Deacon Kyle Scott

...has arrived!!!!

I have always promised myself not to be one of those "tmi" people who go into graphic detail about things acquaintances shouldn't know. I'll try my best to stay in that category. :)

Friday morning we woke up at 5:00 am and called the hospitals Labor & Delivery Department to see if there was room for me to be induced; there was and I was told to arrive by 7:15am. We went ahead and stayed up because we were way too excited and nervous to go back to bed. On the way out the door we took one last picture of my belly (excuse the hair and lack of makeup, it was too early to mess with all of that...)

In the words of Carson: I was officially done cooking!!

We arrived to the hospital early, so I was hooked up to the iv and ready to start by 8:00am. The iv is always the hardest part for me, and once I get past that the rest is easy breezy. Our doctor showed up about that time to check on me and break my water.

At 10:00am the hospital gods came in and gave me my epidural. There are no words to describe the gratitude I have for those people. From that point on I never felt one bit of pain or contraction.

12:30pm - Doctor came back and checked on me. She said she thought it would be about dinner time when I would have Deacon.

4:00pm - Nurses decide I am ready!! They call our doctor back, who is with her last patient of the day and says she will be right over.

4:30pm - Our doctor arrives & the pushing begins.

4:38pm - Deacon enters the world!!!

While they cleaned Deacon up we all guessed how much we thought he would weigh. Our nurse thought 8 lbs. 13oz. and we told her no way, he was not that big. Our doctor guessed 8 lbs. 5 oz., and Brian and I agreed with her. They set him on the scale and he came in at a whopping 9 lbs. 5oz.!!! Carson was 7 lbs. 13oz. & I thought labor with him had been so much harder!!

Once they were done cleaning him up and taking stats, he was handed back to us like a bundled little package:

We made a promise to Carson that he would get to be Deacon's first visitor, so Brian went to the waiting room and brought back our new big brother.

He literally skipped into the room, beaming from ear to ear:

...and was instantly ready to hold him:
We made him pose for a picture first:
...then the snuggling could begin:

Once Carson got his fill, the Grandma's came in to check him out:

...and more visitors:

Let me just say as a completely biased mother, he is the most perfect baby and already reminds us of Carson made over!
