Happy 21st Birthday Austin....

Our Second baby was born on October 2nd 1988
He Weighed in at 7lbs 8oz and was
22 INCHES LONG
(that is why I can STILL to this day tell you exactly which one of my ribs his feet were in for the last month that he was my womb mate!)
Can you tell he was born in the 80s?

What a sweet sweet boy he was then.......



And still is today!!!!




This will be the last of our birth story installments for the year!



This one I'm a little fuzzy on for some reason...
I think after 21 years my memory is fading.

I remember the day you were born was a Sunday
Granny and Papa had just come to pick up Brittnee and take her to the mountains for the week because we knew you would be making your appearance soon as your due date was October 3rd
So once Brittnee was gone with Granny and Papa
Daddy and I decided to take in a movie....
Young Guns had just come out and so that was the movie we decided on.
When we got to the theater they told us that the air conditioning was out but if we wanted to go in and if it got to hot we could come back out and get our money back. So we decided to give it a try. We had not been there very long when I started having contractions. After about 30 minutes of contractions that were 5 minutes apart from the start, we decided we better head to the hospital. So we left the movie (we did ask for our money back LOL) and went home quickly to get our hospital bag and headed to the hospital.
Our Labor was pretty typical but the one thing I do remember was that there was a football game on TV. I was getting prepped for my epidural and just before the doc put the needle in, while I was hunched over and having contractions. The doctor said to hold on a minute...........apparently something exciting happened in the game and everyone in the room was watching the game! WOW thanks guys....
Maybe that is why Austin loves football so much??
Anyway...the rest of our labor and delivery was pretty uneventful.
after 8 hours of labor we had our baby boy
