My Sweet Sweet Isaac
I really can't believe it, but somehow Isaac is 7. 7!!!!! I honestly have no idea where the last 7 years have gone. He has been a busy, silly, sweet, loving and MISCHIEVOUS boy from the start. My pregnancy with him was pretty normal, and one of the best parts of that pregnancy was being pregnant at the same time as Kami. I was told that he was 99.9% a girl (yeah that was wrong!), and found out that he was a boy on the same day that Kami found out SHE was having a boy!! Those 2 have been inseparable ever since!
On September 24th 2003 I thought I was in labor. I couldn't decide what to do since they were going to start me the next day anyway.......Well, I went in and then the contractions stopped. OF COURSE. But they had gotten a few on the machine so they said I could stay! Travis came up and he and Mike gave me a blessing and we were off! My friend Leah, who has been lucky enough to adopt her 2 kids, was there with us for the labor and delivery. It was fun to share that with her. After my water broke somehow I got amniotic fluid in my blood and started to have some problems. I really think that the blessing saved me. It took a while but then I was ok and it was time to get that little guy out! Everything went perfectly and when they held him up I was completely OVERWHELMED by the spirit. I KNEW that this was a VERY special little guy. I also felt VERY strongly that he has some little brothers still to come :). Oh yeah, and I kept thinking "MAN he looks like Matt!".
Mike went with Isaac to the nursery and while Mike was having fun with our little guy I was getting dropped on the floor by my nurse! She didn't believe that my legs were too numb for me to help get myself into my wheel chair. I told her I couldn't lock my knees. She didn't think I knew what I was talking about. Well I ended up on the floor. She called for help and people came running. They were trying to get me into the chair when another nurse walked in. She yelled "STOP! Her leg is under the chair!". Yeah, I was really sore once that medicine wore off! BUT I had my sweet Isaac to cuddle with, and that made it ALL better!
Even when he's a little stinker he's adorable. I can't imagine life without him! Today was crazy and I feel a little bad that it was his birthday! We had Farmers market and soccer and the Primary Program practice. We finally had everything wrapped up around 5:30 and he decided he wanted to go to Chuck-A-Rama for dinner. After dinner we came home and did presents and cake and now they are all down stairs playing Wii. He seems happy and I have to say, I am SO GLAD that we did his friend party in August! I love you my sweet Iz man!!!!!
