Did somebody call the fire department?

Because I just go hosed!

Up until the birth of our son, and for several days after wards, I had only changed a total of ZERO diapers. I hate admitting this but I was the baby in my family and when we would visit our family in VA who had little ones, my sisters would always volunteer to change the diaper as if it were as yummy as a butterfinger blizzard treat. (If it were, I would have been all over it!!) But I was smarter than that! When I got older, I only baby sat once. The girl was 9 and wise beyond her years. It was the easiest money I ever made and looking back feel guilty for charging her parents money. If anyone else wanted me to watch their kids, I told them I would only after they were potty trained. (I KNOW I KNOW- I AM TERRIBLE!)

I am paying for it now. Wayne Baker is making me pay for it. I have been officially peed on 3 times! I have gotten wise about the situation by placing a wipe over the firing range while I clean the back door and it's vacinity.

This whole experience brings me one step closer to REALLY being the mother of a baby boy.

Wayne Baker

The newest Richardson arrived 9 days ago. Friday the 16th at 11:39pm. 21 more minutes and he would have had to share his birthday with at least 3 people. Molly, Amanda and Brandon.

Matthew made spicy curry coconut chicken for dinner that night. I thought it was a wives tale about the spicy food putting a woman into labor. Not even 10 minutes after we finished eating, I started contracting. I hung around in disbelief for well over and hour, counting the intervals. 7 minutes, 6 minutes, 5 minutes..... Apparently by this point, the loom on my face told Matthew and my mom that it was TIME TO GO! Sure enough, I was 3 cm dilated and having regular contractions every 4 minutes. They prepped me for surgery and out he came! Butt first.

To be continued..... bedtime for bonzo

Final stage of incubation of a certain fetus we like to call 'BABY R'

My name is Rebecca Richardson and my husband's name is Matthew Richardson. I am a college graduate/house wife (for now) and he has been enlisted in the USN for almost 5 years. We are expecting our first child, gender unknown, any day now.

Seeing as there will be a bundle of joy entering our lives VERY SOON, I thought it would be nice to start a blog for family and friends to keep updated on our busy lives.

Baby R' went breech 2 weeks ago and the doctors tried doing an external version to flip the baby back around. This did not work out as planned and I am as sore as gym rat in their first month of extraneous workouts! As of right now, the c-section is scheduled for the 29th of January. We have a feeling the baby will come sooner than that date. Only time will tell!
