Welcome to the World, Simon Logan!

We made it! We are so excited to announce the arrival of our precious boy, Simon Logan. Born Wednesday, May 21st 2014 at 9:09AM. He weighed 7lbs 5.6oz, 20.25 inches long, and had a head full of dark hair. He is so handsome, and we are just smitten with him. It is such an amazing feeling to bring another baby into this world. Our hearts are just bursting with love and joy! God has truly blessed us.

      My labor went as well as it could go, really. But boy was it fast (no complaints)! My last prenatal appointment was the day before my due date, I was so anxious and was halfway waiting to here the Dr say, head to the hospital, you're in labor! However, that's not what happened. Lol. I was between 2-3cm and only about 60% thinned out. The Dr. expressed concern about my increased blood pressure levels, and so we opted to set an induction day of the following Wednesday (May 21st). 5 days later and still no baby, so it was INDUCTION TIME. We headed to the hospital at 4:00am - Arrived at 4:30 and finally got all set up in the hospital room about 5:45am.
     Funny thing is, I basically started having contractions right before they started hooking me up to the IV's and pitocin. At 6:15 I was 3-4cm dilated and 80% thinned out. An hour later my water broke and my contractions were already about 3 minutes apart. 8:30AM they finished giving me my epidural. Things were progressing so quickly, the nurse kept saying, "you're a house of fire! you're a house of fire!"
     The Dr came in and said I was between 8-9cm and that she was going to run to the office (across the street) real quick and come right back (it'll take two minutes she said). Little did she know that's about all it would take and I'd be ready to push! She got back to the room, out of breath from running back, and it was baby time! I had 3-4 sets of pushes and our beautiful baby boy arrived at 9:09AM. I am shocked at how quickly and smoothly my labor went (about 3 hours start to finish) Don't get me wrong, the contractions were horrible, my head was spinning, and the epidural didn't even have time to take full affect, but overall, it went great! I was able to have an hour of skin to skin contact, which was amazing, and something I didn't get to experience with Adeline.

 We were all curious how Adeline would do with her new baby brother, but all in all she seemed fairly interested and was very sweet with him.
Here are a few pictures of our new addition Simon Logan!
