Little Miss M

Little Miss M runs the house. She has since I was pregnant with her. I have never felt so exhausted in my whole life! ALL I wanted to do was SLEEP! I had B at home with me, so it did not happen as much as I would like, but I sure had fun being pregnant her and having 2 older kids at home. They both really helped me to appreciate being pregnant as everything kick that I had with her was rejoiced! They loved the ultrasounds. During one of them, she stuck up her hand as if to say "Hi", it was so cute because you know,she was only saying hi to them.

She was not a surprise, just a long time coming and was so worth the wait! We knew and felt like there was another little one for us, but after having had post pardum depression after B, we were nervous. We knew we could not have another one and live in Fort Mac, which was good that we felt like we should move. Mr. Miller quit his job in Fort Mac at the end of May. We knew he would work until the end of June, so we figured we would have time for him to get a job as lots of jobs are ended in June. June came and went with lots of interviews, but no job. At the beginning of July, he got a phone call From his current district looking for an interview as a principal of Manyberries. They could either do it via confrence call or in person. We were going to the Hat at the end of July, and they were o.k waiting until then to interview him, so that's how it happened. We were relieved when he got the job.

When we moved to the Hat, I was about 6 weeks pregnant, but lost that little one on Sept 30th. We felt comfortable with waiting, and when we became pregnant with Little Miss M, we were THRILLED! and nervous because of my past experience. The pregnancy was great. On Feb 3rd, I was laying on the couch and tried to get up and had 1 massive contraction. I could not move, so was stuck in the crouching position, half way up and half way down. Mr. Miller came out to help. The next day, if I was up and moving, I was having contractions. Mr. Miller was at work and had a very important meeting that night and so I wanted to postpone labor, if at all possible. I would lay down on the couch and write a list of things I had to do when I got up for a pee break. I would complete my list, and lay back down. At about 5, I started to have a few contractions here and there, no matter if I was laying around or not. I was determine dto let Jason have his meeting! I fed the kids and our exchange student, Y, got them ready for bed and helped clean up. Mr. Miller called at 8:50 and said he was on his way home. I told him to check messages with the person he was carpooling with, just incase something happened. at 9pm, my contractions came, 5 mins apart, no stopping. I was trying to lay the kids down with contractions, but everytime I had one, the boys would panic. (No home births for me!) I called my inlaws, they came over. 3 minutes apart. I called and left a message for Mr. Miller to hurry home. 5 mins later, I left a message for him to get to the hospital! I was on my way, just not sure if I was in labour. I got to the hospital at 9:45 and Jason got there at 9:55. I was still not sure I was in labour! Well, when they checked me and I was 4cm, I knew I was! I begged for an epidural, no such luck. I begged for drugs and was told I would get them right away when I got out of the shower. HALF AN HOUR LATER... I got my drugs! Seriously, if I am told I will get them ASAP, I expect them ASAP!!!

Little Miss M was born at 1:57 am on February 5th. She is such a blessing in our lives. Everyone told me girls are so prissy and girly, well, not her. She is happiest when she is wrestling, playing pokemon, roughousing with her brothers! I would have it no other way. She is such a blessing! As with our other children, I definitley know that the Lord knows what he is doing.

Love you M!
