Blair's Early Arrival

At 6:20am on Thursday, October 9, my water broke. I wasn't sure at first, but it didn't take long to realize what had happened -- it was quite an experience! We got to the Coliseum around 8:30, and I stepped out of the car and immediately created a huge puddle at my feet! Brad went in to tell them I was there: "My wife's water broke, and she's outside in a puddle." So he laughed at the wet footprints into the hospital, in the admissions office, and all the way to labor and delivery.
After a short and pretty easy labor, Blair arrived at 2:05pm! For being five weeks early, she's a good size: 6 lbs 2 oz. She is 18 inches long and has a good bit of fuzzy brown hair that sticks up all over her head!
