Oh man I can't believe it has already been one week! well On June 10th I went in to be induced and was dilated 4 cm I had antibiotics in for a few hours before they started me on pitocin and I had progressed by myself to 5 cm. a few hours after having the pitocin I was 6 cm and another hour or so later I was still at 6 cm, the contractions were getting kind of hard and since I hadn't changed for the past few hours I asked for pain killers in my IV thinking it would probably be a while for me to get to 10 cm, WRONG!! within 15 minutes of getting the pain killers I felt like I needed to push, the nurse checked me and I was fully dilated, I wish I didn't have the pain killers so I could say I did it all natural, oh well, so two contractions and a few pushes later little Evva was born at 4:01 pm. She was 6 lbs 10oz. and 181/4 inches long. She is healthy and very happy. I felt great after the delivery and have recovered very quickly! we got home from the hospital Thursday the 11th and on friday we all went our for dinner then Michael and I got a babysitter for the boys and took Evva with us to see a movie. I went to church on sunday and everyone was amazed to see me there minus the belly, plus a baby. Evva is a wonderful little baby, she sleeps so well at night and only wakes up about 2-3 times each night to eat then goes right back to sleep. Jonah and Ryker love her and Ryker always comes to give her kisses. I was really worried about Ryker but he is doing very well. I only have tweo pictures loaded on my computer right now but I'll post more later.
Michael and I met when he just got home from his mission and started dating soon after. My mom wasn't too happy with me dating an RM she said he would want to get married and I thought "yeah right" I guess mothers do know best! After casually dating for a while Michael went to Idaho but before he left he broke up with me:( I didn't know why but I was determined not to let it bother me. That night for single adult FHE we picked names from a hat to go on a date with I can't remember my would-be dates name but he had a Corvet and I was excited to ride in it. When I got home Michael called me, I had no idea why since we had just broken up, but I talked to him and told him that I had a date for the upcoming dance, he hung up on me. But he called back and apologized and said the thought of me dating someone else made him sick and he couldn't talk to me. then he asked if I would go to the dance with him if he came back. of course I said yes and he asked me not to date anyone else. I haven't even wanted to and we've been blissfully married for eight years and have been greatly blessed with 4 children, the highlights of my life.
