Early

I am a Mumma! All of a sudden! Our little boy was born at 5 AM on Wednesday, the 4th. He was 36 weeks; about a month early according to our due date, but he is still a nice healthy boy at 6 lbs 8 ozs! I'll give the quick and dirty details: Just a little before 2 AM my water broke while I was sleeping. My contractions were about 4 or 5 minutes apart at that time. We were at the hospital by 2:30, where they determined that I was dilated to 4cm. They checked Sage's position with an ultrasound and he was breech. By 3:30 they had determined that I would be having a C-section. I was in the OR by 4:30, they scrubbed me up, gave me the epidural, and brought Tom in just before 5 AM. By 5:06 we had our little Sage Cameron! He is the most precious thing. Daddy is in love too, and can't seem to get enough of holding our little honey! Despite being early and having his cleft lip/palate to contend with, Sage has been great at feeding, and we're hoping to go home this weekend.

I'll post some photos when I finally get home!
