Welcome to the World, Cooper!

So, Thursday, I get a text from my pregnant sister, Kristi, saying that her bp was high and that she was being admitted to the hospital for observation. I didn’t go over there because her due date wasn’t until the 12th so I figured they would just send her home. I got a text later that afternoon saying that they were going to induce labor that night/early morning. So I took off work Friday and made the hour drive to the hospital. I got there around 7:30 a.m. I brought my kindle, phone, and ipod because I figured it was going to be while. The hospital’s internet was down (well the public wifi anyway) but cell phone service was great so I was able to text and facebook. I get stir crazy if I have to sit still for too long with nothing to do.
My parents, my other sister, and I went out for a bit to get some lunch and to do a little shopping. I wanted to get something for the baby, but my sister didn’t find out the gender (her choice) so I had no clue what to buy. We went back to the hospital and sat around for a bit. The labor wasn’t progressing and so they decided on a csection.
At 5:53 p.m. my niece, Cooper Dylan was born. She was 6lbs 6oz and 20.5 inches long. She is beautiful! It almost makes me want to have another one, until I hear my sister say she didn’t get any sleep. Then I’m like “Nah, I’m good.” I enjoy sleeping 6-8 hours a night without having to get up every 2 hours.
I did go out and buy Coop some clothes though. I was so excited to be able to buy something that wasn’t gender neutral lol. My youngest sister, Courtney, did the same thing, so Cooper should be good on clothes for a little while. Whenever I buy her something else, I’ll make sure it’s 0-3 months because I think she has plenty of newborn stuff.
Oh and my kids, especially Rhiannon and Trey are ecstatic about having a cousin. Trey got to hold her and he is asking when we can go see her again. I wish my sister didn’t live an hour away. I would probably be over there all the time if she lived closer. I could just sit and hold her for hours! She loves to be cuddled and hates whenever she has to get her diaper changed. Actually, she doesn’t like being moved around at all. If she’s comfy in someone’s arms, she starts fussing whenever she’s handed to someone else.
I am supposed to be taking some newborn photos for her. I have to get Will to build my background stand, get a bean bag chair, and get some stuff for the background. I am so excited! I will share those pics on here, as long as my sister doesn’t mind. So yep, that was my weekend, very busy, but wonderful!

Only my kid would be afraid of this….

Sorry if this posts offends anyone, but I am a mom and well this is just one of those stories I “had” to share 😀
Do you know what my 8 year old son is afraid of? No, not spiders, snakes (though he doesn’t really care for those either)…tampons. My son is afraid of tampons. Now, he has no clue what they are used for. He didn’t get any further than reading the part of the box that says “may cause TSS-Toxic Shock Syndrome”. So, since he’s 8 years old and takes things literal, he thinks that just by touching one, he will get ill. If he sees someone goes into my bathroom, he promptly warns them “Don’t touch the tampons!” And he doesn’t say TAM pons he says it like “tampns” so that makes it even more hilarious. I haven’t explained to him what they are used for, but at his age, I don’t really think it’s necessary for him to know. He has asked “Mom, why do you have those tampons?” as if I have a dangerous weapon in the bathroom or something. I’m sure when he gets older and realizes what they’re for, he’s gonna feel really silly…..
