11 weeks ago

It's been a reeeaaally long time since I wrote last! I kinda had some stuff going on ya know?! Well Zach made his debut on November 15, 2009 at 7:00am. He weighed 7lb 5oz and was 20in long. I had been having contractions that weekend, but they would stop and resume, stop and resume. Eventually I was having them about every 5 minutes so we called the hospital. The nurse that I had seen 2 nights before (false labor) told me to wait 2-3 more hours to make sure they didn't stop. I was so upset I made Doug talk to her. She then said give it about 30 more minutes to see if they kept up. Right after he hung up my water broke! So at 2am I went to the hospital, 3:30 I recieved my epidural, I slept from 4-6am and they checked me at 6am, I started pushing at 6:15am and he came into the world at 7am! He was so beautiful...still is! I couldn't believe that I was a mommy at that very moment. Amazing.
Since then we have just been enjoying every moment with him. He is 11 weeks now and is growing like a little weed!! At his 2 month appointment he weighed 12lb 8oz and was 23.5in long. I know he is much more now!! I quit work so I could stay home with him full time. I'm still going to school, as is Doug. We are super busy these days and I feel like we never see eachother. He keeps telling me that we have to just put up with it for a couple more years. I suppose he's right. It just seems like a very LONG time away from now.
Our holidays were wonderful. My dad and Don were here for Thanksgiving and that was nice. Zach made out like a little bandit for Christmas! Spoiled little boy!! We didn't see Tommy this year for Christmas, but he did come after Zach was born and we've seen him again since then and I think he's coming back in a couple of weeks.
Zach is going to be baptized on Easter Sunday. I'm looking forward to that and seeing friends and family that we haven't seen in a while.
Overall, everyone is doing well here. I've posted a couple of pictures and videos for your "viewing pleasure"...I'm going to try and get some food!
Love,
Sarah
