Look what the Easter Bunny brought us!!

Trevor Watson
Born April 2
8 lb 15 oz
20 in long The Story: Early Friday morning around 2 am my water broke-or more truthfully-it slowly started to leak. Having had my water break with my first two-and this one being significantly more subtle-I wasn't sure myself if I was in labor-especially since by noon (10 hours later) I wasn't feeling any contractions. I called my Dr and he said to go on down to Labor and Delivery at the Hospital just to make sure. So we got to the hospital at 12:30ish and soon find out that yep-my water had broken and I was taken away to get hooked up to some Pitocin. 2 hours later finally started to feel some contractions and by 4 pm they were increasing. By 7:30 I decided to get my epidural-which didn't work right and the anesthesiologist after several attempts to get it to work better put in another one around 9:15. 9:45 finally feel my epidural kick in-but guess what ?? 15 minutes later time to push. 10:15 Joe caught our little or shall I say big bundle of boyness. 2 weeks early and this lad weighed in at 1 oz shy of 9 lbs. Good thing he decided to come when he did right??

Congratulations, Arin! Did I tell you, or did I tell you?! ;) Of course, you didn't name him what I thought you would, but.... I'm glad he decided to come early, too. I think we all knew you were ready. :)
So adorable. Can't wait to come over and say hello. (Nice choice of new songs, btw.) Let me know what you need. Not kidding. If you need ANYTHING, call me. I'm so often running to the store for things we need here, I'm more than happy grab anything you might need while I'm there.
