We arrived at the hospital on Wednesday morning at 5 a.m. for a scheduled induction. Based on our last ultrasound, Nolan was expected to be a big boy and if a normal delivery was going to happen, he needed to come as soon as possible. After about 11 hours of painless labor (thanks to a wonderful epidural), I heard the nurse say, "turn on the baby warmer - it's time for her to push." Nolan's head was 14 inches in diameter, so it took quite a bit of pushing before his entrace into the world. After an hour and a half, he arrived just in time for Wednesday night church - 6:28 p.m. Nolan weighed 8 lbs, 14 oz and was 20.5 inches long. What a gift to be apart of such a wonderful miracle. We'll forever treasure the first moment we laid eyes on our new son. His big bright eyes and head full of blonde hair were a beautiful sight indeed. Thank you God for a healthy baby and a safe delivery. It's still hard to believe he's actually ours.
Jeremy's first moment with Nolan. A few seconds later, Jeremy noticed the front of his shirt was soaked with pee. Welcome to fatherhood!
