7 lbs 11 oz
21 Inches
6:31 pm
My due date was March 29th and the doctor didn't want me to go over so he gave me a three day window to be induced. On March 26th, the hospital called me at about one o'clock to come in.

Before they started me I was 3+ centimeters dilated and 80 percent effaced. At 3:15 they started me on a very slow pitocin drip. The nurse was going between our room and another one and she didn't want us to delivery at the same time. The doctor broke my water at around 5:30 and I was dilated to a 6. He left and said that he only needs 12 minutes to get back. A few contractions later I told the nurse it felt like I need to go to the bathroom and so she checked me. She told me she felt head and that she was going to call the doctor and that I should try not to push. (A request that was very hard to do!!) My doctor came a few minutes later after driving 95 mph. He walked in his house just to turn around and drive right back to the hospital. After pushing for about 90 seconds our little guy was born at 6:31 pm. Just over 3 hours of labor!

He has lots of hair!! Just slightly more than his older sister had and a little darker too. I think he looks a lot like his older sister when she was born. Brooklyn kept telling everyone that her mama and dada were at the "restaurant." I think she finally understood what was going on when she saw him at the hospital. When she first saw him she wasn't quite sure about him. She just wanted to look at him and not hold him, but she warmed up pretty quick :) 

 We feel very blessed that we are both healthy and are so excited to have this perfect addition to our family!
