I can't write much now - tired & NAK at 330am LOL, but we are doing really well now. I started out on Monday the 15th with some early labor & ended up at the hospital that night with crazy contrax every 1-2 mins, most lasting 2-3 minutes (one even lasted 7 1/2 minutes ) so they gave me IV fluids, that helped to shorten them & spaced them out to about 4 mins. From there it just got weirder (write more later) anyway, I just couldn't seem to dilate...so three days later & about 4 more trips to & from the hospital (which I kept opting to go home since it's only like 5 blocks)..FINALLY I managed to dilate all at once it seems. All of a sudeen I was literally forced to my knees & couldn't stand up, we managed into the car, to the hospital, made it to the room, the Dr walked in, broke my water & told me to push whenever I was ready & 15 mins later he was finally here! It was a REALLY long labor, but a super fast ending thankfully & THIS time I only had a few 1st & 2nd degree tears, so like 7 stitches. The ONLY thing I really hurt from is that my body is sore like a huge overdone workout, my hemmorhoids suck a TON (but I have learned that setting on a boppy is a beautiful thing) and mt hips are really really loose - like feel dislocated...but overall, I really do feel good. Now I just need more naps. Oh & so far Jonah LOVES baby Isaac & talks so sweet to him & wants to show him off. The ONLY problem we have so far is every time Isaac cries at all Jonah wants to jump in to help & follow up with getting a kleenes to wipes his "tears" & nose because that is what Jonah wants after he cries...LOL It is very sweet, but also means you have to watch Jonah like a hawk!

Congratulations Beckie! I am so happy for you that Isaac is finally here! You deserve this happiness! You've been through so much. I'm so happy this moment has finally arrived. Holding them in your arms really does make all the pain and sadness we go through worth it.
