december 18th

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!


  1. He is so precious! Congratulations!! So happy for you guys :)

  2. Congrats Katie!!! I am so glad he is healthy. Your story sounds so similar to mine.

    Be sure you write it all down, because believe it or not you will forget some of the details.
