week 25 of 52/mother's day mania/thursday 5

Forever In Blue Jeans

Mama M at www.fivecrookedhalos.blogspot.com/ is having Mother's day mania.

Today is Birth stories.

Kendall

Well where to begin.....Daddy was in Iraq. Since I couldn't have the one person that I wanted more than anything, I decided to make it a merry old party. Grammy, Erin R., Jess, Pam, & Lori were there when you made your grand entrance. I went to the "deployed spouses dinner" on base that Thursday, June 29th. I had worked until 3 that day & was enjoying the service at the chapel when I started to feel a little trickle. At first I thought that I was having a leaky bladder, but no my water had broke! I ate dinner (since I knew they wouldn't give me any in the hospital) & then we were off to the races. I will spare the gory details but suffice to say I had a mid-wife who didn't know what she was doing so you had a rather rough entrance into the world complete with forceps, breathing, & heart rate problems. Oh but once you were worked with a little bit...you were a force to be reckoned with! Mommy couldn't stop staring at you & really believe that you were there. Daddy stayed on the phone the entire time so he could hear everything that was going on. You started as a little fighter (Maybe strong-willed is a better word) & have been so since your birth!

Isaac

How much different your birth was than your sissy's. My water broke in pretty much the same way (with a little help from daddy pressing on pressure points.) Daddy, sissy, and I walked the streets of our neighborhood for awhile then headed to the hospital. I had the most beautiful labor with you. A wonderful midwife and a peaceful, easy labor even though you were 2 pounds heavier than your sissy. What a breeze! You were a snuggler from the get-go & have remained that way ever since then!
