Alaya getting all geared up.
So sorry it has taken me almost 3 weeks to post pictures of our new lil man! He is doing really good with eating and sleeping. Its kinda funny how I am not so paranoid with him as I was with Alaya. Just cause I have been through it before and I know how things work now. Its easy for me to sleep through his lil noise making and only wake up when he is crying to be fed and changed. It is a lot of fun to have both him and Alaya. I thought it was going to a lil hard but over all it is pretty easy. Alaya is doing really well with him. She helps me out a lot and it seems like she listens better to me since Cannon has been here. WEIRD!! Alaya loved Christmas this year. I like to wait to put out presents until Christmas Eve night then she wakes up Christmas morning to a new thing. She woke up this year and said " OH MY GOODNESS!!!" She was pretty excited that Santa came. She also asked me if "Santa ate some cookies?" that we had made the night before. haha!! She had to go see Santa a couple of times cause the first time she was too shy to tell him what she wanted, but the second time she was so scared but she told him what she wanted. Adam is enjoying his new job still. He stays pretty busy now that the other ambulance service went out of business, his ambulance service started picking up all their calls. So when he gets home from a 24 he is pretty tired. He also has been picking up a lot of extra shifts as well. So he is staying very busy!! I am doing pretty good. Just got over a really bad bladder infection and then I am now trying to get rid of mastitis in my breast. It has been one thing after another haha! We are all doing good and can't complain. We have Internet now so you can expect more updates from the Smith Home. We love and miss you all and hope everyone has a Happy New Year!!!

Cannon Michael Smith

So sorry everyone!!! Cannon Michael Smith was born on Dec 11, 2009 at 10:48 pm.7lbs 14oz 21 inches long. My plug broke early morning at 5am started having contractions. They were getting worse at 5pm about 5 mins apart sitting standing it was 2 mins apart. So I sat cause Adam was ending his last shift for the week and wouldn't be home till 6pm. We had friends come over and we were playing games. Yes I know Crazy!!! So abut 8:30 the contractions were 2 mins apart and I was really waiting for my water to break before I went to the hospital. Well at 9pm I told Adam I need to go cause I couldn't sit, stand or breath. So I called my sister and she came up and stayed with Alaya. Got to the hospital around 9:30. The nurse checked me and I was 7cm, water still didnt break. Checked me again in 20 mins and I was 8.5 cm. Doc came in and broke my water. I couldnt get any pain meds in my IV because I was so far along dialated so I had to go all natural with him. Cause the meds could have made him to stop breathing. After water was broken there was about 4 hard contractions then I pushed for 22 mins. I did have to get cut again cause he wasnt coming out any other way haha! Ya the doc numbed then cut, And YES I felt it all because the numbness did not take effect before he cut. Then Cannon came out!!! He looks just like Alaya did when she was born but a boy version WAY CUTE!!! He has been an awesome baby. Sleeps, eats and poops GREAT!!! Awesome personality!! We are so happy and blessed!!! I will post pictures when I can use a computer where I can. I am at the library. Thanks for everything everyone!!! We love and hope you all have a MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!
