So I decided that my valentines gift to all my family and friends would be to update my blog!!! I know its been forever since my last post and of course you are all dying to hear about and see the new addition to our family!! So I guess I should start from the beginning...
I will spare you all the not so pleasent details of the whole labor and delivery story and just give a short recap of the big event. It all started early in the morning of the 28th. I woke up at around 4:00AM to contractions about 5-6 minutes apart, but not too painful. After an hour of timing the contractions that were getting closer and more painful, I decided to wake up Cory to ask him what we should do and in just a few minutes I heard my mom get up to the bathroom probably because she heard us talking and moving around. As soon as I told her I was having contractions she immediately said we need to go to the hospital right now! (hehe she was an anxious grandmother) So then I called my midwife and off we went around 6:00AM. After we got all situated at the hospital my midwife checked to see were I was at and sadly I was only dialated to a 1. Then from 7 in the morning to 2 that afternoon I didn't have any progress so they sent me home on some pain meds that would help take the edge off the contractions that were consistantly 3 minutes apart. Well by this point I was very disappointed and exhausted. I did not want to go home (which is 45 minutes from the hospital) and try to sleep when I could still feel every contraction and they kept getting worse. Once we got back home I tried to get some sleep but after an hour and a half of suffering through those stinkin contractions I said we are going back to the hospital now! The ride back was the longest ride of my life! So miserable! Cory told me later that he was going around 90mph the whole way when the speed limit is only 65! hehe I guess he didn't want me having this baby in the car. So once I got re-admitted around 5:30PM and the nurse checked me I was now dialated to a 5. They asked if I wanted the epidural now and I said YES PLEASE! And what a relief that was once it kicked in. When they checked my progress at 9:00PM I was at a 7 and they decided to break my water then. That certainly moved things along because by 11:00 I was completely dialated and ready to push. And after a little over an hour our beautiful boy was here!!! What an amazing experience! He is such a little miracle, and we jsut couldn't be happier!On December 29, 2009 at 12:24 AM Owen Cory Evans came into the world and joined our family! He weighed in at 7 lbs. 13 oz. and was 21 inches long. Absolutely perfect healthy, handsome baby boy!

He has been such a joy in our lives and we have been enjoying every minute with him. He has been smiling and talking now for a good two weeks which is pretty much the sweetest thing in the world to see! Cory and I just can't get enough of our sweetheart! We love you Owie!
