Happy Birthday Brittnee...

Twenty Three years ago today......

We had our very first little baby!
A Girl
Brittnee Vatia Jones
5 lbs 4 oz
5:54 PM

Our day started off normal......it was about two weeks before our due date.
But in the middle of the night, the contractions started
I sat up timing them as i was not sure if this was the real thing, never having had a baby before
I did not want to wake Rich just in case they went away because he had to get up for work in the morning
But they didn't stop....so first thing in the morning we got up, i took a shower and got ready to head to the hospital
We labored through most of the day...when i was finally dilated to 4, i asked for the epidural
they gave me Demerol to take the edge off for the epidural but it did alot more then take the edge off.....

After finishing the epidural they turned me back over and checked me
and i was complete and feeling the urge to push....
the nurses were FREAKING out
telling me not to push because they needed to get the doctor here
so they called the doctor (who's office was across the street)
and they were in my face, making me breath....
heeee heeee hoooo hoooo
he came sauntering in about 10 minutes later...
they had already called for someone from the ER to come up because they did not think the doctor would make it

(shes still the same, liberty lovin', military lovin' girl today that she was years ago)

The doctor was so casual which was pretty funny because the nurses were in a tizzy
trying to keep me from having this baby
3 pushes and she was born.....

Such a tiny little thing she was....
her head fit perfectly inside the palm of her daddy's hand
After seeing her, the doctor estimated
that she was actually about a month early
What a joyous day that was
and what a joy she has been ever since....

And now my baby.....is a mommy too!

Where has the time gone.....

Happy Birthday to Brittnee. That is so sweet you wouldn't wake your husband up in the night. Ha! I don't think Chris would be so lucky.
