Yes, I realize it is January 1, 2012. But December 18th changed my world. Actually it all started on December 17th...the day I went into labor. I remember everything pretty vividly still- which I hope I always do.
Let me first rewind to Friday, 12/16, the day of my 41 week appointment. My original due date was 12/10, and that came and went like it was nothing. So Friday morning I drove myself into the doctors office and PRAYED that I was showing some signs of having this little boy. I left the doctors office crying. I was still barely 1cm dilated, the same I'd been since my 36 week check. I also left with an induction appointment for the following Monday.
I went into labor Saturday morning around 2:00am, and roughly 35 hours later, we had our baby boy in our arms.
Landon Cole Perdue was born on December 18, 2011 at 12:54pm. He weighed 7lbs 5oz and was 21 inches long. And he is perfect.
We are all doing great- so in love, so blessed by this healthy baby boy.
Hope everyone had a Merry Merry Christmas, and the happiest New Year :) Here's to 2012!
