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.
