Cade: 8-10 Months

I was induced, a year ago today, at 9:00a.m., I will spare you the lonnnnnng step by step account of my labour but suffice it to say that after two different induction methods, two failed epidurals, meconium inside, 1 cm dilation, and double prolapsed cord and multiple heart beat drops (Cade)-he was not born until 12:16a.m. on Feb 15, 2007 via c-section. Then he was a sweet little lump with a cone shaped head (we still can't figure that one out!). Now he is a little munster who attacks the cat like he has never eaten before. Yes-he tries to eat the cat, instead getting a mouth full of fur. He runs and plays and lifts his arms to be picked up. He waves bye bye and hi and understands "sit" (tub) and "no" (all of the time). He has tantrums that consist of squatting and yelling. He laughs hysterically when you play peek-a-boo or crawl around with him. He is pretty much awsome.

Pretty much. I can't believe that he is almost one already! Friday is also my Mom's birthday and one of my good friend's son's. He will be three. What a great day.

ugh! i too was induced (not today, but a day way into july) and it too was an extreme failure. i got out lucky though. 2 attempts of induction (a mere 24hour hospital stay), my OB decided the bag-o-waters could be popped. (i had dialted and remained 2cm dialated before i hit the hospital) 4 hours later, the boogerbear emerged, conehead Xtreme!!! not so sure about chemical induction next go round...

that daddy shot is awesome!

Julia came via emergency c-section and still had the cone head from the attempt to deliver her naturally.

Your boy is the cutest little guy ever! Ah, so sweet.
