull his head under manually which-thank heaven-worked. Then I got started and 40 minutes and a lot of ice (they had to put me on oxygen for baby-hello cottonmouth) our son was born, without surgery...Yeah. Lots of praying there.
My recovery is going well- and Drake is a champ at home life. Just a calm, peaceful boy...for now.

Just A LITTLE PRIDE TO SHARE HERE...
Shay, you have been a tough person to be around the past 9 months prior to baby Drake's arrival! But you have been so fun to watch now that he is here! Your demeanor, your happiness and your loving side has come full circle and I cannot let this opportunity to "TOOT YOUR HORN" for you pass me by.
As your marmie, I am oh so proud of you and the life that you have created for your wonderful husband and son. I am amazed at your dedication to them and to your faith. The goals that you are working on, the house that you make a home, and the faith that you promote by your actions and deeds is awesome! You are truly a joy to have as a daughter.
As a woman, I am amazed at your recovery...your motivation and your drive to be the best that you can be...you are a great example to me...thank you! Thank you, for being you!
Thank you for baby Drake too, I am not sure what we will all do with this boy...but I think we are going to have a lot of fun learning!!!
XOXO,
Marmie
