Reed's Birthday

I saw Dr. Chauhan for my regular visit on October 14th. We had made plans to do an amnio on November 4th and if his lungs were mature then we'd have a baby on the 5th. But, she said, "he may jump the gun on us." Yep, he did. When I went to bed on Friday night never in my wildest dreams did I think we'd have a baby by the next morning. At 3:15 a.m. my water broke. I drove myself to the hospital and Stephen stayed with the little ones until Aunt Jane could get there and stay with them. By the grace of God she happened to be in town that day. Don't know what we would have done without her. She has saved me many more times than I can count! At 5:33 we rolled back to the OR and at 6:01 Reed made his appearance. He came out pink and screaming. My parents and Heather got there shortly after and brought the kids to come meet their baby brother. They all seemed to like him but Jack especially did. So far, so good.
Those chubby cheeks are the ones I fell in love with on his ultrasounds.

Jack brought Reed a Scooby Doo. He later decided he would "keep it safe" for Reed until he was old enough to play with it.
