Since Quentin was born so late, the girls didn't get to meet him Monday night. We kept them home from school for a half day so we could have some family time.
I love Gaby's big smile. She already has a special bond with this lil guy. She comes home from school and just hold him.
Kendal was cracking me up- she couldn't stop giggling. She loved holding Q and didn't want to give him back.
Grandma Dee stayed with the little kids while we were in the hospital. She made sure Mia got to school and kept the kids fed and house kept up! Huge thank you for filling in for us!
May 12th... getting ready to check in at midnight to start the induction process. I was 37 weeks when we scheduled his birth.
Dustin came up the next morning after kids were on their way to school and Grandma Dee had Kenni and Mia. We did the pill to soften my cervix and the medication to start the contractions. By 9:30am contractions were intense and I was only at a 2. By the time I reached a 4, it was around 6:00. I was frustrated, tired, hurting, and ready to be done. Later that evening, I got an epidural and was getting some relief. Around 10:30 pm, I was feeling some strong contractions but not needing to push. At 10:45 I was ready to get him out. I was at an 8. By 11:00 I was at a 10, the doctor just got into our room and I started pushing. I had 2 hard pushes and by the 3rd one Q was here at 11:05pm.
After his birth, he had to get his lungs checked out since he was early. He was doing some funky breathing when he first came out. Thankful he was okay.
