Well after a week of waiting for baby Bitner number 2, I was finally induced. August 1 saw us heading off to the hospital to see if we couldn’t do something about coaxing our precious child out of his warm and comfortable home so that we could finally meet him. I will spare you of all the details as I’m sure there are some who read this that really don’t want to know :) I’ll just say that once labour finally got going, it went fast! By the time I got an epidural and was waiting for it to start working I reeeeally needed to push and ended up delivering without the help of any drugs. Who knew I had it in me? I certainly didn’t believe I did, but I was proven wrong! I gave birth to a healthy not-so-little boy: Wyatt Albert Bitner, who weighed 9lb 2oz! After it was over I felt so energized: I felt that after that, there was nothing I couldn’t do. I hope that determined resolve stays with me when Clay goes back to work next week and I will be left with the task (and joy, don’t get me wrong) of entertaining Markus and looking after Wyatt all alone. It has been so awesome to have Clay here to help with Markus and keep him entertained. I know Markus is going to be pretty sad about Daddy having to go back to work because he’s having so much fun with him, and I just pray that he will adjust to life somewhat gracefully when Daddy can’t be here all the time to play.
So here are a few pictures, one of me and Wyatt, and the other of our whole family :)
