It's a BOY!

Sawyer Elias James was born May 29th 2008, He weighed 8 lbs. 9 oz. Yes hes a big boy : ) My due date was May 17th, but baby Sawyer had other plans he was born @ almost 42 weeks, just like his sister. They must really like it in there. I thought for sure I would have him before my due date because I was having Braxton Hicks like crazy since the beginning of April. Needless to say I was very uncomfortable along with my midwifes I decided to take some castor oil last Thursday I took it at 9am by 11 I was feeling the effects and by 3 was in full blown labor, when Nina my midwife arrived at 330 I was 6cm I consider myself a pro now and knew what to do until she got there. I sat on the ball, swung on the clothe hanger, after she gave me the OK I got into our pool luckily it was a perfect day 79 degrees outside and partly sunny. We wanted Lyla to be a part of it all so she got into the pool with her daddy. I kneeled against our stairs and floated around until 7:12 pm after about 10 pushes out he came. It was such an amazing moment I am head over heels for this little man. Lyla is in love too, Carter likes him but really doest even seem to notice hes around. He is a great feeder. Started eating about 15 minutes after coming out. Everything has went so well the past few days and I am just very content.
