Baby Dane J

Dane was born on 8.10.10 at 1:53 p.m. We went to the hospital at 6:30 a.m. to be induced. They started the petocin and found out that I was already a 3, so they slowed the medication because I needed to have 4 hours of antibiotic because I had step b. I got the epidural, but it ended up only working on my right side, so I felt all the contractions only on the left side until I was a 8, and then they decided to give me a whole new epidural, so that was annoying, but I would still rather have two epidurals than no epidural! I was a ten before long and pushed for about 20 minutes and had him! He weighed 8lbs 15.2 oz, I thought for sure he would be smaller than Brynne, but I was wrong :) He was having trouble breathing because he had a lot of liquid in his lungs, he had to be in the NICU for about 18 hours, but he is doing great now! We came home Thursday, and had a LONG first night, but last night was better. We took Dane on his first adventure today to Payson Lakes, it was gorgeous and he did great. Brynne just loves him and wishes she could carry him around and tickle him all the time, so that is scary but I'm glad she loves him! Dane is the sweetest thing, and I love all his dark hair! I thought he would be a blondie! He is such a blessing and we are so grateful for him!!

He is so sweet Dione, I love it! I love the picture of Brynne holding him, such a good big sister. That's the beauty of having girls first. I guess I don't know what a boy would be like, but I like to think its best. :)

He is sooo cute! I just want to cuddle with him all afternoon! I'm glad everything went ok. Scary about his breathing, but I'm glad he is ok! You look amazing and I can't believe you have already gone up to mountain! You are an inspiration! Hopefully we can come see him sometime soon! Congrats!

Holy smokes, your family is adorable! Makes me want to have another one . . . almost :) Oh, and Mark votes that Taylor needs x-lax in his brownies--not a nice thing, and justice definitely overrides mercy on this one!!
