Magnum Royal is here!


Nine months of waiting finally paid off on Sunday the 9th when our baby finally got here safe and sound. I was not about to go back to work on monday, so we walked probably an extra 2 miles on Saturday to get him here before then. That and getting my membranes stripped on Friday combined with Jerusha climbing on my tummy made me pretty confident that I wouldn't have to go back and I was right!
To make a short story even shorter, my water broke at 3:00 (am) we made it to the hospital just after 4:00. I was at a 3 when they checked me, 2 hours later after about 2 and 1/2 laps around the L&D area I was ready to deliver. 15 minutes of pushing (probably closer to 10) and by 6:44 he was here! 6 lbs. 13 oz and 19 in long. He's the sweetest thing ever and we are so lucky to have such a healthy baby!

Oh I'm glad he came before we left! He just knew that we wanted to see him before we went home! I am so excited for you guys to start this new chapter in your lives. I know you both will make great parents and have lots to teach him! I want to see more pictures and see all the new things he learns! Don't ever wish he was doing something,because before you know it he is and you will wish for the past! It goes so fast to enjoy!! Keep in touch We love you all

So precious. I am so happy for you both. I want to see him soon so I can kiss his little face off. By the way, I am SHOCKED that he didn't come out at least 30 inches long, that is crazy!
Congrats!
