The Unveiling and the Thank You

The Unveiling

Today Lori and I read through the whole blog together from day one, and there was about 3 hours of straight crying going on. She absolutely loves it. As an extra added bonus she had no idea I was doing this. (I thought she had caught on for a while)

Baby Gavin is doing great. I held him the entire time she read through the site, and I even cried when she read the part where I saw the guy in Olive Garden holding his baby and I wanted to hold mine. It was a very touching night and my little family got to share it together; just us three.

The Thank You

When I originally started this blog I was going to make it without comment ability, but as fate would have it I forgot to turn it off and got a comment on my very first entry. I was a little suprised as the comment came out of nowhere from someone I don't know. I realised how cool it would be to learn and hear from others. This is my chance to thank everyone who has read, laughed, cried, and had anxiety with me. Some of you I know and some of you I don't, but I cherish all the kind encouraging words you have shared over the past nine months.

I know some of you had asked for the gift registry so you could send something, but the letters to Ellen have been more than I could have ever asked for. I never meant to get anything from this blog except that loving look Lori gives me when I do something really special. Thank You to everyone who has been a part of my journey. Gavin is wonderful, and well worth the wait. we love him more every day.


P.S. She gave me the look.

Gavin Michael was Born today March 29th at 9:42am via C-section. His is 9lbs. 5ozs. and 20.5 inches.

You and Gavin are doing great. I actually watched them pull him out; it was nuts! He has a huge head, like daddy did. His little nose is a little smashed, but all in all he looks newborn. Not the cutest kid I ever saw, and I feel a little guilty about that, but you said you agreed with me. The more we are with him throughout the day the more we adore him, and right now there is alot of us staring at him going on.

We were both kinda worried that we weren't awestruck at his arrival, but all seems to be going well. Thank God everything is well, and I will try and post some pictures ASAP, but I didn't bring my camera USB cable. DAMN! :)

(I snuck out of the room to post this.) :)

3 days

So at the doctors appointment the doctor found the babies heartbeat way up by your ribs, so she scheduled an ultrasound because the baby appeared transverse and your cervix wasn't dilated at all. The doc scheduled a C-section for Tuesday because she assumed the ultrasound would come back saying he was transverse. The next morning we went in for the ultrasound and low and behold he spun around in your sleep and was now head down, and according to their measurements he weighs about 9 pounds right now. You were really disappointed that you were going to have to wait. After speaking with the doctor she said the chances are that you would be late giving birth and the baby would be around 10 pounds. If this was the case you would probably wind up getting a c-section anyway. So that's where we are right now. Tuesday 9am for a scheduled C-section.

I can't believe I forgot to mention Districts! Sunday was another team ice skating competition and man was it a nailbiter. The first team skated a great routine, but our girls skated their best routine all year! The crowd was alive and cheering and now they are the District Champs. Congratulations girls! Who rocks the house? ;)
I get chills just writing about it. I know thats nerdy, but it so cool to see the improvement over the season.

P.S. K,S & K thank you from the bottoms of our hearts for the gift we were sobbing. I wasn't sure how to mention it before.

Hopefully my next post will be the baby post.
