Time goes by too fast! I can't believe we are already in the middle of the year. I'm going to be 25 years old in a couple of months. Claire is 2 years old and Amelia is 1 month old. Where did the time go? November Rodney & I have been together for 10years. WoW! I have a blessed life. I am not a millioniare but I am genuine happy with my life. Of course We've had trial and tribulations but we've have over come them. We are a family unit and together thats what brings me happiness. Maybe I am getting older but things have changed in my life and I feel blessed. I praise the lord and thank him.

7 am a normal day at the Warren's, we were all in bed watching cartoons. I set up in the bed and I feel a small gush but I don't think anything of it. But I mentioned to husband my water might be leaking I wasn't sure so I wanted to moniter it and see if anything changes later on in the day. We followed our normal routine, Claire and I go to storytime at the libary. I even made it to bed bath and beyond to purchase some things for the house. All day I don't feel any different. My mom called to check on me, I told her about what happend and encourage me to call OB.
By 3 pm the nurse called by and intructed us to go the hospital to get things checked out.
It's 6pm we arrived at the hospital, I have high hopes to go back home. After the nurse made the finally test, she declared I wasn't going home. I was going to have a baby! Finally we were going to find out what we were going to have. We were so excited! We transfer rooms immediately to a labor&delivery suite.
By 7pm I was up walking the halls trying to start up my labor. My plan was to have a natural birth without any drugs to help. I knew any interventions will make my labor harder. The nurse asked me to time my contractions. I was having contractions but they were not timeable nor could I feel them.
By 12am there was no change and it was time to take some action. 12:30am started on pitcon (a drug to start labor). By 1am I could start to feel my contractions and they started to be timeable. I tried manage my pain by changing positions and breathing.
By 3:30 I was almost at my breaking point because I starting to feel the transition stage of labor. I was check to see my progress and I was only at 6cm with contractions every min. I wanted the baby out and know the gender of the baby. It was so frustrated at that point, the nurse check again after 15 mins I went from a 6cm to 8cm. Everyone started preping the baby bed. I could feel that the end of near but the pain intense.
At 3:45 the doctor was at the foot of the bed and I was pushing my hardest get the baby out. It felt a sense of relief when the baby came out and I could hear my husband voice say its a girl! I couldn't of been happier. Amelia Raye was born at 4:15am 6lbs 2oz 19inches. I was so excited we have 2 baby girls to share in my life. Most importantly I made it through my med-free delivery! I was really set on having a naturally birth & I did it. Not only did I make it I felt so much better as far as the recovery after sleeping 8hrs. I was ready to get dressed and go home.

Febuary 28, 2010 we signed and got the keys to our home. I am forever thankful to be able to homeowners. I feel so blessed as many have lost their homes due to economic hard times. It has been a hard 2 years but I am thankful. I'm welcoming many years of memories, home improvement projects, and many partys.
I think back to theses past 2 years, we have worked really hard to keep what we have in such pressed economy. In the future count less projects of paint and lawn mowing.
