I know that I say this ALL the time but I am going to say it again, WHERE HAS ALL THIS TIME GONE?!?!?! Lol I can remember the day of his birth like it was yesterday! I woke up that morning still in heavy labor, thinking it was time to call into work (yes, I still planned on working my open shift for Chuck E Cheese up until that point lol). When I called, they told me that they had double scheduled me because it was my actual due date! I hadn't realized that until they had told me. Right then, I made myself a pact that 37 hours of labor was long enough and that I would HAVE this baby before the end of the day! :) I was right about that, but it took another whole twelve hours before he came!
I was just about to give in and get the painkillers, I was so tired and crying about everything, when my OB came in and said it was time to push. I delivered Alan at 10:23 pm that night, after several stressful minutes of pushing. Alan had the cord wrapped around his neck and we had no way of knowing, his little heart rate kept dropping in the birth canal. Thankfully, he came out just in time! He was a healthy sweet boy after that! Oh Alan, we are so glad to have you in our lives!
Alan had his second day of preschool today! He was also chosen to bring snacks because it was his birthday! We brought sliced apples and carmel for dipping, with cool animal plates for the kids to eat off of! It was such a great idea for snack and he thought of it all by himself! :) His teachers even gave him a crown with his name on it! He had a wonderful time in class. Here are some photos of him from his class today!
Then Alan had another birthday surprise in store for him! His friend who couldn't come to his party, Tatum, had met up with us to wish Alan a happy birthday and to give him his birthday gift. It was so nice to see her! And she sure spoiled him too! She gave Alan so many little goodies! A spinny ball, clay, coloring books with crayons, and some more little treats! Thanks Quirk family, we appreciate the present! We will have to get together again soon!
