Stetson Cort Taylor

Stetson Cort Taylor
Well our newest addition to the family officially arrived on Saturday April 25Th, 2009 at 10:06 P.M. He was 7 lbs. 6 oz. and 19.5 inches long.
When I first saw him (along with my mom and husband) we all thought he looked just like Odin...and then when all the family was aloud to come in the room they all thought the same thing.
Now he is a few days old and with every day he grows into his own person...within the first 24 hours we didn't think he looked so much like Odin.
He is such a good boy...I was worried that with Odin being so easy that this one I wouldn't get so lucky on but he is a very good boy...he doesn't cry hardly at all (just like Odin)...I think that he likes to be held a lot more then Odin did but I have no problem with big brother Odin has a little problem with me holding him all the time...I have to make sure he gets his time too....
The delivery was half the time it took with Odin and I made it to a 6-same as I did with Odin-before I asked for the wonderful epidural...when they did start me on the Pitocin it really got things going fact after the first half an hour of being on it the nurse came in and upped the dosage and I had a 4 minute contraction that sent heart rates into some scary numbers and the nurse had to run in and turn it back down and we didn't ever turn it back up...that contraction was not a fun one...
I had my husband-Chuck-, my mom, and my sister in there with me (they were also there with Odin) and then out in the hall was My Dad and Brother (Matthew), My Grandparents (Memmotts) My Aunts Launa, Hope, Pam, and Gina, and My cousin Melanie.
My other Cousin McKenzie was a life saver and she spent the night at our home with the little man Odin and we couldn't have asked for someone better...we owe her big...Odin can be quit the handful and she did a great job...Thanks a tonz McKenzie.
Before we went to the hospital we were all at my Grandparents at a family get together and I have such great family members...My Aunts Hope and Launa, My cousin Amy, and my mom and sister took me walking around the block to make sure the contractions were real...which then we timed and they were 5 to 6 minutes apart and I am selfish and really wanted to have this baby on the 25Th...and so I did what I could to get them worked and I am thankful for my family and for them taking time to walk with me and be there for me instead of just pushing me off and doing what they want...My family ROCKS!!!
So I got my selfish wish and I had him on the 25Th-so now I have a boy on May 25Th and April I just have to keep it going...hee hee...
For those family members who are wondering who was closest on the guesses here you go...for the time of delivery...Hope was at 10:25, Launa was at 10:27, and Weston was at 10:28.
for the weight: Rachel was at 7 lbs 5 oz., Angie was at 7 lbs 8 oz., Amy was at 7 lbs. 9 oz., My dad was right on and guessed 7 lbs. 6 oz., and Dan was at 7 lbs. 8 oz.
Well I have probably wrote a lot in this blog and hopefully you can make sense of it all...Thank you so much for all the love and support and for the examples I have in my family...Thanks for all the well wishes and the visits and the gifts...I love all my family and don't know how I would do any of this without my good family and my good friends...
Thanks to everyone
