Kirye Scott is in the house...


Yesterday was the 6am scheduled induction. We arrived around 6am and were escorted to the "suite" at the end of the hall...a spacious corner room with a view of the city. So we were just hanging out, going through the regular admitting process. Jill wasn't feeling any pain or much discomfort. Since she was dilated 4 cm, which I guess is pretty progressed, the nurse decided to keep checking in on her. So, about 2 hours later, the nurse decided to just give her the epidural for whatever reason. One and a half hours later, the nurse just decided to routinely check her out....and the baby was on it's way! So, about 15 minutes later, Kirye Scott was born! He weighed 6 lbs 15 ozs and was 19 inches long. He has tons of shaggy hair and looks like a "smurfer" (a smurf and a surfer). We are so happy and blessed to have such loving family and friends around us for support and thank you all.

I have to edit this a little. They broke my water at 7:45. I got the epidural at 8:15, and Kirye was born at 9:40. So, overall it was less than 2 hours. They said it was a good thing I scheduled an induction because if I would've gone in to labor on my own and then came to the hospital, I might not have made it, or might not have been able to get an epidural!!

Oh, my gosh, look at that hair!!!!! FUN!!! I am cracking up because it's so cute.

You are sooo lucky it went so quick! When I was in the delivery room with my friend, they induced her at 6 a.m. and she didn't have the baby until 7:30 THAT NIGHT!!! It was so boring! Ha ha.
