Denver wasted no time coming into this world! My contractions started at 2:00 a.m. that day & by 4:29 a.m. he was born. Quite an hour ride to the hospital - one that I will not forget. I was pretty sure I was going to have him in the vehicle. I couldn't stop the urge to push & Jeremy just keep saying "oh no." My water ended up breaking just before going over the bridge heading into Edson. Jeremy said, "oh no, just wait!" Got to the hospital finally at 4:20 a.m. & Jeremy ran in & told the nurses. "My wife is having a baby!!" He came running out with a wheel chair with the nurse trailing behind. I guess the nurse didn't believe I was that far along until she heard me...haha. I didn't even have time to gown up! Jeremy, took our older son Jasper over to his sisters. And by the time he got back Denver was already born! Denver was delivered by a student doctor & two nurses. So 9 minutes at the hospital & he was born! The one nurse asked the student doctor, "how much do you think he weighs?" His response, "7 pounds maybe?" LOL. My first born was 9 pounds, 6 ounces. I don't think I have a chance! My birthing story was the talk of the morning at the hospital! LOL. One thing I know is that they need to fix some road heaves on that highway!
Denver here is two weeks old. I didn't want to buy anymore backdrops because I'm trying to save up for a new lens & camera...and they are not cheap. So I got Jeremy to make me the sliced log backdrop. And it looked great. Just the look that I wanted! Since one of Denver's middle names comes from my Grandpa who passed away last summer, I wanted to incorporate in Denver's photos a piece of his Great Grandpa's flannel shirt. The knitted pants Denver is wearing, I up-cycled them from an old sweater of mine.
We are so happy & blessed to have two healthy little boys!
