Matthew Michael Warren

He's here!! (I'll post pictures soon...I barely got up the energy to write this)

Matthew was born on 4-23-2010. 6lbs. 10 oz. (a peanut)
Going in for the c section was the most traumatic experience of my life...I nearly passed out while the nurse put the IV in...she blew my vein twice and had to move to the other arm while someone else was on that same arm drawing labs.
Thank God it was time for shift change for the anesthesiologist...The lady leaving the shift did not believe in anti-anxiety meds until the baby was out. Really? It's over by then...that's why they are called "anti-anxiety" So I got a gooood anesthesiologist (sp is horrible) and he gave me good stuff...so much so that I don't remember much. I remember seeing the baby over the curtain and that's about it, but that's all I need to remember.

So after a 3 day stay in the hospital we are home :) Matthew had to stay for a few hours after I was discharged to get some tests ran because he had an episode of his lips turning blue for a little bit...he's okay though :) tests came back fine.

I think God has really blessed me with this one. He has been such a good, content baby. He sleeps a lot and he wakes every 4 hrs. on the dot to eat at night. I guess his name (which we chose at the last minute) suits him well. Matthew - gift from God.

I promise to post pictures later :)

37 weeks

I made it to full term!!! The dr. gave me a date for the c section...April 23. I'm really excited, but very nervous at the same time. Sam and I have been having a very hard time deciding on a name, so Sam has taken the reigns on this one. He said I got to name Samantha so he's going to name the boy. The only two names he will consider are Noah Michael and Logan Michael....he's leaning more towards Noah. I don't really have an opinion either way...I haven't felt very connected to any of the names, so if Sam really likes Noah, then that's what we'll go with. One name I have really liked is Weston Michael. It's a variation of his brother's name, but I think Weston Warren has a cute ring to it. Wow, now that I've written it out, it kinda reminds me of cigarettes...Winstons. So, maybe we won't go with that. I guess we'll know his name when we see him, at least that is what everyone is telling me.

Now, off to organize and get some groceries. I want to look up new recipes and try one out tonight. I'm getting so sick of the same stuff every week. Of course, if it were completely up to me, we would just order pizza.
