Talking I did it! Our new baby has arrived!

and we have another gorgeous boy!

oliver joseph arrived on thursday, 11.15.07, at 12.54 pm after 7 1/2 hours
of the most insane and intense pain i could ever imagine! and he's totally
worth it, of course. he was 8 lbs. 10 oz and 20 1/4 inches long. i think he looks a lot like jack did as a baby. he's nursing like a champ (as i'm typing actually).

this time was a lot harder, which, after jack, i did not think was even possible. i did it totally drug free, and it's a good thing, because he was posterior and had his poor little head cocked to the side, so he was REALLY
hard to birth! i managed though after two hours of pushing. and only a second degree tear! let me tell you, the distance between a second and a fourth degree is about a million miles. i did injure my tailbone really badly again, so that's the one thing keeping me from feeling great.

jack is taking really well to oliver. he's extremely interested in everything baby related, and keeps saying "BABY!!" when he sees him. it's really
cute. we have to be really protective of poor little oliver though b/c his head is seriously bruised from his rough entry, and he even has some blisters on top of his head from the pressure. jack is learning the art of "gentle" with his little brother.

well, there you have it! it was a long nine months but in the end, tyler and i have two beautiful boys to love!


ps, we've been too busy to upload pics, but here is a link to the hospital website so you can see a couple of pictures.
