Porter Scott Lander
On Friday September 18th my little boy was born. I was on call to be induced that day and had to wait until they called to tell me to come in. Let me say... that was torture! Finally the call came and I headed over to hospital at 2pm. They hooked me up to my IV and all that fun stuff and started the pitocin a little before 3pm. I survived the contractions for quite a while but finally gave in and asked for an epidural. What a relief! How did people ever survive having babies naturally? Anyway, I got the epidural around 5:30pm or so. The nurse came in to check me at 6:15pm and said it was time to get ready. She got the room all ready, the doctor came in and turned the baby (he was facing the wrong way), and then they told me to push. I pushed a couple times during one contraction and he was here just before 6:30pm. My mom and I were, of course, in awe at the whole thing and then Toby at my side says "ugh". Ha ha, typical Toby response. Porter was 7lbs even and 19 inches long. What a difference from Zeke... do you have any idea how big Zeke is now? Now for a bunch of pictures.
Right after the baby was born.
We told Zeke to smile and this is what we got.
Toby thought it would be funny to put the baby's clothes on Zeke.
