7 years ago today...

BROCK was born! I can't believe it has already been 7 years. It has gone by so fast! Here is just a little overview of how he came into this cruel world. This is more for my benefit of having this in writing! My actual due date was on the 11th and I decided to go to the carnival that was in town to get a Carmel apple. I went with my friend Erin and we stood in line forever. Right after I got the Carmel apple I bit into it and the apple broke off of the stick and it rolled right over the top of my belly and I caught it as it fell off of my belly. I REALLY wanted that Carmel apple!

Anyway after that my friend Erin came over to my parent's house to show me pictures of an accident she had been in. She was hit by a drunk driver and her face was really messed up. I decided to look at the pictures and while I was looking at them I went into labor. It was around 10pm. Finally around 11 my mom talked me into getting in the car and letting her drive the 50 miles to the hospital. Along came my dad and Erin. When I arrived at the hospital I was only dilated to a 2! They told me that I could walk around and see if I progressed any further or else I needed to go back home. I was like you have to be kidding me, my back was going to fall off. I tried to walk around, but instead I feel to my knees from the pain. (If you don't know me I am the biggest WIMP!!!!)
So they gave me one more option and that was to take a hot shower. It was the hottest shower that I have ever takin, but it felt so good. I stood in their with pure HOT water for 20 minutes. My mom was so cute she kept checking on me to make sure that I was going to pass out. After the shower the nurse checked me and I was at a 5. When I heard the news I told them I wanted an epidural ASAP. I was the meanest woman in labor. I chucked a wash cloth and yelled at everyone. Poor Erin got left in the room with me while my family hung out in the waiting room. The worst part was that nobody told me not to drink water, and so needless to say I puked everywhere and the nurses had to change the bed with me on it, because I had already had the epidural. It was quite embarrassing! Anyway Brock Danzen Bullock was born at 6:19am on October 12, 2002. It weighed in at a whopping 9lbs. 1oz. and he was 21 inches long. That wasn't the worst part he had the biggest head measuring at 17 1/4 inches! He was not a newborn he was already a toddler!lol

Brock has been a true blessing! He has a fun personality that sometimes drives me crazy, but I wouldn't have him any other way. He loves to play sports and video games. He is the best big brother ever. He helps out with Jaylee and she adores him! I am so glad that Jason came into our lives so that Brock could have a father. It has been a change for everyone, but for the better!
