Happy Birthday Cameron!!

Cameron is 16 today! It doesn't seem possible to me, but it's true! We are so blessed to have Cameron in our family. I had Cameron 2 weeks early. My doctor thought that I was measuring too small for how far along I was so we had an ultrasound done. The results of the ultrasound showed that I was losing amniotic fluid, so they scheduled me to be induced. We went to the Hospital for a non-stress test everything seemed fine so we went back the next morning. I was hooked-up to Pitocin and then we waited. We waited what seemed like forever. My body just doesn't work right when it comes to the whole labor thing. I take forever to dilate. After having 24 hrs of labor and then a C-section with Samuel I was a little nervous that it was happening all over again with Cameron. Well, I guess I finally started to make some progress, the doctor came in and broke my water (which by the way I had plenty of) , I was given an epidural, I slept a little bit and then they woke me up and said it was time to start pushing. I think I only pushed for about 20 min. and he was out. Now for the reason that he is such a blessing to be with us, He was born with 2 knots in his cord. The doctor was a little surprised to see one, but two. He said that Cameron might not have made it if we waited those 2 weeks. I am so thankful for Cameron, and for an Ultrasound that was wrong. We love having Cameron in our family. He has such a fun sense of humor, he loves being close to cousins so that he can hang out with them. He looks up to his Dad. He loves being with friends. He loves to tease Shelby, play with Kendall and pick on Samuel. But most of all he loves his family very much, He is sensitive to their feelings. I am so proud of him. He adds so much joy and laughter and sometimes tears (happy ones) to our family. Happy Birthday Cameron!! We Love You!!

Happy Birthday Cameron! I can't believe he's 16 either. I guess it's a good thing we aren't wandering around the neighborhood by your house anymore with a new driver in the area:) JK! Love the pictures of him too.
