Two Weeks Old!

Josie is already two weeks old.  Time is going so fast.   She is such a sweet baby.  We are so blessed to have her in our family.  She is a pretty good sleeper.   About 3-4 hours at night, so I will take it!   She is pretty laid back like her dad, so we will keep our fingers crossed.  I forgot how easy one baby was.  Everyone is adjusting to having her in our home.   I still can't believe that I have four kids.  Wild.

Here she is.   Our beautiful baby girl born Friday July 10th at 6:45 p.m.   She weighed 6lbs and 2oz.   She was our biggest baby.   I have to mention that it was 114 degrees the day she was born.

So on Thursday July 9th I went in for my Dr. appointment.    She checked me and I was at dilated to a 3.5 and 50% effaced.   She asked me if I wanted  my membranes stripped, so I said yes and she did.   I asked her if she thought that I would have her that weekend and she said probably not. I went home and back to my normal routine.  I really didn't have any major contractions or anything.   Went to bed Thursday night, woke up Friday morning feeling fine.   I went to the gym and did a cycle class.  About half way into it I started having contractions that were about 5 minutes apart.   Those who know me I suffered through it and had to finish the class.   I wasn't too worried about them and thought they would go away.  So I grabbed my kids and hurried home to shower.  Well the contractions didn't go away.   They kept getting closer, so I called Sean and told me him that he needed to wrap things up at work and meet me at the hospital, so I could get checked out. I then called my friend Amy and told her what was going on.  She was at movie day with her kids and my other friend Dana and her kids.   Amy came over with Dana's daughter Becca and Amy drove me to the hospital and Becca watched my kids.  In the car on the way there, my contractions were about 2-3 minutes apart.  Got to the hospital and to make a long story short Josie Amber Cramer was born VBAC at 6:45p.m after about 6 hours of labor.
