Brody




So here are some pictures of our newest family member. Brody was born Nov. 18th at 11:20am after a VERY fast labor - he didn't even wait for the person giving the epidural (I couldn't spell it) to leave the room. As my Dr. was running in and getting her gloves on -- there comes Brody! He was 7# 4oz. (same as Max) and 21 1/4 inches. So far he is a good sleeper (he let me sleep 4 hours at a time last night) We'll see what he does his first night home! So far all the kids are loving him, especially Max, who is really soft and gentle with Brody. Brody is pretty easy going, he doesn't cry very much at all, even when he was circumcized. When he's awake he just looks around and takes it all in. Ryan brought the kids to the hospital to eat dinner w/ us last night and Brody dealt very nicely with all the mauling, but I guess Heavenly Father knows what we can handle and won't send a first child personality to a fourth child position!

Yeah pictures! I have been obsessively checking your blog waiting for these. Congrats, and I wish to high heaven I was given the same super-fast labor genes mom apparently passed on to you.
