February 27th Changed our Lives!!

On Februrary 27, 2009, at 1:11 p.m. our lives as just the 3 Sharpe's changed instantly! What an amazing day!

At 5 a.m. we checked into Women's East Pavilion in Chattanooga into Room 8813! It was so early, but that was the time the Doctor wanted us there for my Induction....At 8 a.m. the Doctor came in and say hey and see how I was doing then she broke my Water!!! The pitocin drip started at 6.45 a.m.....By 11 a.m. I was having very strong contractions....and I knew then it was time for the EPIDURAL!! i was able to rest for a two short hours, because at 12.50 I knew it was time to have Brayden! The doctor arrived about that time, and within 5 minutes of her arriving I was ready to push, and within 15 minutes of pushing (NO LIE) I had Brayden Josiah Sharpe, he was 7 lbs 5 oz and was 20.75 inches long and had a head FULL of hair, mostly in the back but still a lot! That was the quickest morning I had every went by so fast....the following day I went home too!

Since that day, so much has happened in our lives....and I have been beyond overwhelmed....but GOD has been there for me and has helped me through it because no one has been there to....First of all, on the Sunday after Brayden was born our church had it's Church Dedication because we have an amazing new church to worship in!! And they had a revival through Sunday, that meant Jason was not around pretty much from Saturday through Wednesday....after coming home Wednesday night he went straight to bed...he felt AWFUL, and couldn't move, we find out Friday Jason had the FLU!!!!!!!!!!! But from Wednesday until Friday we couldn't keep Peyton out of his room and face, so Peyton went to Jason's parents on Friday night, and early Sunday morning, Peyton comes down with the FLU!!! I was so emotional! I couldn't be there to help Jason get better (we left him in his room) nor could I be there for Peyton, because we did not want Brayden to get it, or he would of had to go to the was just tough, BEYOND tough!!!! But, God has healed my two guys!!!! PRAISE THE LORD!! And they are feeling so much better!!!

Another thing that has been overwhelming is just keeping the house clean, because the first 2 weeks you're not suppose to do anything strenuous like major house it was tough seeing my house getting dirtier and dirtier and knowing there are flu germs I used the Lysol Wipes and Lysol spray and did the best I could!! :0) Anyhow....I'm just venting....:0)

But! Today I went to Target for the first time with both boys and I survived!!! Yay!! I know this is silly to most people but I'm such a worry wart! And I didn't know what Peyton would do, if he'd run away from me in the store or went well, although Peyton did throw a fit because we didn't stay at the games longer so he could play....but overall it went great!

I am posting a link from Facebook of the photos that I had posted there...:0) enjoy them!
