He is finally here! Steven Mark was born on September 2, 2006 at 9:10 pm. He weighs 8 pounds and is 20 1/2 inches long. We ended up getting an appointment to induce him at 7 on Saturday morning and I was in labor for about 14 hours before he arrived. The first 10 hours went very slowly (I was dilated 5 cm at 5pm) but then once he decided to come; he came fast! It only took 5 pushes! The doctors and nurses were great and made our first days together much smoother.
We came home Monday afternoon and are adjusting well. Everyday gets a little easier. Steven is beautiful and such a joy. He is sleeping and eating well which makes things for Mommy and Daddy much easier. Thanks for your patience with this posting; we have had our hands full...literally, but are loving this wonderful little addition to our family.
