Welcome Landon Milton Roe!!!

So on the 11th I went into my doctor's app't to find out I was having my baby boy! My blood pressure was high and so she wanted to induce me right away. I was almost 37 weeks gestation so they had no worries. Unfortunatly I had to have magnesium to keep me from having a stroke because of the blood pressure and that was not fun:( So they started me on that and petocin around 7:30 pm and he was born at 7:30 a.m. the next morning. So his birthday is June 12th, 2008. He weighed 8 lbs. 10 oz. and was measured at 20 and 1/2 inches long. For being 3 weeks early he was a big boy! They were able to put him right on my chest and I was able to bond with him right away....it was beautiful:) Alyssa was there for the whole birth along with Jason and she thought that it was awesome! She did amazing and even cried when he was laid on me. Like mother like daughter:) It was truly a bonding experience between us. I wouldn't have changed it at all! She was so interested in everything that was going on and even said that when she grows up she wants to be a doctor who delivers babies:) Knowing that little Landon will be my last baby, it was a very emotional and beautiful moment when he was born. So far he is a great sleeper and eater! He is a wonderful, adorable, addition to our family! Welcome home Landon:)
