A new award

I received a very generous award yesterday from my good friends over at This Stop Willoughby and over at the 5th Sister, both are wonderful ladies and have some very neat blogs that aren't strictly dedicated to cooking which is a nice break from all of the food consumed blogs I frequent.

We are still patiently awaiting Dylan. Nikki was admitted to the hospital last night to start the procedures for induction. They started her pitocin drip this morning at 4 a.m. and guess what...not a darn thing happened. She had contractions pretty strong but she didn't dilate but maybe half a centimeter. They stopped it late this morning to give her a break and allow her to shower and eat but it's being started back up this evening so hopefully this little guy will make his appearance tomorrow on his own. From what I understand he is coming tomorrow whether he likes it or not, if nothing further happens for her she is getting the big "c" word...c-section! She was a nervous wreck about it but I think she is so tired and miserable that she is actually to the point where she will welcome one. Hopefully when you stop back by this little blog of mine tomorrow a nice picture of him will be up to show the world, ok maybe not the world, but maybe the handful of you who are faithful followers which I appreciate greatly by the way.

On a side note I spent a few hours with her last night while they got everything started and selfishly it was kind of nice. We are birthing at the same hospital and chances are may have the same nurses. It was nice to get a feel of the place while not being escorted around on a tour and her nurse last night was kind enough to offer me some guidance and answer some questions that I had concerning the dreaded epidural. I still can't believe that in four months I am going to be the one in the bed while Nikki is the one in the chair looking on. I just pray that Addison is a little bit more generous when it comes time to making her grand entrance into the world. I keep telling her, "don't make me come in there and get you". I wonder if she plans on listening? My fear is that the wonderful cold weather in Ohio during the month of February will keep her in way past her due date. I mean who can blame her, I don't want to be in the cold Ohio weather during that month let alone should a baby whose been snuggled inside of my nice warm womb for almost ten months.
