Jaxon's Birthday story

So I decided I wanted to share Jaxon's birth story just so I can remember what happened! (all the pain and drugs kinda makes you forget lol)
So the night before Jaxon was born my sisters, mom, and me went to see Eclipse in theaters (best of the series) it was so much fun having a girls night out. I felt so good and got to actually enjoy the movie (New Moon I was so sick, only a few months prego). So we came home around 11 or so and I went straight to bed, I had a lot to do the next day because I was being induced the day after that. Around 1 a.m. I woke up to some uncomfortable cramps, I really thought I just had to use the bathroom. So I got up twice to use the bathroom and then the cramps started getting worse! I woke Curtis up because I was moaning "my stomach hurts really bad" He knew right away I was having contractions. He got up and started timing them and they were 5-7 minutes apart. So I thought it may be false labor, so I drank water and took a bath and they just got worse! So we packed up and headed to the hospital. Right before we went into the hospital I was so sick from the contractions that I threw up in the parking lot, right in front of paramedics (not my finest couple of minutes). From then I had to go threw maybe two hours of contractions until I got my epidural (HEAVEN!!!) after that I was so happy! The doctor came and broke my water and shortly after that it was time to push. I pushed 3 sets of pushes and my little monkey was here. Born July 1, 2010 at 8:08 A.M. 20 inches long and 7lbs 6 oz. I have to say that labor was so easy, I would do it all over again if I didn't have to be pregnant (you all know how sick I was).
I can't believe that was almost 7 months ago, time sure does fly. But we are so happy to have Jaxon in our lives, he is the greatest thing ever! We love him so much and I can't wait to expand our family down the road.

Got some catching up to do...

So I have been a naughty blogger and have not kept up with it at all! I guess there is not much to say when your a stay at home mom and your life becomes diapers, laundry, and spit up! But its all worth it :)
So Jaxon is almost 7 months old!!! I can't believe how the time flys. He is getting so big, he already weighs about 20 pounds and is wearing 9-12 month old clothes. He is so sturdy and thick, and very long. People think he is around 9 months old, but that's okay I don't want a little tiny baby anyways.
As for me and Curtis we are doing good, he is working off and on for a disaster clean up company. He is also going to school at Dixie and getting his associates in Mechanics.
We are a happy little family and I hope to add one more to the mix sometime next year, and hopefully it will be a girl :)
