OMGravy, they are 2

The the first half of this story, check it out here

After shocking the nurse, I was shown to my room and was swabbed to make sure it was my water that broke.  The nurse said, "Yup honey, your in labor can I help you with the pain?"  Again I said, "What pain?"  she laughed and walked out.  This was a little after 7.  My doctor came in, thank God she was there that day because if she wasnt I probably would have freaked.  When I saw her, I began to cry.  She asked me what was wrong and all I could say was "Im so sorry, Im so sorry, I guess I couldnt keep them in any longer, Im so sorry"  She laughed and said that since I was at 36 weeks, on the dot, she did not except any issues and for me to stay calm.

Thats exactly what I did.  I still felt NO pain.  Nothing.  Not even a flipping cramp.  We had some time so I wrote down a list of things to get from the house and sent the husband home.

Looking back, that wasnt the smartest thing

20 minutes later, I was in a robe with my bare ass hanging out and jamming to some music.  The nurse came in and asked how I was doing and if I needed anything. I said no and she said Ok are you ready.  He wasnt back yet but I figured they would wait for him.  So I walked (Yes walked) myself to the c-section room. giddy as a school girl.  At this point, Im like yea this is nothing, I can do this 100 more times if needed, seriously I still had no pain.

I got my shot, which hurt like hell and laid down.  It was about that time that Josh got back, which I found out later if he was 2 minutes later he would have missed it.  I smelled smoke and gave him a dirty look and said "Did you really just go smoke when your kids about to be born?" In which he responded, umm no, thats you.  They were cutting me open.

I felt nothing.  I could see my lower half being tugged back and forth but I felt absolutely nothing.  He jumped up and yelled "OMG do you have any idea what they are doing to you?  Do you really not fell that?  OMG this is so cool."  Apparently watching someone gut me like a fish is entertainment.

At 8:14, this sweet baby graced us with her presence.  Silence.  I panicked, then I heard her scream loud enough for the whole floor to hear.  Josh looked at me and said, "Thats your daughter" The plan was for her to come first then about 5 minutes later, he would join the party.  He had other plans.  I heard her scream and then I heard "Oh wait hes coming"  The next thing I heard was two screaming babies and a tear fell from my eye.  Josh grabbed my hand and asked if I was ok and I said Im fine go meet your kids.  Your KIDS, oh man we have 2 kids now.

They both weighed 5 lbs 2 oz.  Since they were a month early, they whisked them away to make sure everything checked out.  By the time I got sewed up and back in my room, they were there.  Our lives had changed forever.

We went from a family of 2 to 4 in less than 60 seconds.

I cant believe how much they have grown. In one short year, they became little people.

And today, they are toddlers.  They will always be my babies that couldnt wait any longer to introduce themselves to the world.  I wish I could stop time because I know they will be moving out before I know it.

Happy 2nd Birthday Elyse and Cole
