He has Arrived...

Sunday, August 29, 2011 at 5:11 am our little Brett Reid entered this world as a healthy, strong and precious gift to our family. Labor and delivery went well. I had contractions all day at home and after being sent home once for no progress, we were back again at 7:00 pm with consistent hard and strong contractions. I was already dialated to a five when we got to the hospital so I was NEEDING the epidural. My IV hurt the worst and I wanted to punch that stupid nurse in the face. In fact, I think Cody AND the other nurse also wanted to punch her. She had me in complete tears because she kept digging with the needle into a nerve and not a vein. I started pushing at 4:40 am and at 5:11 am he had made his safe arrival. They placed Brett on my lap and I was in love. I just kept saying how perfect he was and how he looked just like Cole. He weighed 7 lbs 12 oz and was 21 1/2 inches long. He is such a sweet little boy. Totally perfect. Cole absolutely adores him and it hasn't even phased him that he doesn't have my full attention. Maybe he was just ignored before?....hahaha NO!
