Mollie gave birth to a healthy 6.7 lb, 21inch baby boy today at 0159 am, Dylan Robert Newman.
Yesterday we had a routine 38 week appointment and our doctor determined that Mollie had low Amniotic Fluid volume and he wanted us to come in for an induction.
1 pm: Admitted to Hospital
2 pm: Drug administered to start labor (pitocin)
4 pm: Water broke430 pm: contractions began
8 pm: Mollie around 8 cm dilated
1130 pm: Mollie completely dilated and began to push
0159 am : Baby born
Mollie and Dylan shortly after delivery
Mollie and Karalee - Mollie and I relied on our awesome birthing nurses who guided us through this, Epidural free. Karalee not only educated us in our childbirth education classes she was assigned to be our nurse through the toughest part of the 9 hour labor.
More to come very soon.

We had a nice time last Friday at cousin Jessie's wedding. It was nice to see family and friends and I got tons of baby advice from cousin Mark's wife Jess. As a new mom, she knows what we're in for...
Sophie gave us a run for our money (literally) on Saturday. An emergency vet visit and >$200 later, we hope to have a healthy kitty again soon.
Monday night was Ryan's night out with the guys and Tuesday night was his night in with the guys (Alan and Justin came over for beef stroganoff).
I wonder if the guys are going to come around when Baby's here...I wonder if guys' nights involve babysitting...
