Welcome Baby Steven!

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.

YAY! Welcome to our world Steven! Laura, your 5 push labor inspires me, I hope I'm that lucky! I just pray that I get my mom's short labor history too (I think Amanda and I were both born within 5 hours of the onset of labor):) Keep us posted and Praise God! :)
