Our Baby Boy has finally arrived!!

Well, I've been MIA from my blog lately but that is because we had our baby.

As stubborn as our little boy was, Mike and I were to report to the hospital on Wednesday, July 4th at 6 pm. I was admitted and then the doctor started cervidil. This form of induction is used to soften and ripen the cervix. It stayed inside my body for 12 hours. The next morning it was removed and Pitocin was started around 8 am. Here's picture of me after being admitted.

It was a long process and a little scary in the end but our little boy finally arrived safe and healthy on Friday, July 6th at 4:11 am. Sullivan Lorimer Nelson stole our hearts from the moment we heard his first cry. He weighed 7 lb 14 oz and 21 3/4 in long. Both Mike and I are shocked at this little string bean. We can't believe how long he is!!

He is perfect in every way and we feel so blessed God has gave us this miracle. We are so grateful for his health and all the prayers everyone has said for us. Sullivan has been doing great since we got home on Sunday afternoon. He sleeps and eats very well. In fact a couple of nights ago we even had a 5 hour stretch! 

Mike has downloaded some pictures of Sullivan's first couple of days onto his flickr website.  The hospital offers a professional photographer to come to your room the day after your baby is born. 

There will be many more pictures to come, Mike is constantly snapping shots of our boy. Just click on this link to view them!
