It's a Boy!

Our sweet surprise baby boy was born on January 20, 2013 at 5:37On January 19, 2013, I went into labor with contractions around 9pm.  They started to get closer together so we went to the hospital where they monitored me forever it seemed.  Around 4:30am, I was worried they were going to send me home because I wasn't progressing.  I had the most wonderful nurse who helped move things along, and the strong contractions started coming closer together.  It was a long road of labor and basically when I got to 9cm the doctor broke my water, but I never progressed so I had to push to 10cm since it wasn't my first baby.  I was induced with both girls and Amelia came so quickly that we thought this would happen too.  Unfortunately, he was face up so they had to turn him in the womb.  The doctor said that having a face up baby is like having an extra 2 lbs which would have felt almost like pushing out a 10 lb baby.  My epidural didn't work too great either.  It was a long, exhausting delivery, but it was so exciting to see Josh (who was the best coach!) look down toward to "key" area and said "It's a Boy!"  We just cried together!!  Here are a few pics from that very special day.

Meet Alexander Davis!  We are calling him Alex.

Big boy three weeks early.  My doc said another week, and I probably would have had a c-section.  Thank you Lord for bringing him early.  

If you have seen my other deliveries, I always had great pictures after delivery because of the induction. I had to work hard for this baby boy.  I could barely smile I was so worn out.  My hair is a mess and the makeup was all sweated off. 

Sweet baby boy Day 2.

The girls coming to visit their new brother.  They just knew the name was Alex, but they didn't know it was a boy.  

Checking out their baby brother.  

Amelia is just so in love.  She is constantly kissing him.  

First family picture of us five!

Both girls look so gigantic compared to Alex.  We are so blessed by our three sweet babies!

Merry Merry

My blogging or picture-updating has gotten fewer and further between.  I hate that because I want to keep documenting my sweet girls lives.  We had a wonderful Christmas/ New Year's and celebrated Amelia's 2nd Birthday.  My how time has flown by.  She is having a little family party this weekend so hopefully it won't take me a month to upload them.  We are anxiously awaiting Baby #3.  I am 35 weeks and having a lot of contractions, but I am sure this one will stay put until my induction at 39 weeks.  We can't wait to see our little surprise and the girls are both so excited.  Avery has now come to terms with the fact that this might not be a girl and has accepted the possibility of a boy.  She can't wait to be a big helper.  Amelia is just a ball of fun and a bull in a China closet.  She has more bumps and bruises, and mostly, she doesn't seem too affected by it.  The girls love playing babies so hopefully they will enjoy their babies while I am taking care of the new one.  Here are just a few pics of the girls.  More to come (hopefully!)

Avery's Christmas program at pre-school. She doesn't look to happy here, but she really had fun and sang a lot.  

Avery with her two grandmothers at her program, Ma Z and Gi Gi.  

Avery and her Pops.  (Picture quality messed up during upload...still unsure why).  

Me and Avery. I love this picture.  She is my sweet Angel!

We took the girls to the park in our neighborhood to take some pictures for Christmas cards.  The had some funny, precious ones so had to share.  

They truly love being together. 

This is totally both of the girls.  Avery is my drama mama and Amelia is just goofy.  Amelia's newest thing is growling her words.  

Sweet girl posing.  

Amelia didn't want to stay still 

Another funny one of the dancing girl and the silly girl.
