He's Finally Here!! and Home!!

Well our little one finally came. He arrived on Wednesday, February 18, 2009 at 3:30 pm. Labor was relatively easy, just waiting, it was 7 1/2 hours long. I'm not trilled about not being able to fill my legs with an epideral so I waited as long as I could to have one, I ended up only having it for 2 1/2 hours. I only had to push about 25 mins and he was here.

We named him PRESTON THAD WILKINSON. He weighed 8 lbs 2 oz and 20 inches long. We don't have any pictures with his eyes open yet. He likes to sleep alot. So far I think he looks a lot like Shelby did when she was born.

We got to bring him home on Friday night. Here he is in his going home outfit and right before I dressed him. He slept through the whole checkout process. I thought for sure he would wake up a little when I was getting him dressed so I could get a picture with his eyes open, but no such luck.

Birthday, Dress Up, Snow Day, & Update

Well, no baby this weekend. We thought for sure he would come. He is just way to cozy in there. I go to the doctor tomorrow morning and hopefully he will start me tomorrow afternoon or early Wednesday morning. He decided to let me go a little longer, which I wasn't thrilled, but doctor usually knows best (at least in all my cases he has).

So, we have basically decided on a name and came up with one that we thought about at the first of our pregnancy when we were throwing out names, but never gave it a 2nd thought until recently. So we are keeping it a surprise until after he is born (just in case we change our minds). I'll post pictures when we get home from the hospital which I hope isn't too far away. I just seen on the weather report that a huge storm is suppose to hit sometime today and continue through until Wed night or Thursday morning. If it is THAT big, I sure hope they don't close the road to Logan because we will be SOL!! I guess we would have to go to McKay Dee in Ogden. Does anyone know of a good OB there, Just in case?

I decided to go out and shovel our sidewalk to see if it would put me in labor, well no luck. But the girls had a blast and Shelby bawled and bawled when it was time to come in. We went out like at 9 am so it was a little chilly. They were out there for a good 1/2 hour before I made them come in. I was getting cold standing out there and my coat wouldn't zip up because of my big belly. But hot chocolate made it better after I fought to get her snow clothes off.

The girls love to dress up, this is their lastest creatation.

I gave my 2nd attempt at making a b-day cake. The first attempt was last year on Shelby's birthday I made her a carebear cake. Sydney's turned out good to. It was fun and a lot more meaningful that I made it instead of just buying it from the store. Shelby's birthday is next month and I am going to make her a mickey mouse or minnie mouse cake if I can find a cake mold. If any of you have one that I could borrow I would be very greatful. Those things are hard to find sometimes. Sydney wanted a ballerina cake but I could not find one. I looked all over the internet and in all the stores, no luck

Baby Update

Well, I went to the doctor yesterday and I am 1 1/2 cm dialated and 90% effaced (sp?) so I'm getting closer. I am hoping to go into labor before my next appointment next Thursday, but only time will tell.
