My First Mother's Day!

Our little Dane made his grand entrance on Mother's Day at 10:32 am. He was 7 lbs 15 oz and 20 inches long and we were relieved he is healthy and well. I had been worried about knowing when "its time" but my water broke during the night about 2:30 am and it quickly became clear we needed to get to the hospital. I dialated to an 8 1/2 - 9 very quickly and that is when i got an epidural and i'm glad i did because after that things slowed significantly. it was another 5 hours until he was born. James was really curious about everything and asked a lot of questions and took some pictures that i promptly deleted when i saw. :) But we did get a few good pictures of Dane that first day. Since then we've been more overwhelmed and we need to start taking more pics again. He is absolutely adorable and the pics do not do him justice. But here are some pics from the hospital:



Hopefully this post is coherent because this week has been quite sleepless! We can't wait to introduce him to you all very soon!

Yeah! A couple more pics. I'll take whatever I can get. I just want to kiss him. He looks squeezable! What a beautiful family you have, Heath. Hang in there--the first couple of weeks are the hardest and it'll just get better.
