Mish won't be participating in the VC anymore... (he's here!)

...because she is on her way to the hospital! She said she is pretty sure her water broke. I will keep you posted as I get more information. I'm so excited to "meet" baby J!

Update 4:30 CST
Her water has definitely broken. Fingertip dilated. Contrax are 3-5 min apart. She is officially checked into the hospital. Smile

4:02AM Josiah Jeffrey Athanasius was welcomed into the world with no pit, completely natural. Apgars 2 and then finally 8. She said she only saw him for about 2 minutes before he was whisked away for further check. Her DH was with him and she was hoping to see him soon when she texted me this AM. 20 inches, 7lbs, 11oz.

How exciting! ELVs Mish. I know she was hoping she would go by herself instead of being induced, sounds like she got her wish. Thanks for updating us Carrie, KUP if you hear anything else.

Hi Everyone! I wasn't supposed to come home until this afternoon, but Northern IA was supposed to (and did) get hit with an ice storm this morning, so we convinced the doctor to let us go last night. Extra days were because of Josiah. The machines didn't detect it, but the cord wrapped around his neck and was why he didn't breathe at first. He's an amazing fighter though and bounced back quickly (good thing- no NICU at my hospital). He didn't even cry for his circ (just a squeak for the shot before it).

We are so very much in love and so loving having our family of 6 stranded at home (so much better then at the hospital).

I'll post more later... my dad left this morning, so it's just DH and me with 4 kids until Sunday which means I'm a bit more tired then I was bringing the other ones home.

So glad that Josiah is okay! And that y'all were able to get home safely. Enjoy these days of having a newborn!

Your FB pictures are adorable. The kids look like they're enjoying their new little brother. Smile
