Trey Mason Williams

Trey Mason Williams-- 7lbs 3oz 19 inches 10-17-07

Tuesday I went into labor at the doctors office and went straight to the hospital. Mason was in San Diego for a work conference and I had to call and tell him rush home. Masons dad took me to the hospital and waited until mason got there. It was planned for me to be induced wednesday morning but at the doctors office I told him that I may not be able to wait that long. Sure enough, I couldn't.
We thought that it would be a fast labor six hours or so but not this time. 15 hours later, no joke. I was so tired but just glad that it was over. We came home friday and he is a great baby. Jaundice a bit. He is on the lights, its called " the glow worm". Its wraps around his belly and its a light that hits the liver. Its nice to have it at home instead of being in the hospital.. He is so cute, he is very mild. A good baby..

Painting Time

I asked the kids if they wanted to paint my belly a pumpkin. They were so excited. We took them to get some Halloween paint and this is how it turned out.

Sick Kids and Still Waiting

All of our kids have been sick, cough, cold, throat infection, snotty nose, you name it. It has hit our family within the last couple weeks. Its so hard to fight off stuff when you have two kids that go to school to get it all over again. I took Kelli out of school for this week and Luke has to go to school or I will go to jail. Here in California if a student is absent more than five days the district takes over and investigates why. So I guess when the baby is here for sure, he may miss a day or two so he can stay with the grandparents.
Wade is the kid that got the curse of cold induced asthma. When ever he gets any sickness he is on his neubulizer. Flovent and Albuterol is a must in every car, every purse I own, and we have the neubulizer that plugs into the car, just in case. Mason's side of the family all have the asthma but his brother was hospitalized until he was eight with bad asthma. Our poor Wade gets sick and has to always take medicine for some problem, he is taking after me in that sense. I have been up with him all night because his tonsils are so sore- so bring on the baby because I am up all night anyways.
Okay- so you think that sense its my FOURTH baby that I would be dialated to like a three or four like I was with all the rest at this point. So I go into the doctors to hopefully get good news and what does he say? "Ohh, thats weird!", Your cervix closed up from the last two weeks. I was so mad!!! What!! I was expecting to be like a three or so but no, only me goes open to close. It seems to not make sense. The doctor was shocked because not only did I close the head is still high and not engaged. All my babies were head down and engaged so early that it put me on bedrest, but this baby is still high and not helping my cervix out at all. The worst part is that I am contracting so hard still and so that means its all for nothing. It totally sucks! So the next day, I ran to the bus stop with Luke, and he thought it was way cool that his mom is running with a big ol' belly. But this baby likes where he is and causing major rib pain, burning and aching but as long as that is it, I'm fine. SO -- Wednesday of next week, he'll induce me and it'll be all over with. So hopefully the 17th will be the lucky day. I can survive another couple days but I hope that my kids will be healing their own bodies inthe mean time..
