Colt McCoy is finally here!!

So I was scheduled to be induced Monday the 11th, a week before I was actually due because I had been walking around dilated at a 4 for almost 3 weeks and I was super miserable. Having bad contractions for days on end. I was nervous about being induced, but I was so totally over being pregnant and that uncomfortable. But Colt was awesome and knew how nervous I was and so at 2:30 am the day of the induction, he decided he would come on his own! I woke up right at 2:3o with a super strong contraction and I knew right then that it was the real deal. I got up, brushed my teeth, got my bag together and woke up Bobby. We got to the hospital at about 3:15. I was dilated to a 5 1/2....15 minutes later I was at a 7 1/2....HOLY CRAP it was moving fast and I was sorta freaking out. This labor was by far the most painful. I thought that my midwife did a great job of trying to keep me distracted and get through the pain okay, but i'm sorry, it was still hell. Lucky for me, it didn't last too long. It was just super intense, but all worth it when he made his grand entrance at 5:23 am. 7.2 lbs 18 1/2 inches and so adorable. A good mix of his older brothers I think. Champ and Kasper are so good with him and couldn't be happier to be big brothers.

I was in so much pain, I couldn't fake a smile....


Daddy was just as excited as the boys.
Ready to head out into the cold to go home....
