Malakai

Well for those of you who don't know, I just gave birth to a very healthy baby boy!! My water broke at the doctor's office at around noon. I went right to the hospital (thanks Jamie for getting our bags!!) and they started pitocin to help the labor move along. After six hours of contractions, I was only dilated to a 3. While the nurse was checking me she thought things felt funny. My doctor came in and did an ultrasound and sure enough he was breach. This all happened right after I decided to get the epidural, so it was great timing. At that time they brought me right to surgery and I had a c-section. They did allow me to watch them taking him out of my stomach, which was really cool. He weighs 8 pounds 15 ounces! He is one big boy. He is also very content and very beautiful.
Take a look!!

This is our first family picture!! Isn't it great!
