Baby Jack is Here!

Just a very quick update because I am so tired I can't see straight:

"Little" Jack was born today, 4/9/15, at 5:20am via C-section. 9lbs6oz and 19inches!! Nice big boy. He is HEALTHY!!!! Absolutely no special care required. He is beautiful and perfect with big chubby cheeks, tiny limbs, and a full head of hair just like his daddy. We are so in love.

As you can see we didn't make it to Friday - I had contractions off and on the last few nights and then all through the day yesterday. Throughout the night they got more intense and frequent and we came to the hospital around 2:45am and learned I was already 6cm dilated! That really set the wheels in motion for the C/S so once IV was in, blood was drawn, etc and they checked again I was at 8cm! The rest was a whirlwind but all went smoothly and we're both doing well. I'll write more an post pics as soon as I can!!

Thank you for all the well wishes!! Hubs and I really are over the moon :-)
