IT'S A BOY!!!!!


Everybody say hello to Brady Matthew! On Saturday, April 7, 2007 at 3:31pm, our first little bundle of joy entered the world. Brady weighed in at a hefty 6lbs 9oz. and 19 inches long! It looks as though his eyes are leaning toward brown.



In the photo above, Brady's in the center, the man with the goofy 'Look what I did' smile is my hubby Matt, and the rough looking woman is me :). We were doing a baby looks like mommy or daddy photo? We can't tell, but everybody thinks Brady has my nose.

Birth was a breeze. (how often do you hear that?) Course that could have been because of demeroil (sp?) AND epidural (sp?). High blood pressure jumped out of no where on me, and I had to take med's because we didn't want to chance the stress of pain upping my blood pressure. I jumped from a big 5cm to 10cm in 45 minutes-which I slept through. And about 10 minutes after that, a handful of pushes later, and he flew into the doc's arms!

Big big big congrats!! That said....

I so hate you, lol!! Jumped into the doctor's arms!!! It's women like you who have a ton :). It took me nearly three years to forget the 12 hours of agony and C-section recovery enough to try for another, lol.

Hugs girl. Get lots of napping in and enjoy that cutey. He's really one of the most lovely little newborns I've ever seen.
