William Kerry arrived on Tuesday 5/19/09 at 5:56pm!
Bit of a surprise that Tuesday morning as I was up for one of my many bathroom breaks walking back to the bed and thought 'I made it through another night.' Got back into bed and was making myself comfortable when... WHOA! I jumped back out of bed because... that's right folks, my water broke at 5:45AM! And I am good --- not any of it on the bed. Since my water broke the Dr. told me to go to the hospital --- I didn't rush since I wasn't having any contractions yet. Got to the hospital about 8:30ish, active labor started about noonish, pushed Kerry out shortly before 6pm... with Tom by my side and the 2 moms in the room. It was so amazing to hear the Dr. say "It's a boy" and place my son on my chest... there was not a dry in the room. Well, maybe the Dr.=0) Kerry weighed in at 7'10 and 20 inches long.
For those of you who don't know Kerry is named after his Grandpa's! We love you! XOXO
