Surprise, he came 12 days early!

We are pleased to announce the arrival of our new baby boy! I had my first contraction at 4am, woke Todd up at 5am, checked into the hospital at 6:40am not knowing I was already 10cm dialated. The nurse scooted us swiftly from triage to the delivery room where we found out the baby was coming and drugs were not an option. A few pushes later, Baby Boy Cooper came into this world at 7:13am, weighing 7lbs 3oz and 20.75 inches. As you can see he has a full head of dark brown /black hair. Everson couldn't stop kissing his new brother when he came to visit and seemed very happy to see him. Hopefully he will be just as happy when we bring baby brother home tomorrow! (A name is yet to be decided)

Congratulations! He is so precious. That is a crazy fast labor! My last labor was 6 hours and whenever I tell my husband about women with labors shorter than that, he starts freaking out :) He's afraid of having to deliver at home.

I am so glad I got to come up and see him. It was fun discussing baby names. I hope you decide on one soon. I think the name you have picked out is perfect. Go with what you like. I can't wait to see him and cuddle him again. He is so sweet and precious. Fun little bundle of joy that loves to cuddle. He is Beautiful and hope he stays good and content. Love you and bless your little family.

I promise I haven't been blog-stalking you - I just found your blog through Emily's. Congratulations!! What a cutie.

By the way, thank you so much for lending us that awesome carseat back in November. That was so nice of you and I really appreciated it. I hope it's getting used again by your new little one now.

Todd WAS telling the truth!! How exciting! Congrats Congrats! Jen - you do know that your next child will be born at home, right? That is what Bill and I are planning on with this one...

One little man looks like his dad, the other little man looks like his mom. How fun!! I wish I was there to hold and kiss him!

Yea!!! He is so beautiful!! I'm so happy for you (and jealous - we're waiting a little longer . . .)!! I love boys . . . and girls . . . I have to, I have one of each!

A little advice, take things slow and don't jump back into everything to fast. Hold your little one as much as possible and give him all the love you've got! We love you!
