He's HERE!

I'm writing from the klinikum (hospital). Our little boy decided he could wait no longer and on Wednesday I had the joy of going into labor....so much for labor free (planned c-section) pregnancies! LOL I labored all day and around 3:00 I could not take it any longer and made a couple phone calls to get Chad home, who was an hour away in the field and made unexpected/new childcare arrangements for the kids, and get a ride to the hospital. Because of previous c-sections my ob surgeon had told me when I scheduled my c-section that if I had contractions to come in. I got all hooked up to monitors, was checked (everything was still closed), and then waited with a friend and on Chad to see what was going to happen. The nurses and midwife kept going back and forth to "you'll be having your c-section today or in the morning or maybe next week as scheduled" it was a little annoying. Chad finally arrived and maybe 5 minutes later my ob surgeon walked in and said since I'd been having contractions the c-section was happening that night.

Noah entered this world, screaming and beautiful and perfect! I'll share pictures later! :)

GOD has truly blessed our family once again. The kids all love him and although Jacob wanted another sister, he's in love with his new baby brother and Jack is thrilled to have a little brother that he wanted, and Emma just wanted a baby and is her own little Heaven with "her" "Baby Noah"!!
