Our sweet baby boy

Well here goes the story of Ridge! On March 5 i woke up and was not feeling very well but it was Rileys birthday and my grandmas so i really was hoping that i would go into labor! So i told Brady around 11 that i wanted to go get checked.Off we went when we got there i was dilated to a 2.5 and 80% effaced. They made us walk around the hospital for an hour which was so fun! me and Brady laughed and talked about everything really was a fun memory! They checked me again and i was at a 3.5 and100% effaced!! YEAH. My Dr came in and said i can start you if you want or you can go home and see what happens so of course i was all for them starting me! We got settled into our room and Brady ran home to get all of our stuff. They started pitocin around 1:00 and things were great! I started to feel contracions about 3:00 and they were coming pretty hard. Ridges heart beat keep dropping though out all of this so they had to keep lowering the pitocin very hour or so, Which made me stop dilating from 3 to 6 i had only dilated 3 centimeters not good!!! My Doctor came in around 6 and broke my water which after that things started rolling! I got my epidural around 7:30 and i was dilated to 7. Then i started pushing around 10:30 and  pushed for 2 hours and he was here!!!! It really was the most amazing special moment ever! Brady was so wonderful and so much help. When he came out the placed him on my chest and it was the best moment of my life, just to know he was here and ok and the look on Bradys face was so special. I remember i just held him and cryed and kissed his forehead. I cant explain the love i have for that little boy. I hope i will always remember that moment! He was 6.14 and 20 inches long and his eyes where wide open the minuet he came out! IT has been so fun to see Brady with him he has completely melted his heart and made him such a softy!! Its really fun how it has made our love for each other so much stronger! We had his pictures taken the other day so here is a sneak peak! We love you Ridge!
