On Wednesday Noveber 28, 2012 at 4:00 am, our alarms went off for us to do some last minute things before we went to the hosp to have our 2nd baby boy. I took a bath, repacked my hosp bag, and did my hair and makeup. My mom came in the night before to help with Rome and to come to the hosp for delivery. It was peace of mind to know that she was here! we left right at 5 to go to the hosp.
39 week belly!
Once we got there we had to snap a quick pic! we delivered at Siloam's new hosp- it was gorgeous and we had such a great experience! We had to fill out paperwork for a little while- then around 6:15 the started my IV. I was dialated to a 3 and was 75% effaced. At 7:45 I got my epideral- we had requested Dr. Cooper because we had heard that he was a very good anesthesiologist- and we were not disappointed!
He was so excited to meet baby Gray!
Looking at his toes
He was in awe of how small Gray was.
Max, Maggie, and xander got to come in after the special Roman time.
That night, mom took Rome home and stayed with him. Duke had a basketball game. This was Grayson's first game :)
minutes after birth...
Grayson Noble Dees was born November 28 2012 at 3:34 pm. He weighted 7 lb and 14 oz and was 20.5 inches long.
We went home the next day- 25 hours after he was born!
It was such a great experience. Labor was hard work but the epidural made it very tolerable and overall painless. We are so blessed!
