Evan is here! Picture added :)

Hello everyone! Well... Evan is here after having to be induced yesterday (7-12). Induction started around 9 something and he was born at 5:07. Here's the quick story:

Came to the hospital 4 cm dilated and 80% effaced. Pitocin started at 9 on the lowest dose and after 4 hours there was no progression so they kept upping the dose. The last check I had by the doc she said I was 5 cm and would come back to break the water. Well... we waited and waited for the doc for what seemed like eternity. When the doc finally came and broke the water the baby was born 20 minutes after with only 3 pushes. I was able to have my natural birth, but I must say it was definitely an experience. I was able to tolerate the Pitocin contractions but after the water was broken, those contractions were a BEAST. Anyhow, I think that's pretty much it. He's doing fine and has been a great eater. We are praising the Lord he is actually bigger than they expected.

Thank you everyone! He is a great nurser (unlike his sister) and we are really enjoying him. I am tired, but it has not been that bad the second time around. God is really good and I can definitely feel His grace. Thanks ladies for getting me through the last 9 months Wow....I can't believe we are all either done with the race or at the finish line
