The Big Day!

{I made this announcement totally intending to send it out to ppl but havent...Story of my LIFE these days!}
I figured i should post this before i forget all the details (being a mom of TWO kids will do that to you! ;0) Having Everett was a totally different but equally awesome experience. Having a repeat C-Section is kindof like scheduling a hair appointment (you know exactly the date and time you will need to be there to have your baby!) which is kindof weird considering normally you just wait for the baby to decide when to come! Well the day that Everett was sceduled to make his debut was June 27th. (First a funny story) So my mom and sister (Tara) wanted to be here for everything and help me out for a week after having Everett. They got here on the 26th which just so happened to be my 'pre-op' doctors appointment. In all the craziness of them coming to town/getting situated/us going out to eat etc. I TOTALLY forgot my appointment! Apparently the docs office tried both Matt and I on our cell phones but neither of us heard our phones so we didnt answer (what else is new! ;0) They were worried that i missed such an important appointment (like honestly the ONLY important doc appointment in the last few months of pregnancy!) so they called the POLICE! When we got back from eating there was a local PD car in our driveway! I got out of the car with a bewildered look on my face and as the officer approached me the first thing that came to my mind was "I didnt DO IT!" ;0) jk
He explained that my doctor was very worried that i didnt show up to my pre-op appointment! I.FELT.SO.DUMB! I couldnt believe that i missed my appointment!! SO long story short i made a few phone calls and got my pre-op instructions over the phone and was told to show up bright and early the next day to get started! :0)
Ready to GO!!!
We arrived at the hospital at 6am and they started drugging me up prepping me for surgery!
...NO, thats NOT a hippopotamus ;0) P.S. i made my hospital gown!
I was the docs first delivery of the day so things moved pretty quickly! I dont know what it is about c-sections but it just feels so weird to get wheeled into a cold operating room full of strangers and your doctor standing there waiting for you (kindof like a bad dream almost) im sure the fact that you are a little drugged at the time adds to the weirdness ;0) I just reminded myself why i was there. To meet my sweet baby for the first time! Such a rush of mixed feelings overcame me while they got me ready (excitement, fear, anxiety, happiness) When Matt finally came into the room he was a sight for sore eyes..i was much more comfortable with him by my side! ANYways they began the surgery and i felt them tugging around in my stomache. Its the wierdest feeling. I saw Matt look over the blue tarp they put over me and quickly look back at me...he looked like a deer in the headlights. It must have been quite the sight! Thank goodness i didnt feel any of that! FINALLY after hours it seemed i heard the sweet sound of my little newborn crying! Such an amazing feeling! They wiped him off a little and placed him on my chest. I was so greatful for this because when i had Easton, i didnt get to have him on me like that. He was so beautiful. Everything i hoped for and more. As i looked at our sweet new little boy and my husband i was filled with gratitude. Our anesthesiologist was really awesome and offered to take some pictures of us! Dont be jealous of our cool hats ;0)
I was also excited to get a 'gooey' picture of Everett (when they first come out (all gooey) and the doc is holding them up because i didnt get one of Easton!) But ill spare you that pic because im pretty sure anyone other than Matt and I would find it a little gross ;0) They took Everett to our room where my mom and sister took full advantage of snuggling Everett every chance they could get ;0)

After i recovered a little i got to go back to the room and see my sweet little guy some more! 
nothing but love
minus Easton
We wanted to leave the hospital as soon as we could (thats another story!) and were able to escape leave 2 days later. I was SO.HAPPY to see my sweet little Easton when i got home! ( i hadnt seen him in 3 days and missed him like crazy!)
Its amaizing how big he is compared to Everett...hes definitely a little boy now (not a baby anymore, which i have mixed feelings about ;0) He is so sweet with baby Everett and cant seem to leave him alone (Everett is off limits when he is sleeping and i constantly have to keep Easton from waking him up!) Life is so busy with two little boys but i wouldnt have it any other way! Welcome to the family sweet Everett! ♥
