Highlight Reel: Oh August

I was pretty convinced when I wrote my last post that we were only a couple weeks away from welcoming Reid into our family. And yet we are nearing the end of August and Reid seems to have very little desire to arrive. I guess he is pretty comfortable in his little cocoon! Technically I still have a week left until my due date but I was sure he would come early. My intuition was wrong apparently! We had a false alarm a week ago; despite the fact I was contracting four minutes apart for seven hours they were not causing labor to progress and so we were sent home from the hospital. Turns out I was slightly dehydrated and the contractions were Braxton Hicks. Since then the contractions have come and gone and we don't seem any closer to Mr. Reid letting us know he is ready to arrive. I was measuring three weeks behind and was sent for an ultrasound to make sure everything was okay and it is. Reid is measuring at 6 1/2 - 7 lbs according to the ultrasound and is right on track.

Everett's 1st Birthday Letter

Dear Everett,

It's so hard to believe that one year ago today your dad and I had just welcomed you into the world and were enjoying each and every moment with you.With your first breath you took our breaths away and changed our lives forever. I'll never, ever forget the moment when my water broke while standing in line at Hershey's Chocolate World and racing to the hospital. I'll always remember hearing your dad say as it came closer and closer to the time where you were finally going to come that the sun was coming up. And the moment your little body was laid on me and I saw you for the very first time will forever stand out as one of the greatest moments of my life.
