Welcome Aiden! (and other news)

Before I share photos and stories of our fabulous new baby, Aiden, I have to provide a little pretext to his birth. So I was going along fine, enjoying my time off before the big event, wishing every day that I would go into labor because I was a sore, exhausted, bloated whale, until I had to go pick up my mom at the airport the Thursday before my due date (39 weeks pregnant). I am literally a block away from picking her up, sitting at a stop light, when out of nowhere this limo crashes into me. The force of the impact was so strong that it pushed my Nissan Pathfinder (not a small or light vehicle) into an airport shuttle bus in front of me that also ended up damaged. Needless to say, the 39 week pregnant women went into complete hysterics. An incoherent and hysterical 911 call, fire truck arrival, police brigade onslaught, and ambulance ride later…I spent most of the night in the hospital but everything turns out “okay” at least from the perspective of not pushing me into labor, rupturing the placenta, etc. Although my upper back and neck were killing me and my lower abdomen where the seatbelt was started cramping/contracting. And it turns out that while the baby was head down just the week before at my last OB check, he turned into breech…pretty sure the accident caused it since it was basically like having an external version (which I know, since I have gone through that experience with Evan). The picture the left does not look as bad as it looked in reality. The left door no longer opend and the seats in the back were pushed up from the frame being pushed in. Pretty crazy.

Sooooo....I had a terribly rough week/weekend prior to the birth. I was completely bummed ALL day the Friday after the accident because the baby was now in breech. I broke down in front of my OB at my appt. on Friday. She said I had to schedule a c-section.

As a result...Aiden Peter Ogilvie arrived via c-section on February 11, 2001 at 9:47 am. He weighed 8 lbs.1 oz. and was 19 inches. We lucked out in having another buddha baby. He fusses just a tad more than Evan, but generally is very easy going. He is smiling already and loves to look at all his surroundings. He tends to have a constant look of amazement, which makes him look kinda funny, but we still think he is adorable. Evan is also very wonderful with him. He loves to give him kisses and hugs and wants to hold him a lot. There are many photos on the picasa sight, so enjoy!
