Baby today?!?!

Wait!! Today is Saturday, December 15th! Baby Jaime isn't due till Christmas Day - for real! We haven't even made it to the induction date of December 19th yet.

We were doing our Saturday thing, you know - cookie decorating party, Jaxon soccer game, short run - those kinds of things. Then all of a sudden Nicole started getting contractions that really hurt. They started out about 15 minutes apart at 10:00 a.m., then by 11:30 a.m. they were less than 10 minutes apart. Uh-oh!! Called the hospital, then the on-call Doc, went home got all our bags and we headed to the hospital.

By this time the contractions were almost unbearable for Nicole. They strapped her up to the monitors and first dilation check at 12:30 p.m. she was already a 7-8cm!! "Yep (the nurse says) you're gonna have a baby, we better get a room for you" Dr. Russell was on-call and when she came in and checked, Nicole was at a 9 and not even an epidural yet! Finally an epidural moments later and Nicole started to push. She pushed hard 10-12 times and we had a baby! Wham-Bam-Thank you ma'am. Nicole don't mess around!

Myles Patrick Jaime 8 lbs 6 oz, 20 inches arrived @ 2:44 p.m. Saturday, December 15th. Mom and baby are doing great, both are healthy. Today, we came home from the hospital and are starting to settle in. Jaxon is EXTREMELY proud of is new baby brother! Here, take a look at some photos:
