bOdRiE mIcHaeL MeRrItT









Well here is a little bit of what we have been up to since grandma's funeral. Chelsea had state that next week so I went up Tuesday morning and Wednesday night. Really made me miss rodeoing! June 18th Thursday morning we went to the hospital so I could get started. 9 hours of labor later I still hadn't dialated and Bodrie still hadn't dropped so I told Dr. Campbell to just take him C-section. That was the weirdest feeling to be numb but still feel them digging around inside my belly! I'm glad we did it that way though because the cord was wrapped around his neck twice!! Good thing I'm pushy. Anyway the next week was a blur. Krista had to be life flighted to Poky 3 days later and her son was born! We didn't get much sleep the first few nights, Bodrie is definately a night time baby lol. I was devastated when Jas went back to work. It is so hard to be alone with a new baby, plus my hormones are all screwed up and all I do is cry! Good thing he is on his way home tonight for a week! Woot Woot! Anyway here is a bunch of pictures of our little one. I never knew I could love something this much. He is the best thing in our little world, we don't know what we ever did without him! Oh and we also celebrated my birthday on Sunday! I'm finally the big 2-0!

He is the cutest thing ever! When was he born and how much did he weight and all that other stuff. It is way tuff in the beginning, I think more so after you have a c-section. I came home and just cried you feel so helpless because you cant move and do what you could if you had him the natural way. It get better I promise and if you get bored you could always call me, it is so nice to have someone other then your baby and husband to talk too.

Cute kids must run in the family! He is adorable and it was fun seeing you last weekend! We need to take his pics sometime soon! Don't worry, the hormones will balance out and soon you will feel back to normal! Newborns are just a lot of work though, so it's a big adjustment, but you such a great mom already!
