Brady Edward is here!

Our sweet baby Brady Edward is here! He joined our family April 29 at 6pm! We went in that afternoon around 2ish to be induced and by 3, my doctor came in to break my water, by 4 I was getting an epidural, and by 6 Brady was born!! It was a little scary for a few minutes during the delivery as his heartbeat dropped and he almost got stuck, but thankfully Dr. Robbins was able to get him out by delievering his shoulder/arm first then getting the rest of him out! When he came out we were all shocked at how big he was!! A whopping 9 lbs 6 oz, 20 inches long! WOW!! I was thinking in the 8 lb range, not a 9 lb baby! The next few days in the hospital were great, we got great sleep and had lots of visitors! As we were getting ready to leave on Saturday, we were told that we had to stay an extra night because Brady had a slight case of jaundis and had to be under lights till the next morning! That was hard, but we wanted to make sure he was healthy so we stayed an extra night! We were finally able to leave Sunday evening about 5:30pm and were so glad to get home!

our first week at home has been great! Marlee loves her little brother and is so sweet with him! My parents have been a HUGE help this week! I don't think I could've survived without them!!!

We are so blessed to have 2 health kids at home and can't wait to see what the future holds for them!

Last picture pregnant! About to get the induction underway! 38+ weeks preggo!
