Scheduled labor is different but it works. Counting down the days and hours until the surgery was nerve racking.  We didn’t get much sleep the night before and we had to be at the hospital at 6:30am.  When it finally came down to the surgery, the staff here at Waukesha Memorial Hospital made us feel as comfortable as possible. Dr. Trester was amazing. Again.  She performed Laura’s last c-section too.

Lacey came out kicking and is already giving daddy pouty faces.

Side bar…

We could not decide on a name.  We were between Lacey and a handful of others.  Then on my drive back and forth I followed this.  Was it a sign? We thought so.


Back to the story…

Dayton and Grandma came to visit the next day (Wed 11/19).  He was tepid at first, but when he needed to go Dayton walked over to Lacey and gave her a big hug and a kiss.  So sweet! He’s going to be an awesome big brother.

Thanks to everyone for your well-wishes.  We love you all.  We should be home Friday afternoon (11/21) and you’re welcome to come and visit us.

Thanks to Lacey’s Great Uncle Dale Robertson for this classic pic. (For those that don’t know, like me, there is a Packer called Eddie Lacey, #27)
