He's here!

Julie was scheduled to be induced this morning. We arrived at the hospital and we were immediately given a room to settle into. With a few "cc's" of bliss, a couple hours of labor, and 15 minutes of pushing, we were introduced to our new (nameless) baby boy at 11:12 am. Julie rocked the delivery room! And daddy didn't do too bad either (definitely not "weak sauce" Christy!) With several cookies and some juice, I stayed upright through the whole thing!

It took us a while but we finally decided on a name for our little guy, DANE KENNETH. We debated for hours, but we stuck with what we had been thinking all along. He's a looker...just like his daddy! By far our smallest so far. Dane is 6 lbs 14 oz, 19 in long...that's 2 lbs lighter than Kelson, and 3 lbs lighter than Brynlie! He's so small!

Brynlie was drawn right to him. She is such a sweet and loving big sisters. She is so proud to be a new big sister and loves baby Dane so much. Kelson on the other hand was a little turned off with the idea of sharing mommy when he first saw the baby. He wouldn't even come into the room. After some "daddy time" he warmed up to holding his little brother. After that, Kelson didn't want to let him go. He enjoyed showing daddy his little brother's "ise", "no-sss", "eeers", and "air".

Mommy is looking great and feeling good. She never even broke a sweat! Baby Dane is eating well and has already had 3 poopy diapers. That's my boy!


Love,

Daddy

  9. Yay!!! He is seriously so cute! I am glad that special K warmed up to him. It is so cute to see the pictures of the kids holding him. I think that Brynlie is going to be good help, do you think she'll let me hold him?

  18. Awww congrats! Dane is SUCH a cute name! So he's born on my little brother's birthday (March 26) and my little brother's middle name is Kenneth. What are the odds, huh? Congratulations!! I never thought you guys would produce a small baby, but I hope you enjoy it. Hyrum was only 6 lbs 8 oz and he has stayed small his whole life. I have seriously LOVED having a tiny superguy -- they stay babies for longer that way!

    Jeremy, Dave is bound to laugh when he hears you need cookies and juice to survive the delivery of your 3rd child. Haha!
