Welcome Easton!

Wednesday, April 6 , 2011 (4 days before my due date), 11:55pm: we met you - the new love of our lives!! I was admitted to the hospital around 10am, after being sent by my doctor for high blood pressure. I was told they were going to do some labs and monitor my blood pressure, when the nurse came in and asked if I wanted to have you today. What the heck, why not? I called Daddy and he arrived just in time for them to break my water. It was a tolerable 12 hours of labor – thanks to the wonders of the epidural, and although the delivery could have been a little easier, I can’t really complain about 11 minutes of pushing and being rewarded with the most adorable, precious, happy, healthy baby boy! I will admit, I was a tad surprised when Daddy announced “It’s a boy!” – surprised, but overjoyed, nonetheless!

Grandma and Daddy were in the room for your arrival and they were great coaches! Papa, Aunt Coll, Aunt Clare, Papa Jim, Nana, Uncle Jim and Aunt Katie camped out in the waiting room all night just so they could meet you right away. We had several other visitors in the hospital, as people just couldn’t wait to meet you!

We went home on Friday. Your fur-brother Cooper was super excited to meet you and he has been great with you from the start. You guys are going to be the best of friends!

We're so lucky to have you! And, heck, you're pretty lucky to have us too!
I love you.
