Party of Five.

So it's been a week already since my induction and we now have another sweet baby boy.

We arrived at the hospital ready to have a baby. It felt a little weird having an appointment to have a baby. We checked in and got admitted and around 7:30pm or so the nurses started the pitocin IV. I was already 4 cm and 70% effaced when we got to the hospital. The pitocin took forever to kick in. I really wasn't in any pain at all. Even once the contractions started coming it was like nothing compared to my labor with Easton. Finally the nurse said instead of prolonging the labor they would get the epidural started then break my water, so that's what they did. Once they broke my water the little guy was born about 3 hours later. This was the easiest labor and delivery for me out of the three. I only had to push for 10 minutes and through 3 contractions, so much easier than the previous two:))

On our way to the hospital.

Ready to have a baby:))

Taking a little stroll around the L&D floor. My butt and back were killing me from laying in bed.

Our sweet new baby boy.

We were expecting to be able to leave the hospital and go home on Friday but when they weighed him at midnight {they weigh all babies at midnight} he had lost 12% of his birth weight so we had to stay an extra day so they could watch him and make sure everything was good, which it was. His discharge weight was 8 lbs. 12 oz and his weight at his appointment Monday was 8 lbs. 14 oz. They are not sure why his weight went down so much and they said that it doesn't happen very often. He is good and healthy. So we were able to leave the hospital on Saturday....My birthday! My nurse brought me a little cupcake and piece of chocolate brownie cake, we took them home and had later that night for dessert.

Later that day these crazy kids came to visit.

 At the end of the visit Cameron finally said he wanted to hold him:)

 Getting ready to get him all buckled up for the ride home.
