Welcome Jeffery Stratt Brandon
So I was scheduled to be induced a week early because I told Dr. Beck I did not want another big baby. So Monday June 21st at 5am we went to Banner Gateway to get thing started. At about 7:30 they checked me dilated to a 1 and 60 percent thinned. Well at least I had done something on my own! So they started me on patosume. Then dr beck came in about 8:30 and broke my water ouch! Then by about 11:00 I was at a 3cm. I asked the nurse if I could get the epidural cause with Rustin I stayed at a 3 for 9 hours and hard contraction. So I did not want that to happen. Got the epidural and by 3:00 was at 6cm. Ok I just might have this baby today. Unlike Rustin where it was 24 hours of labor. She upped the dose again of petosume. the nurse kept telling me I would feel pressure when the baby was about to come out. I kept telling her I can not feel anything. That epidural was a strong one. I did not have a strong one with my first I could feel my legs enough to move them. This time I felt like the bottom half of my body was not apart of me. It actually mad me nauseas. I had them give me meds for that. So at 5:00 the nurse came in and checked me and said oh black hair! Let me call the Doctor. Well Dr. Beck was already in the hospital so he walked right in and the nurse said that was quick and he said I try to be prompt. They got me all ready and 3 pushes later and about 5 min later my big boy was born. beck said dang girl you can push! Beck also said good thing we induced you. You would have had a 10 pound baby! I said see I told you! I had such a great labor and delivery! I could not have asked for better nurses and my great doctor! It feels good to have him out!

Grandpa McBride & Stratt! I have to post about My dad. We just received great news about his cancer. He had a pet scan done yesterday and got the results that all the tumors are gone. The big one that was on his heart that they did surgery on to remove but could not get it all that one is there but smaller. So the chemo is working! We could not be more blessed. Now we wait to hear what the next treatments are. We love you dad and know you get make it through this trial in your life. You have been such a great example to me in my life and a person I look up to! Love you and thanks for all you do for me and our family!
We are home!
Nonnie McBride Stratt & Rustin.
Here I am!
Rustin has been such a big help and good big brother. He has been so excited for his little brother too come out of my belly! He would talk to him and say Stratt it is time for you to come out you are taking for ever!
So our little man Stratt has been a pretty good baby so far. He is not cranky all day long like his big brother Rustin. Rustin had cholic and acid reflex. Stratt on the other hand has cranky nights from about 6-midnight. Still trying to get used to life out side the tummy. So we have not got much sleep but doing and hanging in there. Who does get much sleep or things done with a new born?! They are so worth it. We could not be more excited to have him apart of are family. We have been long waiting the arrival of another child. We have been blessed with his sweet spirit!
