Ian James Badger






Today at 4:03AM, we welcomed the 8 lb 14 oz, 21 inch Ian James Badger into the world!  It all began last night about 9PM after having a delicious pizza dinner (Coincidentally, Brooklyn was born after pizza night as well).  We got some things ready and I tried to get a little sleep before Desirae woke me up at 2AM.  By that time the contractions were pretty steady coming every 3 minutes.  We called the doctor and she told us to come on over to the hospital.  

We arrived at the hospital just after 3AM after dropping Brooklyn off at our friends, the Southwicks.  Desirae really wanted to get an epidural this time, but she was already dilated to a 5 or 6.  And the only anesthesiologist in the hospital was down in the OR for a C-section so Desirae missed out on that pain killer.  However,  she was pretty tough enduring the contractions with minimal screams and irritated comments about the anesthesiologist not coming.  But in the end, Desirae cried tears of joy as Ian was placed into her arms.  It was a great moment as most of you know.

Yahoo! What exciting news : )Glad to hear that all went well (relatively speaking) and that everyone is healthy! Now there's more room to fill up on Thanksgiving dinner (and more hunger to do so trying to keep a newborn fed!)
