Belated Birthday

My Valentine Baby turned three this year!  Remembering back...Elliana was 17 months old and having the worst night of sleep in her life.  I finally got her down and walked to my bed at midnight.  I sat on the bed and immediately my contractions started.  I figured I had all night so I thought I would try to get some sleep before waking Chris.  Andy had different ideas.  He only has a go and stop button and his go button was pushed.  Contractions started at 3 minutes apart so I went down stairs to call my mom who was going to drive 4 hours to come watch Elliana.  I think it was about 12:30 now.  I decided I better wake up Chris.  He rolled over and said, "Now? You'ver got to be kidding?"  And fell back a sleep before he finished talking.  I woke him again and then called my doctor.  I also called my neighbor to come over and stay with Ana until my mom arrived.  It was 1:00 now.  I was moving pretty slow with all contractions still 1 to 3 minutes apart.  Chris was finally up and my neighbor had arrived. We left for the hospital about 1:30, the dr said he thought it was fine if I wanted to come now!  What!  I was coming whether he thought it was fine or not!  Since it was the middle of the night, we had to use the ER enterence.  No big deal except for the mile and half walk through the entire hospital to get the right wing!  I stopped every few feet for the contractions to pass.  When we finally made it up there the nurse sent me to triage.  She said I was ready to go and got me a room.  It was about 2:30 am.  The doctor came in a few times, but the nursed did a great job of keeping him away since I wanted to go natural and he likes to not.  He came in just in time to pull on a glove and catch Andy at 3:00 am on Feburary 14, 2008!
Andy is so sweet and loving, not just because he is a Valentine boy, but because he is my amazing Andy! He can go and go. He has serious skills with a ball, any ball. Speech is still difficult for him, but he is trying and learning new words every day. When he is scared he asks us to pray with him and hold his hands. He loves his siblings and loves to be a big brother. Wrestling with his Daddy is a must every day! I am so proud that boy!







Andy asked to go to Entrainment Juction for his birthday, with Grandma Melissa and Papa.
