Mothers Day Weekend

Isn't he the most beautiful baby boy! On Mothers Day Korver Jhett Michael Smith came into the world:) Yes, he actually came on my due date. So on Saturday night we were over at Mike's parents house when I started having contractions around 6:30 and they were 10 minutes apart for an hour, and then they kept coming but weren't as constant- first 5 Minutes, then 15 etc... By 9 they started to be between 3-5 minutes apart for an hour so we figured we should go to the hospital. After we dropped Olivia off at my parents, we got to the hospital at about 10:30. By the time we were all settled with giving information at 11:30 they checked me and I was dialated to a 5 so they decided they would keep me:) After an hour at 12:30 I was at an 8, and then at 1:30 I was ready to go and at 1:42 he was born. So it went pretty quick.
He got his color right away and he was born very healthy. He weighed 7 lbs 2 oz, and 20 inches long. He is a very good baby, but he is hungry all the time and he will be sure to let you know. With Olivia when she was born we had to wake her up to eat and she never cried so its a first for us to have a baby who lets you know he is unhappy.
Olivia doesnt really know what to do with her baby brother. She finally wants to hold his hands and feet and give him kisses but she doesn't want to hold him. She will talk to him but she is fine doing her own thing. It will take a while for her to get used to him, and its going to be a little bit before we get things running smooth around here:) but we couldnt be any happier.
