Milo 2 Week Stats

First off I really need to Thank all the wonderful Friends and Family that have been so wonderful to us since Milo's birth. We received meals every night for a week! Thank you so much for that...I don't cook so we really enjoyed the meals and leftovers. Yummy! Milo has received countless cards and gifts from so many people that love him. Thank you so much for thinking about us and for showing so much support and Love. I have felt so incredibly blessed having Milo join our family and this out pouring of love has reminded me how blessed I am to have such wonderful friends and family too. Judi I put a pic on here of Milo with your cute cookie bouquet! It was adorable, thank you so much for sending it :)  Brenda the bears you sent were adorable and River already thinks they are both his  :) Learning to share is something we still need to master. Milo always needs to be holding something while he sleeps and it has been hard because he always wants to hold me, but I put your teddy bear in his arms and he loved it! Thanks for making them such a sweet gift!
Milo had his 2 week appointment (he was really only 11 days old) and circumcision. Let me just tell you, if you can do the circ. in the hospital, do! We did with Riv and it was no big deal. We tried to with Milo but they said they don't do it in the hospital was so horrible to watch! All I have to say is that is so messed up! I was covering Milo's eyes the whole time and holding his hand, it was awful, but he did pretty darn good considering.

Wet & Wild

Wet and Wild pretty much describes River in his new pool! Grandma bought him a kiddie pool the other day and River loves it! Yesterday was probably one of the only days that has been warm enough to even use it. He thought it was the best thing! He kept trying to splash grandma and I and laughed when we would scream after getting wet :) What a cutie! Hopefully we will get more warm days so he can enjoy more days in his pool.

Feeling Blessed

How could I not feel so blessed with these two sweeties around! Man my heart is so full of gratitude that I get to be the Mommy of these two wonderful, adorable boys! These boys have made my life more fulfilled then I ever thought possible. I just hope I can be the kind of Mommy they both deserve, I have a lot of learning to do still! All I know now is I love them both more then words can express and will try my best to teach them the important things in life. 
I Love you Boogs and Moogs!

Brotherly Love

I'm loving this pic of my two boys!

Riv is still a little hesitant about touching Milo, but he did try to snuggle him :)

Riv tried to share his toy! So cute!!

 What a drunk monkey! lol!

It was super sweet to see River trying to share his toys with Milo! He was a little confused why Milo wouldn't hold them, he kept trying to put them in his hand! I am so proud of Riv and how great he has been with Milo. No jealousy yet, except maybe a little if Daddy is holding Milo.
Milo is so great! He eats, sleeps and rarely cries. That is during the day, the nights are weird. He cries a lot and eats a lot, very little sleep at night. I can't quiet figure out whats going on? Any of you had kids behave that way?  Great during the day, not so great at night.

River Meets his Little Brother!

Love Riv's face :)

We were pleasantly surprised that River was SO EXCITED to meet his brother for the first time! Riv had come to the hospital, but was totally asleep, so bringing Milo home was there first encounter. We were a little nervous how this meeting was going to play out. It was so cute though! River seemed to know this was his brother, just like he had been waiting to meet him! The videos are priceless! We feel beyond blessed with this expansion of our family! We all love and adore you Milo, Welcome to the World sweet boy :)

Our sweet Boy has arrived! We didn't think we could take the wait any longer! :)
My original due date was June 22nd, but I was scheduled for an induction for June 16th. I was very grateful for that, especially where I went 10 days over with River. I was told the hospital would call us early in the morning and let us know what time to come in. We got the call at 5:30 am and they let us know we should be there at 6:15 am. I was really glad that we got such an early slot, just in case it was a long labor, like before. Tony and I got up and got River, still asleep, over to my parents house and were off to the Hospital. We arrived right on time, but didn't actually get in the room until about 7 or 7:30. We got right to business and started me on pitocin to get my contractions coming so I could start dilating past the 3cm I was currently at. Long story short, the pitocin made me contract but wasn't causing me to dilate. Luckily, I couldn't feel the contractions at this point. They had the pitocin flowing as high a level they are allowed (20) and still no dilation. They decided they were going to break my water in hopes that that may help me start dilating. That didn't work either! I think the nurses were a little dumb founded. Finally, I started to feel some contractions they weren't super strong yet. I remembered when I had River after I got the epidural was when I finally started to dilate. So I figured I should get the epi even though I wasn't in a lot of pain yet. But, of course when I asked for it the Dr. was in a C-section and I was going to have to wait for him. That was fine, until they started getting stronger! Luckily, he wasn't too long, I think it was only an hour. Finally got the epi and shortly dilated to a 5. I got so numb on my left side! I couldn't even move my leg...I felt like a total idiot! Well, once I got the epi things started moving VERY quickly. The pitocin was still on full blast, and we quickly learned that was not good for Milo. His heart rate really started to dip during contractions. The nurse turned it down to a 10. But his heart rate now was starting to stay low instead of jumping back up after contractions. Things started to get a little scary and very rushed at this point. Another nurse came in to help. They quickly got me on oxygen and turned off the pitocin completely, but I was contracting on my own now so that really didn't help much. The nurses quickly decided they needed to get internal monitoring on Milo. Still things were not looking good for Milo and I was only a 5 still. Literally a few minutes after they put the internal monitoring on the other nurse decided that they need to put fluid back in my uterus to see if that would help cushion Milo from possibly smashing his own cord. She quickly started that and said she wanted to check me again, and the other nurse told her she just had and I was a 5 still. The nurse said she though maybe I was moving fast and wanted to check even though it had only been a few minutes. Sure enough, she was right I was a +9. I could tell both of them were relived to hear this. They both quickly said, we are getting the Dr. here now and this baby is getting delivered! Luckily by the time the my Dr. (who is great!) got there (which was very quickly), the fluid was started to help Milo's heart rate a little. Dr. Savage walked in checked me I was a 10 and said let get this guy out :) I was very happy she was there and that Milo was just going to be out of his stressful and scary situation once and for all! I think I pushed 3 or 4 times and he was out! We quickly discovered why his heart rate was so low, the cord was wrapped around his neck! My poor little guy :( But, he made it here healthy and strong! Although this delivery had some drama, it was a million times better then my delivery with River!!! It was quick and relatively easy :)
