Happy Turkey Day

How was Thanksgiving? I had a turkey. A seven pound one.

Looking forward to a day of yummy food and parades, it started a little differently. My water broke. My husband assured me that I just peed my pants. Hardly. It's not my fault he was up til 4am playing web Sudoku. So he begrudgingly got out of bed, and we went to the hospital.

As with my other delivery, pretty smooth sailing. I was told I should keep that to myself since others are not so lucky. I'm sure. If you've ever had a baby, you know that the 'numbers' need to get up over 100 - that's when you feel the major contractions. Without the epidural, whimpy me was crying out, at around 35. THANK GOD FOR DRUGS. With the epidural I just sat back and kicked it. No prob.

Once I got up there, it was pretty quick. After about 10 minutes and three pushes. There he was. Kid2. Happy, healthy, and ready to face the world.

**Oh and congrats Anne, you won the contest!

Awww...I'm so glad for you. And I was only a few hours off.

I'm especially glad that the birth wasn't awful since the pregnancy was so rough.

Congrats to you, Kyle, Kid1 & little Bocefus Jock Shniz.

I think I called it too, but I guess I didn't "oficially" enter the contest. Sigh.
