I'm really going to do this
Your birth story
We had known for quite a while that you were measuring big, my sweet Oliver. On Thursday, December 8, 2011, your Aunt JCC and I were having lunch when my doctor's office called and said would we like to have a baby on Friday, December 16th? I was so excited, I couldn't even stand it!
Your Nana T flew in on Sunday afternoon and we got all prepared for your big arrival. Friday, December 16th your daddy and I drove to the hospital and got all checked in. You came into the world screaming your head off at 12:41, weighing 10 lbs 4 oz. You had so many people in the waiting room just ready to see you for the first time...Nana T, Aunt JCC, the General, Pops and even your Great Aunt Lucille and Uncle Boney drove all the way up from Georgetown (they never leave Georgetown!!!)
We spent three days at Baptist and came home to Dewey being really scared of you. Those first few days were very tiring, to say the least. You didn't want to sleep anywhere but your swing. Your daddy crashed into the closet and mama scared Aunt JCC so bad while she was holding you that she jumped almost out of her chair!
You managed to get sick pretty early on (you were sick on Christmas day) and we finally took you to the ER on the 29th and found out you had RSV. Boy, mama and daddy were SO scared something would happen to you.
You are all better now and we can't wait for what the future holds!
