Happy Birthday Peyton

Three years ago today I was exactly 41 weeks pregnant.
Ask my midwife and she will tell you that I am a 41 weeker and will probably never
naturally go into labor at 40 weeks or earlier.
Three years ago, I woke up at 1 a.m. to contractions that were 10-15 min apart.
I decided to be nice and let Brian and the midwife sleep.
At 6 am they were pretty regular 10 min so I decided to wake everyone up and call
the midwife. She was on her way.
We called Grandma Cindy to come and get Michael and Casey.
The contractions came and went.
I was 8 cm when the midwife came at a little after 6.
Problem is that Peyton wouldn't drop.
I was in labor for 16 hrs. My longest one.
With just a few pushes this little man flew into the world.
Scared us at first because he didn't let a cry but he had a good grip and we knew he would be okay.
Michael and Casey came over that night to see us and went with Grandma to get dinner for everyone. Mama was craving chinese food from Haggen's. It was delicious.

Peyton James weighed in at 9lbs 11.5oz 22.5 in long

Peyton you are a whirlwind of energy.
Lover of food, always in the kitchen sneaking bananas.
Wonderful BIG brother
You are a big boy and are using the potty now.
You HATE diapers, they are for babies
You love Little Einsteins.

We love you Wingnut
(or Hoover as daddy has started calling you lately)
