So... I Had A Child.

Pin It It's been 10 days of absolute whirlwind- and yes, I am a mom!

Introducing my baby boy, Colton!

Here he is- 3 hours old!!! 
If I could put into one word how becoming a parent feels, it would be WILD. Everything about it is wild. The fact that he is here- wild. The fact that my life will never be the same- wild. The fact that we made a HUMAN- wild. Just wild.

The whole process started as I took my husband out for dinner and a movie (read: went to Kelsey's at 5:30pm so we could be at the movies for 6:45pm, back home before 9 and in bed by 10. Party animals.). We went to see James Bond: Skyfall- and if you know me, this was a big deal- I don't like movies. Unless it's a horrible J-Lo romantic comedy.

Before going into the movies, I had a feeling that my water broke. I called my sister (who has three kids and is a nurse) and she sort of giggled at me and said that my water surely did not break, and if it had, I would know. I remember thinking to myself, um, I'm pretty sure I know my body and I think my water broke, thanks for nothing, sister. Anyways we went and watched the movie. Daniel Craig is delicious.

We got home and I went to get the laundry (even though my husband said to sit down and he would get it) but I, as always, wanted to prove that at 9 months pregnant I was able to do stuff. Well, I bent down to get the dry laundry and as I stood up, I heard a tiny "pop" sound.

Then, WHOOSH. Holy F. My sister was right. My water had DEFINITELY broke. I ran upstairs with the laundry and screamed MY WATER BROKE! MY WATER BROKE! at Carter, my feet standing in a pool. He laughed and said, "I can see that!" and proceeded to follow me upstairs with a towel. (For those of you who have visited since then, I did clean my floors).

We went to the hospital at about 11, scared, nervous, and excited. I was not prepared for my water breaking first- I was told that most likely I would start contractions before my water breaking. It was straight out of the movies. We lugged our backpacks, complete with stability ball, pillows, iPod dock, books, and other things to get me through the labour process and arrived at the hospital.

We went to triage first, and noticed there was no one there, which was great! We'd be in a birthing suite in no time.

We were wrong.

Colton and I- 2 days old! 
There is nothing hotter than seeing your man with your little man. I think my water just broke again. 

I'll continue the story on another day as it's taken me about 4 hours to write this! All worth it, though :)
