We have a new member in our family!

Please welcome our brand new son Mikah Jared!! He was born at 6:11 pm!! It happened VERY quickly!! :-)

Stats:
6 lbs 12 oz
20 inches long
Head: 13 1/2 inches

Started having contractions at 2 am to 7 am......got to the hospital and the contractions STOPPED!! UGH!!! Hung out for a while then got discharged. Went to John's parents and took a nap. Had a meal and then went to run some errands.....picked up Little N and then went to some banks and the park. Contractions started again and started to get progressively stronger. Went and picked up my mom from the airport, then went to pick up some stuff that would be nice to have.....contractions picked up.....called hospital, got Little N, John and Mom food. Went to the hospital and had very uncomfortable contractions!! Got checked.....and we knew we weren't leaving (7 cm....then even more).....bag of water was down.....once they broke the water they realized that Little M was breech....butt first....which got everyone nervous (especially with me being a VBAC) but there was no time for an epidural or even a c-section. By the time I got on the hospital bed till the time he was born was 40 minutes. Once he was out he was fine, I was fine and everything settled down quite a bit!!

Little N got to meet his new little brother and Grandma D was a great help because she watched Little N at the end part of my labor. We've had lots of fun visitors and we welcome anyone who wants to come up to see us. (We are at Innovis) Little M is doing great.....here are some pictures!
