He's here...

YAY!! I am finally have some energy to post some pics! Colton Matthew Stucki was born December 3, 2008 at 1:09 pm. I got into the hospital at about 7:00 pm on December 2, and they started me on Cytotec(sp) which is a pill they put up there to soften your cervix every 4 hours. So...after a long night of laying and waiting, at 8 am. the doctor came and broke my water and started me on pitocin. Wow...from that moment, I started having contractions every 2 minutes. I went from 2 cm. dialated to 6 cm. in an hour. Finally, I decided I wanted an epiderall. I was really glad I made that decision, although I felt the nurses were kind of forcing it upon me. So, after about an hour I got the epiderall and fell fast asleep! I was so relieved because 2 hours of contractions with no break was NO fun! So..my mom and matt kept checking and I was still having contractions every 1-2 minutes. Anyway, I told the nurse to come check me again after an hour and a half, and sure enough I was dialated to a 10. She said, get ready to push. So, I only pushed for 30 minutes and there he was!! The nurse told me I would have to push for 1-2 hours, but I was not about to do that. Anyway, here he is moments after birth...such an amazing experience. Matt and I didn't even know what to say or do after they layed him on me..wow! He is amazing and it is such a miracle how it all works so perfectly!
So..he weighed 7 lbs. 13 oz. and 21 inches long--that is exactly what I was!!
Here is after his bath once he finally got settled...His hair was really curly at first, but now he's got a little spike going at the top!
He loves to suck his fingers and constantly is putting them up by his mouth.
So, when I got home I got a nice nap while my mom "babysat" He ended up falling asleep on her and they both had nice nap too!!
All swaddled up!
I didn't really want to put this picture on, but you have to have it for the memories! This was after they cleaned and weighed him and brought him back to me! Matt was so amazing during the whole thing, and I'm so glad he was able to be there. It was an experience we will never forget! I came home today at about noon and was soo glad to get out of the hospital away from the never ending nurses!! My mom is here helping for the next week, and I am soo grateful because Matt goes out of town on Monday :( Anyway, his parents did a big photo shoot so hopefully I will have more pictures to post soon!!
