IT'S A BOY!


Trying to find a smile in between contractions.
ON OUR WAY....

Brigham(Brigg) Glen Jones has arrived! He even came a day earlier than expected! I was scheduled to go in on Mon, but that just wasn't happening. We were pretty excited that he decided to come early! I have to say that this was probably the best surprise I've ever had!! I will definitely do it this way again! I think most everybody was convinced it was a girl and Mike and I too were pretty sure, so that made it even more of a surprise when little Brigg was born. Everything went pretty well. I woke up around 5:00 having some pretty painful contractions coming every 10 minutes. I called in to be sure this was for real and was told to come on in. They were getting harder and harder so I knew I needed to hurry if there was any chance to get an epidural. I was already dilated to a 4 that friday so I knew it wouldn't be long. We called Rich over to be with the kids and then we were on our way. I got to the hospital and was dilated to a 7, but luckily they called the anaesthesiologist in right away. It took a couple tries to get it in right, but once it worked, boy did it work. I was finally in heaven, feeling no more pain!! Gotta love those guys!! I got to a 10 pretty quick after but my contractions started to weaken and weren't quite strong enough to do anything, so they ended up giving me a little pitosin to get them stronger. Long story short--it took longer than expected to get him here and his head was face up which makes it even harder, but after 45 minutes of pushing--he finally arrived!! He was born Mar. 7th at 11:17 am. He weighed 8 lbs. 11 oz. and is 21 in. long. I was exhausted!! We are glad to finally have our happy healthy boy! We feel really blessed to have such a healthy baby--Welcome to our family Brigg--We love you!!!

The kids did great!! They were all super excited to finally meet their little brother. It's been a while since we've had a baby around, so I think we're all ready!! Gotta love the 3 1/2 year gap. Charly has already been such a great help and not a lot of adjusting has to be done--she is just ready to be a big sister. And the boys are so sweet with him and want to hold him all the time. They are always worried about Brigg since he's had a little jaundice, they keep asking if he's ok. Babies are so good for kids, they just bring such a special spirit in our home. Well here we go--our family of 6--whew---that sounds like a pretty big family--hard to believe it's mine!! More pics to come....
