Brent and I were talking about the day I went into labor, and I remember that day so vividly, it seems like it was just yesterday! I went to the Dr. for my 36 week appointment on Wednesday, and the doctor and I discussed my options for labor since M hadn't flipped yet...we decided that if she did not flip by my due date ( July 24th) I would have a C-section on the 29th. So for the next few days I baked, cleaned, and organized Kenna's room a bit...by Friday I was exhausted and slept all day. I woke up around 10AM, ate (of course), watched some TV, and went back to sleep until 1PM when I woke up because I had to pee...I went to the bathroom, sat down, and nothing happened...I thought well maybe if I lift up my belly a little bit that will take some pressure off of my bladder....well I lifted up that HUGE belly of mine and GUSHHHH, my water broke. At first I wasn't sure if I just had a really full bladder, but when I stood up and the water kept coming, I knew right then I would get to meet my little baby soon enough! I called Brent at work and told him my water broke, but he thought I was joking....after a few times of telling him, "NO BABE! I AM SERIOUS! YOU NEED TO COME HOME!" He finally believed me and rushed home. He arrived in a panic, but with a HUGE smile on his face and helped me back my bag. We headed off to the hospital where I had an emergency C-Section and delivered a 7 lb. 2 oz. precious baby girl at 6:24 PM.
So today we celebrated her birth, the day we were blessed with a healthy, beautiful, smart, and adventurous little girl. I speak for both Brent and myself when I say our lives will never be the same, we are both so happy, and PROUD to be the parents of this amazing little human. Happy Birthday McKenna Renee <3 you make my life beautiful.
