David James!

He was born Friday, March 12th at 7:45am. He was two weeks early and a big surprise! He is 6 pounds 11 ounces and 19 1/2 inches long.



Thursday evening I was so tired and decided to go to bed early. I was very unhappy when I started having contractions every 20-30 minutes because I thought they were plain ones that were just keeping me These went on, waking me up, all night long. At 4am the contractions starting coming every 6 minutes and they were not fun. I woke my dh and told him it was time. We woke Allison up because she had to work at 5:15am and then we took off for the hospital. I could tell that it wasn't going to be too long, based on my comfort level but was really hoping to make it in time for an epidural because these contractions were all in my back. Once we got there, they checked me and I was already at 6cm. The Dr gave me something for pain and I was able to get an epidural after an hour. He was born an hour later. Everything went so fast and smooth. He is a wonderful baby!

When Sophia met him, she looked at me and said, "Momma, can we buy him and take him home?" I told her
