Sydney's Birth-Day

I’m not even sure where to start. How about the beginning? Michel and I were mortified when we found out we were having a kid. A living, breathing human we would be responsible for for the rest of our lives. I just have to describe what a blessing everybody at Full Circle was during the […]

Paul Henry Olson's Birth-Day

I awoke at 5:00am having contractions & thought this might finally be it!  They kept happening so I timed them at 5 minutes apart & called Patrice at 6:30 am to let her know this was the day!  I called Andy at work to let him know & he arrived home at 7:30.  The birthing […]

Benjamin Peter Wilson's Birth-Day

I went into labor the evening of Aug. 16th.  We ate a late supper, rushed the kids over to grandma & grandpa Wilson’s for the night and waited.  I felt rushed & tense & was glad to have quiet in the house.  Contractions were about 10 min. apart, but I was up straightening & cleaning […]

Ava Moon Renna's Birth-Day

The labor and birth was amazing.  It was much better that I ever expected.  I had scattered light contractions throughout the day on the 15th starting after my appointment with Patrice.  I wasn’t actually even sure they were contractions, but I assumed they were because I had been bleeding since the 13th (we weren’t ever […]

Baby Reed's Birth-Day

My water broke at about 1:30 a.m.  I was surprised at how much it gushed.  The thought that ran through my head was, if that much fluid is coming out that must mean that the babies head is not very low and this is going to take a long time.  I wasn’t having any pains […]

Anna Joy Roberson’s Birth-Day

Our estimated delivery date was 10/16/03 (a Thursday). Mike, Levi (then 2 ½ yrs old) and I spent the evening walking through Home Depot and Meijer. I had been having lots of Braxton-Hicks and it felt good to think something might actually be happening. We went home about 10pm and slept peacefully all night. That […]
