On Thursday July 10 I woke up at five thirty having contractions, at eight I decided that they were probably the real thing so we went to the hospital to get checked. I was dialated to a 3 but still pretty thick. The Dr. came at about 2 o'clock and broke my water. He said that I was about 5 cm dialated but still pretty thick. When the nurse came to check me at four o'clock she was so surprised that I was fully dialated and fully efaced. She said that she was going to get the Dr. on his way. After about eight pushes Nixon was born!
He was 7 lbs 3 oz, ad 21 inches long. He has a ton of dark hair, and as you can see in the pictures it's a total mohawk! They tried to smooth it down but it wouldn't. It's a perma hawk! He was so alert for like the first six hours after he was born. He would just sit there and stare, take in the new surroundings. His dad would tease him cause he had a huge cone shaped head when he was born, if you've seen Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull thats what Blake said his head looked like. The crystal skull. Daddy was so worried that it would stay that way forever. It's gone down dramatically since then. And he has the longest feet and fingers. He is so perfect. I am so blessed that Heavenly Father trusted me enough to have this child and to raise him. It's amazing that everything can change so fast when a miracle enters your life. He is a miracle to me.
