More Pictures and Information to Come

Wednesday, August 19th, 2009

Sorry everyone, but our new little bundle of joy has been my only focus lately so I’ve neglected to give details or get out more pictures.  I will very soon!!  Promise!  I’m pretty much healed from the c-section, but still have two more weeks and a few days to go before I’m allowed to drive again.  And we’re still working on getting breastfeeding down pat, but we’re slowly getting there.  John is an absolute sweetheart of a baby and such a cutie pie.

Introducing John Dayton!

Our new son!


Wednesday, August 5th, 2009

I’m scheduled for a c-section tomorrow morning.  The baby just never engaged and my cervix never softened even a little bit.  It is disappointing that I cannot have the baby naturally, but as my midwife said, this baby is telling them it can’t be born vaginally for some physiological reason.  The baby is potentially pretty big and just too large for my pelvis.

Dave will probably post something on here tomorrow, unless he can’t get a wireless signal at the hospital.  Otherwise, we’ll get something up here ASAP.

We’re gonna have a bouncing baby tomorrow!!!! YEAH!

Thank you for all your prayers!

41 Weeks

Monday, August 3rd, 2009

Well, 41 weeks and no baby news yet.  Baby and I seem to still be doing fine.  My body aches like crazy by the end of the day, but nothing unbearable.  Dave & I are doing everything we can to jump start labor, but to no avail yet.

Hopefully, we’ll have news very, very, very soon!
