...Jacob Ryan!!! I know this is so late. We don't have internet and it has been a little busy at our house. Jacob joined our family Wed, June 24, at 3:43 am. He weighed 6 pounds 14 ounces and was 19 inches long. He is perfect in every way. We love this sweet boy so much!! Jacob's labor was so easy and very different from Dallin's labor. I had horrible back labor for 18 hours with Dallin. With Jacob, we went to the hospital and my doctor broke my water at 10:30 the night before. My contractions weren't that bad at that point and it wasn't back labor. But yes, I did get an epidural. He came 5 hours later after 15 min of pushing. I had to laugh because at 3 am I was already at a 10 and told not to push- whatever I do don't push until the doctor got there. I went from a 6 to a 10 in about 30 min. That was a long 20 min wait for my doctor to get there. He came out with a good cry and I knew our Heavenly Father had blessed us with one amazing little boy!! He is such a cuddler and a snuggler. We love our Jacob Ryan so much!!
Dallin is a great big brother. The first thing he wanted to do is to hold him and hug him and give him loves. He is always so soft with Jacob. It was so sweet when Dallin gets down at Jacob's level and in a soft voice starts to talk to him. They are already best friends.
A great story for Jacob to know.... on our way to the hospital we did get pulled over. It's about a 45 min drive to the hospital. My contractions weren't that strong and were every 5 to 10 min apart. Ryan was just excited and nervous. He was going 83 in a 65. The cop saw our stuff in the back seat and saw me and said he figured. But, he still took our stuff and went back to check us out. He did give us a warning and all I could do was laugh!! Poor Ryan- he will never live this down!!
