Kruz Kent

Our sweet little boy Kruz finally arrived! He was born August 3rd at 12:13 pm. He was 8 lbs 5 oz and was 21 inches long. I had an appointment the 2nd and Grace told the dr we were moving to Utah, which I had told him many times, and he asked when and when I told him 2 weeks he said he was inducing me the next day at 8:30 am. I was shocked and I'll tell you now that I way prefer just going into labor naturally because you don't stress out about it. Anyway so I went in the next morning and they started pitocin at around 9 and probably 1 hour later started getting really bad contractions. I didnt want to seem like a wimp so I endured them for a while then told Royce I needed the nurse. So she comes in and asks if I want an epidural, which I did, so we waited for the anesthesiologist to get out of a c-section he was in. So he came and gave me the epidural but the contractions just kept getting worse and worse and I was ready to push in about 5 minutes. My dr was in Santa Ana so they told me to hold off. I had the shakes really bad but the dr showed up and after 5 pushes he was out! He was posterior and diagonal so the dr said I was lucky to not have a c-section. His breathing started to slow as well so he had to get out fast. Everything turned out great although his nose was smashed to the side because it got stuck on the way out. It is straightening out though and we couldn't love him more. He looks almost identical to Grace when she was born and is just as content as she was. We're all doing great and are grateful to be blessed with our sweet little Kruz!

I love him! I want to give him a squeeze. He is so adorable. I have never gone in to labor on my own, but I do love when you can talk a doctor into getting induced. I hope you are adjusting well and that he is a good sleeper! I can do anything with a good nights sleep.
