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!!!!
