Holy crap.....how horrible does this mama feel right now? Beyond horrible. Landon and Calvin's birthday's are less than one month apart. But it felt like one day to the next. So how could I write about one baby but forget about the other?
Well one thing I will never forget is how Landon came to be. He was dramatic from the very beginning. From before he was even born. We thought we miscarried him. We thought he was gone. And after trying for him for years and years...we were devastated. After the ER doc told us he was gone, we went to the OB the next morning and during the ultrasound, the OB says "well....there's the heartbeat." We couldn't believe it. We cried...and cried. And cried some more.
Then I started having contractions. At 28 weeks. And my friend Sara told me not to google it. But I did. duh. That was stupid. They put me on some meds to stop the contractions. And at one point I had to go to the hospital and they put me on magnesium. At 36 weeks.
At 37 weeks, I went into full blown labor. And all along, I wanted to have a VBAC. And luckily, I had an awesome OB that made it happen. It was successful but for some reason, my blood pressure dropped super low and I almost passed out. Weirdest feeling ever.
Oh and did I mention he was born with a club foot? And how he fell off the counter(don't ask...) Drama Drama Drama
Ryan always says, "In a room full of toys and one razor blade, Landon would find the razor blade to play with". It's so true.
After all....he is the MIDDLE CHILD
But despite all of the drama, I can say that Landon and I have a special bond that I can't explain. He makes me laugh...he makes me cry. We get mad at each other and we laugh together. We have been through an awful lot together, that Landon and I.
Landon and I spent the day together...all by ourselves.
He calls them "ELLAS"
Could you even imagine? THREE Landon's?
OH EM GEE
I'm a mom and a wife who loves to play with a camera...how can life be any better?
