Our baby is here!

Brady Joseph Stafford was born at 11:05am!!!!!!!!!!! It was a very fast labor/delivery. My doctor broke my water at 9am. By 10:15am, I got an epidural. It wasn't working very well, which was an indicator that I was moving fast. At 10:30 I was at a 6. I just kept feelng horrible pressure 'down there.' You can guess how fast things moved since he was born shortly thereafter.
I thought of AJ as I felt way more this time around...ouch! The doctor had to use the vacuum as his heart rate dropped. The nurse said that happens when it moves that quickly. Anyway it was painful, fast, and now he is here. The kids will be up in an hour or so to meet their brother.
Pictures to come in a few days. Thanks for all your love and support!

Congrats, Bonnie and Thad. I bet the kids are so excited. Glad to hear things went fast. Brady is such a cute name. Take the time to rest now while you are in there. See you sometime after you get home.
