New Baby Liam!

Will thought he was going to get a good nights sleep Tuesday night, but boy was he wrong, unless you count an hour of sleep good. Anna gasped at about 5 minutes to midnight and said, "I think my water broke." And her water had indeed broken. So the proud parents went to the hospital with no sleep for 9 hours of labor.
Anna was a champ and didn't get an epidural with this baby. That isn't to say she didn't want one (at one point). To help move the delivery along they gave Anna some pitocin since she wasn't progressing very fast. After about an hour and a half she started having the worst contractions and screamed for help. The nurse went to get the anesthesiologist so she could get an epidural and he was going into surgery and wouldn't be available for an hour and a half. So the nurses gave Anna something else for the pain and Liam decided he wanted to show his head. That scared one nurse pretty bad. She left the room to call the doctor and sent in a replacement. The new nurse, Chris, got Anna a little more ready to deliver and held in Liam until the doctor got in the room to watch him be delivered by the nurse. He is a good eater, sleeper, and wiggler. He is 7lbs 7oz and 20 inches born on July 14th, 2010 at 8:47am.
Anna in the hospital before she got hooked up to all the stuff. Another lady decided to wait until she was dilated to a 10 before coming to the hospital so it took a little bit to get Anna all squared away.
