Walker Jon

I can't believe how in love I am with this little boy already!  I of course knew I would love my newest son but am blown away by our immediate connection.  Sweet Walker Jon was born on March 3rd... the day I secretly wanted my whole pregnancy.  Lincoln's birthday is 12-12 and I thought it would be fun if our 2nd born's birthday was 3-3.

I had an appointment with our midwife on Monday morning and was dilated to 7-8 cm.  I had been having contractions for awhile, but they were so on and off and never got intense.   No one was surprised because I dilated like this with Lincoln.  In fact, the week before I was at a 4-5 and my midwife told me if I was still pregnant the following week at my appointment I should plan on having my bag packed because they would likely send me over to the hospital.  We knew it wasn't a sure thing, but gave us a heads up so we could be prepared.  Travis took the day off work and we had plans already lined up for Lincoln.



Once my water was broke, things went fast and got intense quickly.  We took one lap around the hospital floor and I had to sit down followed by laying on my side in the bed.  I was able to lay there and breathe through the contractions for maybe 30 minutes until I hit transition.  Before I knew it I had the urge to push.  I was a little alarmed and confused because I thought it was way too early.  But 7 minutes later, Walker Jon was born.  A 1 1/2 hour labor isn't bad!  I feel so fortunate that my mom has been at the births of both my sons and we have wonderful images to remember the day.


 






 







Today is my due date!  I'm so glad we are celebrating it with our newest little man.  He fits into our family so well and Lincoln is an amazing big brother!  I am so thankful for a safe and smooth delivery and our healthy boy.
