Greg and I were laying in bed at 11:30 watching the Office when I felt and heard a little pop. I thought maybe my water had broken but I couldn't tell. I didn't have a gush of fluid like they do on tv and I haven't had my water break for 10 years. I was induced with my boys. So, I just went to sleep. Around midnight I got up to use the restroom and noticed something was different. So I called my Mom and she said my water probably broke and to call her if I start to have contractions. Not even 5 minutes later I started to have contractions. I woke Greg up and called my Mom and had her come down and bring my sister Danika to watch the boys. We called the hospital and they said to come when the contractions were 4 to 5 minutes apart and lasting 60 seconds each. They came fast and as soon as my Mom pulled up to the house, we headed to the hospital.
Post epidural can u tell? I was only dilated to a 4 and stayed there until about 4am when my dr said to up my pitocin because this baby needed to come before 10am when He had to leave. So, they did..
And we all bundled up and tried to get some sleep. Here's Ashy and Her daddy snuggled on the pull out bed. Mom was on the couch.
At 6am the nurses shifts end and I got a new nurse. She was casually checking my charts, brought Ashy some juice, took my blood pressure then decided she should probably check me. She barely lifted up my blanket when she said, "Don't laugh, don't sneeze, don't breathe. Your baby is right there. I can see a head full of hair. It went crazy from there. She literally called my doctor in front of me and told him to get down there. My Mom hurried and called my sister, Tina and told her to bring the boys. I had 4 nurses run in and it was chaos. At 6:51 am our sweet baby was born...
It's a GIRL!!!! Our sweet Emery Grace Adamson was finally here! I still can't believe it! She weighed 7 lbs 8 oz and was 19 inches long. She has so much dark hair! She is absolutely beautiful!
Big sister Ashton has finally gotten what she has always wanted...a sister!
Dr Bean with the girls
A very proud papa
I am obviously so exhausted but so happy to have my 2 girls
Ethan has always been my protector. Whenever I'm sick or down, He's the one who is always so worried about me and tries to help. Here, He was worried and climbed into my bed and just wanted to lay on my legs and asked me to tickle his hair. He's such a sweet little boy!
After being up all night, Greg and I were so tired. So we cuddled up with little Em and took a nap in my hospital bed. The nurse woke me up to take my vitals and I found Greg and Em like this... I had to snap a pic. They were so sweet!
Ethan has become the most amazing little helper. He absolutely loves his sister. He is so patient and calm with her and always seems to get her to sleep.
Ashton is in love with her sister. She says she is Emery's biggest fan. I do worry about her though. She's always been the "princess." She's said some things that make me worry that she's starting to feel a little insecure with another princess in the house. Hope she knows she could never be replaced and that she will always be my little princess.
Here's Ty doing, "This little piggy..." Ty has really stepped up. I call him the binkie nazi. He always knows where Em's binkie is and is constantly washing it and making sure she has it if she needs it.
2 days old.
Ethan loves holding Emery on his chest and puts her to sleep. However, I'm not sure who put who to sleep here. So swee
Ty and Emery's morning snuggle.
I'm just so happy she's here! Safe and sound and healthy. We love her so very much. She is such a good baby. She's so calm and mellow. She does have a fiercely high pitched scream when she's mad, but we just laugh when we hear it. The only one who can replicate that sound is Ethan and we just think it's hilarious. I can't wait to see who this little lady is going to become. I hope she will always know how very loved she is. We love you Emery!
