How he came...

I am a horrible blogger but I have intentions of catching up on the last couple of months, we have had a lot going on! I was thinking the other day, I told everyone a fewt things about Alec and how he arrived but haven't gone into details. I hope you'll humor me. :)

Alec's name was chosen simply because Aarone and Amber are born in August and we thought it would be nice to follow the "A" name tradition. His middle name Genero is Tony's Grandfather's name and Tony's middle name except for Tony's is just simply done with a "G". Tony and our kids all have an association with the number 7 related to their birthdays, it's strange but true. So, when Alec was born on August 7 it just was meant to be!

Alec was due on August 16 but made his grand entrance a week or so early. I didn't complain although it was quite humorous he came at that time. For those who don't know, I was an Event Manager for Stampin' Up!. My main event I focus on is our yearly convention typically held in Salt Lake City. It can range from 2500-6000 people. We all had a good laugh when I found out I was due a week after my event.

My boss kept saying, "If you can make it to Thursday then it will be great." He even got my a scooter to ride around the convention center. I was very embarrased but grateful in the end. I had a doctor's appointment on that Thursday the 6th and my doctor told me it would be at least 2 more weeks. She even made me schedule 2 appointments for the next couple weeks. Well, Tony and I were sleeping down at the Hotel Monaco in Salt Lake that night and I woke up about 11 and told Tony I think my water broke. After about a half hour of deciding if my water really had broken, we packed up our stuff and headed to the hospital.

Sure enough Alec was on his way. After almost 16 hours of labor I never dialated enough to push him out. They decided to do a C-section around 5:30 pm and Alec was born at 6:15 pm. I was just grateful to have him out! Needless to say, Alec waited until Thursday to be born.

I can't believe that was 8 weeks ago tomorrow. He is getting so big and chubby. He is starting to smile and talk to us. We just love him to death.

Now I need to update everyone on all the other things happening around here, never a dull moment!
