Sean Eldon Robison was born this morning at 5:13am. I went into labor around 1:30am and knew that I was starting labor. I woke Jordan up at 2:00am and said I better call Mom and Julie and get them here this is getting more intense. So I called and got them on their way and then called my Doula, Becky. She answered the phone and was like I was just thinking now would be a good time for you to go into labor. We decided to meet once Julie and Mom got to our house. So we left for the midwife clinic, Julie, Jordan, and me at about 3:00am. When I got there Becky started filling the tub and I labored on the bed a little and then got into the bathtub. My contractions were getting more and more intense and I knew my labor wasn't going to last long. My contractions kept piggybacking and not really letting up like they are supposed to, so by 4:58am, when the second midwife showed up, I said I felt like I needed to push and Inga, my midwife said then start pushing. So from 4:58am to 5:13am I pushed and he was born. Inga said I had one of the fastest types of births, which I loved cause it hurt like heck!!!! I have never felt so much pain in my life, but so much joy and relief when I held that little guy. I gave birth to him on my hands and knees in the tub and they had me swing my leg around him so I could hold him. I love how I have felt and would not do a hospital birth again. Everything about this has been awesome, especially the afterbirth. We came home today at about 11:00am and have felt great. Jace was so excited to see Sean and loved on him LOTS! My mom took him to her house so Jordan, Sean and I could rest which was wonderful. So far it has been amazing and such a blessing to experience!
As you can see in some of the pics, Sean has a very red and purple face. That is because he was delivered so fast that it caused a little bit of bruising. He will have a lot different color by tomorrow. We will add more pics to show everyone.
Sean weighed 8lbs 15ounces and was 20 1/2 inches long.

Easter was for Jace probably not as exciting as it was for his cousins. He didn't get an Easter basket and the Easter bunny did not visit our house, but thankfully he has family that cares. His Aunt Jeni did an Easter egg hunt for her two kids and Jace which was very nice because Jace's poor mother really has no motivation to do much except what I have to right now. He loved it and got a baggy full of candy after opening his eggs. The funniest thing was probably his cousin Lexi getting her hand stuck in the exhaust of their family car trying to retrieve an egg. Sunday was Easter dinner with my family and yummy but pretty uneventful. Jace had fun playing with his cousins Easter basket toys and eating some of their candy. Next year hopefully the Easter bunny will be a little more motivated to give a great Easter basket!!!
