5 years ago today



Rylie was born. It was around 1:00 in the morning when my water broke. I wasn't having any labor pain yet, but was told by the doctor to get to the hospital. It was three weeks before my due date, so I was happy to be getting out of being pregnant early. Since I wasn't in pain, we weren't in a big rush. We woke up Karlie and packed a bag to go to Mom-Mom's. We told her that tomorrow she would get to meet her new baby brother or sister. Karlie was so excited about the new baby. She had a special gift for her or him,(stuff hippos, aka Hippies). So we dropped off Karlie at my moms and enjoyed our ride to the hospital. It was snowing that evening. We were so excited, talking and laughing and getting ready to meet this baby!


Since my water had broken, I needed to be induced. The doctor and nurses talked me in to getting an epidural. Since I got the epidural right away, Labor was pretty uneventful. After some pitocin, an epidural, some contractions and three pushes Rylie was born. Yay, another girl. We were thrilled!


Now today is a happy day, so if I start writing about all the hell that broke loose after Rylies arrival into the world, I might get sad, so stay tuned for part 2,3 and maybe even 4. Hopefully I will let you know the rest of the story by the end of this week.


Rylie-Daddy and me are so proud of you. You have grown into a beautiful 5 year old. What comes naturally for most children, you had to work so hard, learning to eat, walk, talk etc. You are a hard worker. You fill our lives with laughter. Nobody has ever made me laugh harder then you. Happy Birthday-Love you!!!!!

Nice to meet you Rylie!
I just clicked over from RK.
My daughter has Sotos Syndrome so I know a little about that 'hell that broke loose' after Rylie was born.
I'll check back to hear the rest of your story.

Happy Birthday Rylie!

I type up a lot of my posts ahead of time, and all you have to do to change the date is click "posting options" at the bottom of the place where you type your post and you can change the date there.

Shannon, thanks, but the weird thing is I published this post at 12:05 am on 1/6 and it still posted 1/5, but I didn't know how to change it, so thanks, I'll remember that.
