The arrival of baby Easton! He joined our family on December 17, 2007 at 10:02 p.m. Like his big brother Camden, he weighed 7 lbs 5 oz, but was an inch longer at 20 inches long. We induced early in the morning and I made great progress for several hours, but labor stalled out in the late afternoon. After several scary heart decelerations and no labor progress, Easton was born via c-section late that night. It was a different birth than Camden, but I am recovering well. We are so glad Easton is here! Here is one quick picture of him right after birth.

Officially overdue

And still waiting. Cam was one whole day early, so I have to admit, I was hoping. We have an induction scheduled for Monday if baby doesn't appear before then.

And my spacebar isn't working very well. Justapointofinterest.

Stick a fork in me

I'm done! I'm very ready for little guy to make his appearance, but so far, nothing much happening in that area. I'm getting grumpier and grumpier as I wake up each day still pregnant and not in labor. Everything is ready for little guy. His room is ready. Clothes are washed and put away, waiting for him to wear them. The house has been deep cleaned from top to bottom, including the carpets. My lesson plans are done and ready to go. Our house is decorated for Christmas and all our shopping is done. I'm really hoping for something soon! I have a tentative induction date scheduled for the 11th if I want it, but I'm not sure if I do. I went into labor with Camden on my own and would really like to go into labor with this one on my own too, but I also don't want a birthday too close to Christmas. So I debate and debate what is best and hope my body makes the decision for me before then. Short update, but there you go. Hopefully I will be posting soon to announce the birth of my little guy!
