10.21.2009 4:35 a.m. 6.7 pounds and 19.25 inches later….baby Evan has safely arrived. Labor Day began Tuesday 10.20.09 at 2:30 in the afternoon and lasted 14 hours…..14 hours of high blood pressure, vomiting, pain, mishaps and many prayers for mommy, daddy and baby!
The afternoon is gone and we were in for an all-nighter.
As the night unfolded like this…
People came…people waited.....people went….people stayed.....people waited........
9:02 p.m. ~Who are all these people anyway?
11:15 p.m. ~Just how long does deodorant last anyway, does anyone really even know? Look there goes a baby boy….awe…so sweet!
12:00 midnight ~My hairspray finally gave in and said "I give up". How long does it take for yesterdays makeup to turn into a new look….say a Halloween mask maybe? Ugh!
12:35 a.m. ~Just how many crossword puzzles and word searches can you do when your eyes start crossing. Loooooook…there goes another one…another boy!
2:05 a.m. ~"What’s so funny?"… "Oh I don’t know, what are you laughing about?" "I don’t know either!" "Well why are you laughing?"--- I got so tickled at something ----Lord only knows now what it was---that I had to get up and go out of the waiting room….. Loooook, another baby boy…oh my, we are having a baby boy boom!
2:45 a.m. ~Why are the chairs in waiting rooms connected? Who thought of that dumb idea? And yet another boy…no wait, Look......it’s a girl this time! Finally a girl!
3:10 a.m. How long is it before your panties stink to you and you have to peel them off?
3:14 ~Did you know that you can effectively brush your teeth with your index finger and some toothpaste found in “daddy’s” overnight bag?
3:47 a.m. ~Who eats BBQ potato chips and drinks a Coke at this time of the morning? OMG…that goes against all the rules, especially after you have just finger brushed your teeth!
3:55 a.m. WE’RE PUSHING! Finally! Praise the Lord!
4:00 a.m. ~Why do you say strange, dumb, and somewhat funny things when you are sleep deprived?
4:15 ~How many pix can you possible get of family waiting and waiting, waiting, waiting…….?
