So, I just had my 3rd baby. Isn't he fun? Oh I just love newborns. They are so cuddly, fragile, sleepy (except at night), and precious. It's amazing to see how fresh and new they are and how they literally know nothing about the world except how to breathe, suck, swallow, poop, cry, and a few other things like make your heart melt.
Bridger joined our family on Friday, July 1st at 7:29 am. It was a scheduled C-Section, so there's not much of a story to tell ;) we got to the hospital at 5:30 am, checked in, the hospital was busy so they scrambled to find me a room. We got all set up, I was sooooo nervous. The anesthesiologist (anes) put me at ease, he was so wonderful. He made sure that all of my fears were addressed and he made sure that I knew he was going to make sure I didn't feel anything. We went into the O.R. and he gave me a spinal tap. It felt so weird. I started to get numb. 15 min later the doctor was in the room ready to deliver the baby. During the surgery I started getting really nauseous, worst feeling ever!!! I did not want to barf while being operated on! I told my anes. and he brought a barf bag and told me he was putting anti-nausea medicine in my I.V. and I didn't barf! Woot woot! Nausea went away. Then all of a sudden Dr. says "One push and then we'll have a baby"....I felt a little bit of pressure, and then there is was, the little cry of Bridger. The Dr. said he was peeing as he came out hahaha. I'd pee my pants too if I was being born ;) Then they cleaned him off while I was being sewn up and I didn't get to see him for what seemed like forever! Jordon finally brought me a picture of him to look at. Then after they got him all cleaned off, Jordon brought him in and put his face by my face. Oh, it was such a precious moment. My sweet little boy that I had carried for 9 months was finally here! And as calm and cute as ever!
The time in the hospital was awesome. Every time the kids came to visit, Asher was adorable. He'd say things like "Ooohhhh, he's so cute" and "ohhhh, look how cute he is". It was so fun to hear Asher love him so much. Chloe couldn't have cared less hahaha. She was just like whatevs. But it was pretty stressful when the kids were there, man, they are full of energy. It was so nice to have a few days of silence with our new little Bridger man. Ever since we've been home we've had a lot of help. The inlaws have taken the kids a few days and my mom has watched them during the day while my husband is at school. Now Asher is at Bear Lake with my parents and I have 2 kids....which is surprisingly easy. Chloe is a little angel without her big brother here bugging her all day. We'll see how next week goes. I'm starting to feel like I can do things, and next week will be my first week with all 3 kids....it'll be interesting. I pray for patience, obedient children, and more patience.
