Little Man is Two Years Old Today

Two Years ago today Little Man came into this world... May 14, 2005 at 11:15am he was 7 lbs 9oz and 21 1/2 inches long.. This making him my biggest baby.(Princes was 6lbs 2 oz and 19 1/2 inches, Mr Man was 6 lbs 2 1/2 oz and 20 inches, and Sweet Pea was 6 lbs 3oz and 19 inches)
He had dark brown hair and big blue eyes, this top picture of him was when he was only one day old and the bottom one was shortly after he was born.. He was welcome into this world by doctors and nurses and he didn't get to meet daddy till 15 to 20 minutes after he was born and didn't get to meet mommy until he was 2 hours old.

you see after being in strong labour for 18 hours with him I was about ready to get to the pushing stage when my doctor thought he would break my water in order to get me there a little bit fast.. This was nothing new I had my water broke with both the girls.. ONLY right when they broke my water out came Little Mans cord. Next thing you know I felt the worst pain ever as the doctor had to go up and hold Little Mans off his cord and hold his cord open until they got the OR ready for my emergency c-section. I didn't have an IV in my arm and I didn't have any sort of pain medication at this point, which was a 1st for me.. Normally I had got the IV the moment I stepped foot into the hospital and was asking for the epidural not too long after that. ONLY this time I was at a different hospital, a birthing center with big whirl pools and showers in each room and I was using those for pain management and just hadn't felt the need for the IV or epidural.. BUT because of the fact I didn't have anything like that in me, when they took me to the OR for the emergency c-section they had to put me totally under, there was no time to give me the epidural or spinal so that I could have been awake, they needed to move fast because both my life and Little Mans life was at stake. So I missed my sons birth, and after labouring all night long and being knocked out cold I didn't wake up fulling until 2 hours after Little Man was born.
Honestly I think I would have slept alot longer except Little Man was very very hungry and screaming his head off. DH was telling the nurses just to give him a bottle of formula but thankfully the nurses knew from my birth plan paper work that I wanted to nurse him. So they were going to have me nurse him even if I was still dead to the world.. I woke up to a nurse trying to latch Little Man onto me.. Tell Ya What, I wasn't to friendly to that poor nurse.. LOL. I think I screamed at her "What are you doing". It tool a few minutes but I did wake up and was able to feed my baby but most of that 1st day is blurry to me.
