He Just Couldn't Wait!!

Boy have things been crazy lately!  The kids have been going to preschool and are adjusting well! 

Last Saturday, we celebrated Jack's 2nd birthday with a choochoo party at our house! He had a fun time and the weather cooperated for it to be an outside party - whew! Naturally, once I go through the pictures, a separate post will be done.

Saturday afternoon/night, Brad and I had a staycation/babymoon...we went to see Neighbors, checked into a local hotel, and then went to a nice dinner - it was so nice!

There was one slight "issue"....I was in LABOR! Yes....I woke up Saturday morning at 2:45 and was having contractions every 5-5.5 minutes! Thank GOODNESS things calmed down enough to have Jack's party! And then I relaxed and drank lots of water and we headed out to go to a movie!  So fast forward to about10:30 Saturday night and I decided it'd be good to go to sleep...which only lasted about two hours! I started having stronger contractions around 12:30 and they were getting stronger and more frequent! I finally told Brad we needed to head to the hospital at 3:07...they were about 4-4.5 minutes apart!

I'll do a more detailed "birth story" post, but to sum it up, we got to the hospital and determined I was in active labor!! I ended up with a c-section since I had had two previous ones...and so within less than two hours, we got to meet our sweet miracle baby!

Ryan was born at 6:39am and weighed 6 lbs, 15 oz and was 19.25 inches long!
Big sister Katie and big brother Jack were big fans for sure - it was simply amazing to see my THREE kiddos together!

I'm still in the hospital - should be able to head home tomorrow!

I will do additional posts of everything with pictures from the real camera! Thank goodness for iPhone cameras!
