New Arrival

Who would guess that after going into labor on my own twice, my third baby would be a 41 week induction? It was a little odd to drive to the hospital and sit around waiting for things to begin, but, as I've been reminded quite a bit lately, nothing with babies goes as planned! Even so, after seven hours of labor, we were holding our son! We decided to let the gender be a surprise this time, and it was so much fun. Speaking of surprise, this one was our biggest yet at 8lbs 8oz, and was born with a head full of blonde hair! P's first name is after my Granny's father, and his middle name is after my Grandad. My Mom's parents are two of the most important people in my life, so I was thrilled that we agreed on a name that honored both of them.
