Welcome Home Peanut!

Ok, this is overdue and yet is not because life has been crazy since little Riggs came into the world and there has been no time to blog. (other new mommies can vouch for that). I am the happiest girl in the entire world. Riggs is the cutest baby on the planet. Oh my gosh you all need to see him.
Okay here is the story! Greg and I went to the hospital on Tuesday the 20th at 7:30 am to get induced. Contractions hit fast and I went through the worst pain ever for about 2 and a half hours with them coming every two minutes. I didn't know I could have the epideral anytime so I suffered for a while. Then I got the epideral and it was amazing! I was paralyzed for the rest of the day. Greg and I watched four movies: The Dark Night, Mean Girls, Baby Mama, and Casino Royale. It was so relaxing. Greg was a trooper and rubbed my back and stayed awake with me the whole time. I started pushing around 8 p.m. and pushed for an hour and forty minutes and barely any progress was being made. Finally the Dr. came in and had to use the vacuum to get him out (I felt that pain later) and he was finally born at 10:05 p.m. on October 20th! He weighed 7 pounds 13 ounces and was 20 inches long. He has brown hair that is soooooooo cute. He has the most perfect face on the planet! Petite little features and a round little apple head. Well here are some pictures. We are getting professional ones taken by courtney winnie tomorrow!! Yay those will be up sometime too. Here we go. These are all out of order


Dear Peanut

Your due date came and went on Sunday, but you didn't. strange. I thought you would have. I waited all day for ya and you didn't show. I guess you were still busy preparing to get down here. Let's see, I jumped on the tramp... you didn't come. I ate spicy mexican food... you didn't come. I went four wheeling... you didn't come. The Doctor scraped my membranes... you didn't come. I tripped and fell on my face... you didn't come.

So now you are a day late! But good news Peanut. You are coming tomorrow! I guess I should say today because it is passed midnight. At 7:30 a.m. dad and I are taking you to the hospital in my tummy and they are going to induce me and you are going to come out and meet us. Oh man are we excited! We have our bags all packed and I am not going to be able to sleep tonight. I can't believe what is about to happen! You better come peanut. This is the last straw. So if all goes well, your birthday will be tomorrow/today. So happy Birthday baby boy! I love you so much and I just want you to come out and cuddle with me. I love you, love mommy

Well I am going to try and get some sleep because I have a feeling I won't be doing much of that tomorrow. We will keep everyone posted on what is happening with baby Riggs. Then you can all come and meet him. Ahhhhhhh! I am going to be a mom. crazy crazy crazy. ok goodnight... Oh and I just want to mention that I have the best hub in the world and he is going to make the cutest dad in the world. He already got halloween off from work because he is taking peanut trick or treating in his new pumpkin costume. What a cutie dad. Until manana!
