Krew is doing great. Early last night he found his voice. I got the camera out to capture his little sounds and instead I got him sneezing. The sounds that come from him are the sweetest. He has not really cried yet, however, he does let his option known when needs to eat. I heard that at 5:30 this morning. He is sweet little guy. And I am loving having the one on one time with him in the hospital. I know once I get home I have to fight 3 little kids that are going to want to have their time with him.

Krew Micheal VanderLinden. He arrived October 10th at 2:38pm. Tipping the scales at 8 lbs 14 ounces and 21 inches long.
I woke up Saturday morning about 3:30 am with contractions. I could tell that these contractions were not false labour again. I called my mom in AZ and gave her the heads up that today was going to be baby day. My contractions were coming every 3 minutes until about 6. They slowed down just enough to allow me a little power nap. At around 7 the kids were up and Symen was making them pancakes. We headed to hospital and checked in at 10:10.
To my surprise I was already dilated to a 6. Symen, Leah, and Tracee were all there with me. They were great coaches. They helped stay relaxed and focused. Without them I would not have been able to go naturally, which is something I really wanted to do. Things were going along great and when he was ready to come, he came. Two pushes and he was here. My sister who is in OK doing some training before she goes to Iraq was able to Skype in. She actually got see the baby before me. It was great that she was able to share my delivery with me. My mom, arrived shortly after around 4:00 pm.
He is so cute, he looks like Garrit and Zane mixed together. And man a live does this boy have hair. He has a full head of black hair. This would explain my bottle a week of Tums. Also, to no surprise he is a good eater.The kids are excited that Krew is finally here.
So, here we are one big happy family. There is a sweet peace in knowing that my family is complete, that all my angles are here for me to love. I have a wonderful family and I am truly blessed by loving Heavenly Father.
