look what we got.....

Little Aiden is here!!!! he was born on wednesday the 17th a 7:54 pm. 7lbs, 3oz and 19 3/4 in long. i have to say that it was probably the shortest labor EVER!! considering that i was already at a 4, i knew it was going to be quick. my mom came up to take some measurements of rylees windows for her curtains at around 5:00 and thats when my contractions started, so i told her she had better hurry and get home to change her clothes and get back up here. oh, and lets not forget that mike had decided it was a good time to buy a bunch plants for the yard and start a little project..... was not happy about that. i dont know why nobody believes me when i tell them i am in labor!!! so, we finally get to the hospital and i am at an 8 and was so exited when they told i could still get an epidural. he was still a little high so they told it would work in time. i was a 9 when i finally got it and it worked just in time!!! i only had to push a few times and he was out! and can i just say that when you dont have an episiotamy(sp??), the recovery is so easy! he is such a good baby and the girls love him to death! we got so lucky with him, he really is so good. i dont know what i would do if he was any different. he pretty much just sleeps and eats and poops and sleeps some more.....isnt that the life? rylee LOVES him and always wants to hold him. she is very protective of him too. adyson is doing a lot better than i thought she would. she will give him hugs and kisses and want to lay on him, so that is kind of scary sometimes but other than that she doesnt really mind him being around and me holding him and feeding him. here is a few pics that we have gotten so far.....

He is so beautiful. He makes me realize how litle Presley isn't anymore. Anyways, congrats glad to hear you got the epidural. Sounds very similar to what happened with me. I received mine and 8 minutes later pushed Landon out. Totally worth it though just for the pushing!!

Congratulations Ashley! He is so cute! I'm glad it was a quick delivery for you! I love that you have a little boy in the mix. Sara is so messed up calling him a "little leprechaun" but I know how she teases you with that! I can't wait to see more and more pics of this cute cute boy!

Okay, so he totally looks like he is your kids. Good thing huh? Makes me baby hungry, so I'm glad that I am already pregnant. Life is going to get a whole lot harder though, I know!

I haven't seen this post yet! I love that picture of them after bath time. Adorable. Okay, so let's for sure do pictures in the snow now since we didn't get to do them in the leaves. Talk to mike (when he's in a good mood!)
