Emmett Alan







Baby Emmett is finally here!
Quick info:
I didn't end up having to be induced. I went into labor myself around 4am the morning that I was scheduled to be induced three and a half hours later. (Friday Aug. 14th) I woke Dan up around 4:40, took a quick shower, called Jen who was here in record time, and checked into the hospital around 5am. Luckily the anesthesiologist was already at the hospital for another patient, so he was able to come in and do my epidural right away. Unfortunately, he had to do it twice (yipes! my back still hurts from that) but it was soooo worth it. This was by far the best delivery I have had. Virtually pain-free, and fast. I pushed three times, and Emmett was out and crying by 8:50am. He's my biggest baby, weighing in at 8 pounds and 5 ounces, and is such a little cutie. (I'm totally unbiased, of course.) I think he looks like a chubby Azure, with Calvin's mouth...but lots of people say they think he looks like Dan...we'll see.
The kids absolutely adore him. They fight over holding him, and Bella has been teary eyed several times because she will miss him while she's at school.
Thanks to all for your love and prayers! We're so glad he's here. Now the real fun begins!
