1 week old today…

Well, here he is!! Timothy Addison Phillips was born last friday, October 15th at 6:57pm. What a day to remember! We had a c-section scheduled for 3:30, and I learned that this is an estimated time. We had to be at the hospital at 1:30 to start the check in process and get all of the needed medical things done, but I was not actually admitted until 2:15. Everyone we talked to said it was a busy day in the baby delivering business. Good thing we knew one of the nurses (thanks Debbie!!) or else we would have been turned away, having to come back on a not so busy day. (I never knew you could do this…) So thankful we were able to have Timothy that day. I don’t think I would have been able to emotionally handle being sent home to wonder when he would finally make is appearance. Well, 3:30 rolls around and everything is ready to go, we just have to wait for the Dr. to get there. When she does show up, we move into the OR only to find out that we got bumped due to a last minute c-section for a woman who had been pushing for like 3 hours, and we lost our anesthesiologist. (they only have one for l&d) So, here Debbie, Paul, & I are waiting in the OR for our turn to get going, and were about 10-15 min away from our turn when another nurse burst in and told us we needed to get out of the OR because of an emergency prolapsed cord delivery. That got the adrenaline pumping!! So we head back to our room, by now it’s close to 5:30, and I cant help but think we should have a 2 hour old baby by now, and I was getting a little anxious. Leave it to Paul to get me laughing to help relax and calm my nerves. (Thanks babe!!) Debbie came in to let us know that both surgeries were done, (both mama’s and babies were ok) but housekeeping was MIA to clean up both of the OR’s. Well, Super Debbie went to work with another nurse to get the OR cleaned up so we could finally have our baby. At 6:30ish we make that walk again to the OR. This time we finally get to have our baby, no interruptions, no emergencies. I’m always surprised at how long (or should I say short) it actually takes to deliver once the Dr. starts. So, about 3 1/2 hours later then we thought, Timothy came into the world with the highest pitch squeal I have ever heard a newborn make. It was music to my ears! (I think only a mom would say that!) Timothy came in weighing 9 lbs, 9 oz, and 20 1/2 in long. BIG BOY!!! I was shocked when they said how big he was, thinking how did he fit inside of me!! But he did, and I am go happy he came big and strong. Even with his size and my diabetes, his blood sugars were all in the normal level and pretty much stayed that way through our hospital stay. We were released on Sunday, which was such a blessing to be going home so soon. Hospital stays are never fun, and let’s face it, not that restful. (at least for me) So, here we are, a week later, and I am recovering great, Timothy is a great sleeper, going for 5-6 hours at a time before he realizes he’s hungry, and Matthew couldn’t be a better big brother. Matthew adores Timothy. It’s the cutest thing. He loves to hug and kiss and sooth (even help feed) Timothy. I think I have the bestest two boys ever! :) And thank you mom for all of your help this week. I truly don’t know how I would have survived this week with out your help during the day when Paul was at work. I love you. And thank you Paul, you’re the best Dad in the world, and I love how you willing you are to step in and help when I really need you. I love you!

Ok, so I know you’re all wanting to see Timothy, so here are a few of my favorite pictures to far. More to come soon!
