Happy Birthday Oliver!

It was 2 years ago last night that I went to the hospital to be induced into labor. When I got there they said I was already 3cm and 50% effaced. No need for cervical ripening!

You were born at 5:00 in the morning after I went from 6cm to 10 in about 20 minutes. Your dad had to make the emergency call to the nurses station and said, “somebody better get in here soon!” Its a good thing your shoulder was stuck (not so good at the time), otherwise you would have just fallen out. Your decention was so fast that you bruised your face as you fell through the birth canal. Lets just say you came out looking like a different race. On your bassinet there was a sign that said, “blue face,” so they wouldn’t think you stopped breathing.

2 days later we brought you home from the hospital, only to have to return 3 days later, because your billirubin  levels were too high.

Luckily everything turned out ok.

You are the sweetest little boy, and I love you very much!

    Awww! So sweet. I remember how scary that was with the jaundice and that weird lamp you had to use for it. Happy Birthday to him!
