Well, sure enough it wasn't an hour after my last post and I went into labor. At some point, I'll write out the whole long birth story, but all I'll say is starting at noon the contractions began coming and kept coming so much that we went into the hospital, then stalled for a bit so they broke my water, then I got an epidural, then they gave me some pitocin to speed things along, calmly watched Catch Me If You Can and they checked me and I was ready to push, 2 pushes and "IT'S A BOY!" at 7:25pm. Noah Charles was 7lb 13 oz and 20 inches long. He latched on right away and has been sleeping a lot, like all newborns do. Things have been so much easier and calmer this time. It's nice having two years of parenting and 1 year of breastfeeding under my belt. We are so in love and enjoying every moment.
JM came and met his new brother this morning. Hopefully he shares this sentiment when we actually bring Noah home. :) LOVE this picture. Much more to come!
