Six months proceeding Amber, Josh and I discuss....."Should we have a baby, should we not, yeah, nay, yes, no....ok no. I mean yes, cause I am pregnant!" We took the boys to dinner to tell them the happy news. We asked them not to tell anyone right away, our little family secret. Trey drew the following picture the next day. When his class mate asked if that was a baby. He said it was a doll. We used the picture to break the news to the families. Hey if a 2nd grader can pick out the baby on mom's stomach my family will get it...at least Angela will. Some family members had a more difficult time with it then others. Can you see what is writen on the babies tummy?
At the hospital, as Amber was waiting to enter this world her heart rate dropped but stayed steady. I could tell the nurse was very nervous about it. She called it a low baseline heart rate. I wondered if I should be worried. I said maybe she is just chilling out as long as she can. So our little chilled out baby made her entrance into the world at 6 lbs 13 oz with no problems.
Finally get to put a bow in someones hair. The nurses at the hospital were so kind to get me started.
Let the cuteness begin......
