Madden's Pictures

38 Weeks and 5 days. Right after I got to the hospital and changed into my gown.

They broke my water and then 4 hours later, with a half hour of pushing:

When he came out, the cord was wrapped around his neck twice. They thought they were going to have to put an IV in him and pump him full of fluids to get him to perk up a little more, but after his bath he was doing great.

Check out that thigh muscle!

My awesome OB and family friend, Kari. She delivered my mom's youngest, Dallin. It was really cool to have her deliver my baby as well.

My midwife and OB right after the delivery. They are such awesome ladies, I was so happy to switch to them from my other OB, I will be with them forever now.

Jake, His mom (grandma :)) and Madden

Jake, Jarren, Madden and Uncle Rob. We have decided that Madden looks a lot like Uncle Rob. Especially his profile.

The next morning after delivery, I woke up to this. My mom told me I had my eyes open when I was pushing, I was "pushing with my eyes" as she put it. I was shocked because I thought my eyes were closed, all I saw was black. Apparently I was blacking out as I pushed and popped some blood vessels. They said the blood look should go away after a week or two.

The night Madden was born, Jarren was really sleepy and didn't want anything to do with him. He just wanted to cuddle with mom and dad. Then the next afternoon Grandma brought him by to visit again and he LOVED holding his brother and giving him kisses and looking at him. It was so cute.

He is a very awake baby. I was surprised with him not even being 24 hours after birth.

Jarren being silly and making faces. I love that he loves his brother so much already.
