The Baby Story: Part 2~

Our baby is here!!

Walker was born on Tuesday, October 25 at 957 am.

8lbs 13oz; 22 1/2 inches.

Walker's birth story is actually very similar to Charlie's.....only 10 times faster!

I woke up Tuesday morning around 330am with a Braxton Hicks contraction.

I couldn't go back to sleep. Couldn't get comfortable. So, I went downstairs and watched tv until I felt tired again.

I woke up at 530am with a seriously painful, REAL contraction. With Charlie, the contractions came about 30minutes - 1 hour apart at first. With Walker, they were 10 minutes apart right off the bat.

I waited for about 30 minutes and then decided that I had to wake up Noel and call the doctor. I called the doctor and he said that I should make an appointment for early that morning to check things out. I told him that I really thought this baby was coming, so he "okayed" me to go in to the hospital.

My brother-in-law, Curtis, came over to stay with Charlie, and Noel and I headed off to the hospital around 630am.

We got to the hospital around 7am, barely had time to get an epidural, put the pushing on hold for 5 minutes so my mom could make it to the hospital, and Walker arrived at 957am.

Beautiful, baby boy Walker. We love you so much.

Hurray on a super fast labor! I'm so excited and happy for your sweet family. Love all his fluffy hair too. Can't wait to meet him in person. You'll need to bring him when you come VTing!! I'll hold Walker while Charlie plays with Sydney the dog. :)

Congratulations to you all! What an amazingly fast birth story. I hope round two goes so smoothly for me. I love all of the photos, but especially the ones with Charlie and Walker together--too cute!

Harper (my second) came SUPER fast (less than 3 hours from start to finish). It was crazy! I don't have time for an epidural. I wrote her birth story on my blog (back in May 2011) if you want to read it. It's pretty good (if I do say so myself).
