Woo Hoo! Elias has finally arrived. We have been waiting for this day for quite some time and can't believe it's already come. We are so happy and love our new addition to the family! He has already brought us so much joy, and this is just the beginning!
Elias William Wilcock was born on January 29, 2008 (my birthday) at 11:42p.m. weighing 7lbs. 4oz. And 20 1/4 in. long. So here's the story. On Tuesday, the 29th, Jesse woke me up before he went to work to give me a birthday present. He had printed out a lot of our wedding pictures, which we had failed to do for 2 1/2 years. He also printed out many other pictures for me and put them in an album. What a great surprise! He then headed off to work, so I thought, and I went back to bed. Around 8:30a.m. I see him pull up to our house with flowers & breakfast in his hands. After handing me these things, he had me put on my jacket and follow him outside where he had a BIKE waiting for me. I couldn't believe it! We had joked about getting bikes before but I didn't think he would actually get me one, especially right now. I was so excited and shocked at the same time! It had been a very long time since I had ridden a bike and I forgot how fun they are. Well, Jesse ended up taking the day off and he went with me to my Doctor's appointment. My doctor said I was dialated to a 4 and said she had an opening that night at 7p.m. if I wanted to be induced. To make a long story short, Jesse and I talked it over and decided to take that opening. We spent the rest of the day shopping, cleaning and doing laundry trying to get ready for the baby. We even had time to squeeze in a little bike ride together. I looked so funny riding a bike at 9 months pregnant, but it was so fun. The day went by so fast and we rushed off to the hospital. We arrived at the hospital at 7p.m., they started me on pitocen about 8:30, at 10:40 they broke my water and at 11:42p.m. the baby was born! It really was such a fast delivery compared to the Emma's and I feel like my healing process has been a lot better. Emma has also been handling this older sister business pretty well. She just loves holding Elias and giving him kisses! It is so fun to watch her with him. Overall we are doing great and loving life.
