Noah was born Saturday, January 31, 2009 at 2:09 a.m. He weighed 6 lbs 10 ozs, 19 3/4" long. I had been having contractions since Thursday night, but nothing too painful. Just to be safe we went ahead to labor and delivery to get checked out on Friday since the weekend was upon us. I was sent home since my contractions appeared to be Braxton Hicks related. (Nobody ever listens to me)
So we went to a birthday dinner at Copeland's where I ate like it was my last meal (kinda was) and then came home. As we were resting on the couch around 11:45 p.m......here came the water! I knew what to expect this time around and even though Mike thought, "Hey, what's a little water? Maybe we should wait", I told him that it would be in his best interest to pack it up and get to the hospital b/c it was time to name this baby! As I waited for my mom to come so she could stay with Luke, all I could do was stand there as the gushing commenced..... UGH! (Mike found this somewhat humorous and I am sure the look of horror and helplessness was kinda of funny).
So to make a short story shorter.....the doctor (not mine...FUN) came in and informed us that we would have a baby in about an hour. This came as a surprise b/c we expected he would just let me simmer in my juices until morning. So now we have our sweet little addition to complete our family.
We had to go back to the hospital for a few days b/c he was jaundice. That was hard - not being able to hold him very much, but we are back home and everyone is doing fine now. Here are a few pics!
