Tripp is here!

Tripp was born on May 21, 2009 weighing 7 pounds and 3 ounces. He was 20 inches long. The exact same stats as Kaylen! The delivery was quick and I was able to do it naturally. I was only doubting myself from about 10 am until he arrived at 11:07 am. I literally didn't push at all. I was trying to hold him in because my doctor wasn't there yet but the contraction pushed him out. He slid out onto the bed and the nurses were there to "guide his path". No stirrups or anything! I must say that I am glad to be on this side of things and we are all healthy and doing great. Kaylen has been a great big sister already. She loves to hold him and she keeps saying, "wake up, little buddy". I put together a few pictures for everyone. The first one is the night before.

Kaylen and her new baby brother!!

Look at his big feet!!

Mommy and Tripp

Me and Allen seeing him for the first time.

Emily and Hollie were there for me so much! I have great friends. Hollie took pictures for me during the birth and if it weren't for her giving me a play by play of what was happening on the contraction machine, I wouldn't have made it!

Me and my sweet babies. There isn't a better moment in life so far as the one where my two met for the first time. It is so wonderful to have children. I am honored to be their mom.

Aunt Nikki visiting with Tripp.

I am sure there will be many more pictures to come!
