Baby Nolan was born in the evening of Jan. 7th. I'll try and give a condensed version of the story so I can get on with the cute pictures. I started having contractions in the afternoon, Taylor came home from work, we took Carson to one of my visiting teachers and went to the hospital. I was at a 6.5 when they finally checked me. I ended up choosing to go without any pain medication which made for a much different experience than I had with Carson. I wasn't really in a lot of pain until a few hours later, but he was born pretty soon after it became unbearable so we all survived with minimal drama. Even though he weighed in at 8 lbs. 3 oz., I remember thinking he was really tiny. And he still pretty much is- at his one month check up he'd gained about 2 lbs. and grown about 3 inches. Anyway, here are some pictures:
Carson loved his soft hair.
I just love this picture.
Ok, I love all these pictures.
We do this a lot. Sleeping baby in one hand, book in the other.
