Welcome Baby Cayden

Last Tuesday at my weekly appointment my blood pressure was elevated so I had to go back to the office Thursday morning so that the doctor could check my blood pressure again. I was 38 weeks and 2 days and my blood pressure was higher than it had been on Tuesday so my doctor said there wasn't a question about it and I needed to head across the parking lot to the labor and delivery hall! Jonathan actually talked her into letting me go home with him to drop a car off so that Jes could have a carseat to pick Adalyn up from the sitter. Oh and I needed to grab my hospital bags. We were able to get one last belly picture leaving the house!
I knew that there was a good chance that she could tell me that it was "baby day" but I was still in a bit of shock when she told me. I mean, I was excited to meet my baby, but I also had the August 7th date circled in my calendar and it was crazy to think I would meet him 12 days earlier than that!

I will do another post with more details about the big day, but I hear Mr. Man waking up so I'll just post a few pictures of my sweet baby!!! Cayden was born July 26, 2012 at 8:17pm. He weighed 6lbs 12oz and was 19.5 inches long.

 Adalyn loves her baby brother. She immediately gave him hugs and kisses when she walked into the room and met him. It was so cute! She is still so good with him.
 Our first family of four picture. We are so blessed!
