6 Years ago today........



A beautiful little girl named Payton Aubrie Erickson was born!!

Here is a little back story. This was the most worst pregnancy ever, but I loved every minute of it! I was so excited when we found out, we had been trying for a while. I started getting sick around the 3rd month and it was horrid. I pucked at least 4 times a day and lost 10 pounds in the first 4 months of pregnancy. I had to be put on an IV drip to keep me hydrated. At 5 weeks we had the ultra sound and fount out we were having a boy! That's right a boy! My doctor couldn't be there for it so a different Doc did the ultra sound. When she got back and looked at the chart she called us back in for a new ultra sound and said the other Doc had to be wrong and she wanted to see. Payton was being stubborn and would not show anything. So we went with the fact that we were having a boy. I was sick until about the 8th month, so the last month was bliss and agony at the same time. I was due on June 11, I went into labor on Fathers Day June 14, but my doctor was out of town so they stopped my labor and sent me home. On the 23rd I had this feeling that there was something wrong cause she wasn't moving as much as she normally did. I went in and had a fetal stress test and they said she was fine. Now with me being 2 weeks over due, on the 24th I finally went into labor again at about 5:00 a.m. not realizing that I was. I told Jesse to just go to work cause I didn't think it was real labor. Then at about 9 I realized it was, I called my Mom In Law and she came and took me to the hospital. At about 12 they broke my water and I called Jesse to come to the hospital. At this time I was only Dilated to a 4. By 6 I couldn't stand it anymore and got a epidural, that was when the doctor came in, checked me and told me there was a problem. He head was coming down the wrong way, so they tried to fix the problem and said they would be back in a bit to see if it had worked. At about 7:45 they came in and checked me and told me it didn't work I was only dilated to a 5 and I would have to have a C-Section, needless to say I was terrified. Finally at 9:25 P.M. my doctor starts laughing and holds her over the blue curtain and says "It's a Girl!!!" That is when the name changed form Peyton James to Payton Aubrie. I also sent my mom to go buy some girl clothes cause we had none, she wore lots of blue bows!!

Payton has been such a joy in our lives and a challenge at the same time. She is so full of life and happy almost all the time. She is a lot like her dad and very loud. She is a lot like me in the fact that she doesn't ever stop talking. She is very girly and loves to play dress up, she is my shadow and follows me everywhere I go. I am so happy we have Payton in our life!! We love you Payton, Happy Birthday baby girl!!!
