March 5th is a good day for a birthday

Finally! Katy delivered William Drake Colonel, 7lbs 11oz, 20 inches - March 5th, 2009 at 12:48pm by c-section. Wednesday March 4th was a very long day.

She thought that after all the preparation on Tuesday night that she would deliver on Wednesday. But the little pumpkin was turned the wrong way and would not (and believe me- we tried!)- roll the other way. So, the decision was made at about 11:30am Thursday that she would deliver by c-section. She and the baby are doing very well. She had gotten quite a good rest the night before (even though her water was broken at 2am). So she was really ready for something.

He is beautiful (of course!). He looks like Katy (I guess)- but has Josh's chin (a little cleft dimple!). And the LONGEST hair I have ever seen on a baby. My babies all had hair of some kind or another, but nothing like this.

I will get pics posted asap- Bari has to help me with that. Call my cell if you want her address or for me to text a pix to you!!!!
Little Will is here!!!!- OH and she'll be at Mercy Anderson room 356 until Sunday.

We're gonna' have a bo-y! We're gonna' have a bo-y!

Yep, time and date are ready to be announced. Katy is going to the hospital (Mercy Anderson) Tuesday night, and will be induced Wednesday morning. We're gonna' have a Bo--Y!

She is ready- - I'm not so sure about Josh.

My mom-in-law is going to the hospital tomorrow night to make sure she gets 'settled in'. Isn't she the best????????? I'll go over on Wednesday morning, even though it will probably be a very long day. I'm excited to be able to be there.

It will be hard to concentrate at work tomorrow, but it should go by quickly. Work is really busy, and when I get home I need to finish off all the costume tweeks for this weekend. I've already told my boss that I won't be at work either Wednesday or Thursday. Madeline will be picked up for dance Wednesday and Thursday. Bari has ym on Wednesday and usually takes Sam to Scouts, but we may need to make other arrangements so he an visit the hospital before going home.

Well, all the excitement is tiring me out. I'm going to bed- and hopefully to SLEEP!!!!
