He's HERE!

>> Wednesday, September 17, 2008





Name: Gabriel Scott Cotton
Birthdate: September 14th, 2008
Weight: 9 lbs, 1 oz
Height: 21 inches





So something worked! After waiting a bit for those pesky contractions to help me out a bit, we headed to the hospital. I wanted to be sure i had time to register and all that. They were about 5 minutes apart and werent horrid, but not very comfy either. They said they would admit me and the doctor on call would come in to break my water. They went ahead and gave me an epidural since the contractions would get worse after the water breakage. And suddenly 4.5 hours later, i had a baby in my arms! It was crazy! With my first labor just so so harsh, i wasn't expecting much better. In comparison, this labor was a breeze. And my doctor (not my normal doctor) was PHENOMENAL! He was very attentive and immediately asked me questions about my tailbone when i mentioned it broke during my first delivery. And though i was told that i'd "be lucky if it didnt break", luck was on my side and it didnt! I really think this doctor being very attentive is why it didnt break. I wont go into all those gory details, but i was very pleased with my entire hospital team.

As for life adjustments... It still hasnt totally hit me that i have 2. My mom is in town for a bit so i definitely havent felt the stress of 2. Jack is wonderful with Gabe. He just LOVES to hold him, and kiss him. If you put Gabe in his lap he just sits so still and stairs down and him and kisses his head. it really is so adorable! The first time Jack came to visit Gabe and I in the hospital he exclaimed to me "That's my baby brother!" and he immediately asked if he could hold him. When i put Gabe i his arms he looked at him and quietly said in the cutest and quietest voice "Hi! I'm Jack!" It was really too precious for words. Of course when he's not holding the baby he's completely forgotten there is a baby around and returns to his crazy 2.5 year old self running around like a Jack Rabbit (i guess the pun is intended). But we'll work on that. haha.

So thats all i have for now. Of course i'd still like to work on some crafts and what not, but i'll need to get used to life. So i will be peeking in and maybe even have a card or 2 while my mom is still in town. We shall see!!!! :)

Congratulations Katie!! He is beautiful :)Glad everything went well - I think if first babies were as easy to have as second babies, we'd all have five or six!
