Baby Von


He is here! I went into labor on Friday around noon and decided to beat Friday traffic, so we headed to the hospital about four. Overall, it was a really easy labor and delivery. When they admitted me I was dilated to a 5, and really not in much pain. I got my epidural at about seven o'clock (the most fabulous drug ever invented), and a little after 10 I was ready to push. After 12 minutes of pushing, he made his entrance, with a FULL head of brown hair. Ian says he looks like our UPS guy. He was 7 pounds 1 ounce and 20 inches, born at 10:32 pm on Friday, December 12th.
We are so happy everything went smoothly and since then he has been such a great baby, eating and sleeping really well for us. Here are a few pictures, I will post more later. His proud big sister.
