|Check me out, I am legit.|
I entered this world at 6:04 pm Monday October 21st, 2013. The whole thing was apparently an ordeal. Mom was hootin' and hollerin' to all the heavens. I found out afterward that she could have taken medications to help alleviate some of the pain. She decided not to. I know now that she is tough, but I also wonder... is she crazy too? I also heard her say "never again" about fifty times. Bye bye siblings. Oh well, now I will be spoiled.
|Mom n' me chillin'|
Ok, I am back. I just screamed for 10 straight minutes just because.
So, back to the story. Everyone found out I was a girl. Mom and Dad were ecstatic and tearing up. "We did it!" they kept saying. Then I pooped all over mom, I guess it just seemed like the thing to do at the time. The nurses cleaned mom and I up and we started "kangaroo care", where mom and I lay skin to skin to make a special, early connection. I really enjoyed this time and getting to know mom. (Baptist East you can send royalties directly to my home address, wait, where do I live?)

Eventually visitors went home and I was ready to relax for the night. But why would I do that when I could not eat the right way and scream? Mom did a superb job keeping me company, while dad was over on a couch (that he could not figure out how to fold out) sawing logs for 9 or 10 hours. From what I am seeing so far, I am beginning to wish I had been born a boy, at least for the birth process anyway, what a joke! I did finally get dad up for a few minutes around 2:30 in the morning with one of my best screaming binges yet, but that was nothing compared to mom's almost sleepless night. Next time I will poop on dad!
Well up until now I have benefited from meeting some fantastic friends and family. I can not wait to meet the rest of you. I even got to meet my "middle namesake" Pastor Jane. She prayed with all of us, we are going to need it.
