Welcome to Newell Nation! Canon is by far the heaviest baby we or should I say Rhonda has had. He weighed twice as much as Jada! It is so tempting not to go out an do Oklahoma Drills with him and the other boys. Camiryn and Caleb may toss him around but he and Cruz will have a good go at it! Haha.
Quick run down:
5:30 pm Tameka breaks Rhonda’s water! (Tameka swears she didn’t but all day she was saying she was going to get this baby out. I leave her and Rhonda alone for 5 minutes and what happens while I am gone? Rhonda’s water breaks!)
5:30 – 6:15 pm We time Rhonda’s contractions and prepare the room for a HOME BIRTH!
6:15 pm I call Allison, the mid wife, and tell her Rhonda is 5 min a apart. Allison and her assistant Jen head over.
7:00 pm Allison and Jen arrive, check on baby, Rhonda and setup.
7:15 pm The fun begins!
7:15 pm – 10:30 pm readjusting, pushing, screaming, praying, dying, resurrecting – repeats until we try to move from bathroom to bedroom.
10:39 pm – Canon Lucas is born!
In between screaming and praying was Leia, Tameka, and Tedee providing encouragement and support to Rhonda! Them along with Allison and Jen made a wonderful team. So happy they could all be there. Canon you are so loved little man! Oh and mommy is in the picture she is just being camera shy!
