A picture from just after Cedi was born…Here’s Cedi on her first birthday…looks pretty excited about her cake!Cedi when she turned 2! I had to put these pictures up like I did on Capri’s second birthday! The picture on the left is me right before I went to the hospital to have Cedi (Jared also wanted his picture taken…) and then me with Cedi today…the day she turned 3!
Happy Birthday to my beautiful baby… Mercedi Rose! I’ll see how much of her ‘birth story’ I can remember. We actually went into the hospital on November 28th. I was being induced because my blood pressure was high. They tried something first that they let sit for the night to try and get things going…nothing really happened. They tried another thing in the morning…nothing really happened. Then they decided to try the Pitocin with the warning that, “If this doesn’t work we may be sending you home.” This was not an option for me! They started the pitocin at 1:30. Labor started immediately. It went so fast that I didn’t even get the epidural I desperately wanted. I had my beautiful baby girl, Mercedi Rose, at 5:30pm just four hours after labor began, on November 29th, 2006. She was 6 lbs 13 oz (the doctors had thought she would be in the 9 lb range at my ultrasound the previous Friday) but she was 20-inches long! Long and skinning…same as today.
