Baby No Name arrived a few days early! I'm going to be really honest and tell you that he did not have a name until about an hour before check out time at the hospital! We were the talk of the maternity floor! We did name him though, with the help of T and lots of little prayers!
Meet M! He weighed in at 8 pounds and 13 ounces. He is 21 inches long and absolutely precious.

I was reading with T last week, getting ready to figure out a few things for my supply teacher when I started having some pain. T was a week late and not interested in joining us even then, so I was induced with him. I remembered this pain I was having though. I remembered it, but it was in an "I was already medicated by the time this started happening" kind of way.
I decided to start timing what I thought were contractions. N was pretending none of this was happening. They were about 10 minutes apart consistently. I called the doctor. She said to come in if they got closer or the pain increased. About an hour later, they were 5-7 minutes apart and I was in tears. N went into superhero mode! We arrived at the hospital around 10:30 and were told we would be having a baby!
It was a whirlwind and our little trooper T was with us the whole time! I was waiting to be moved to surgery and he said, "mommy, I know I'm going to have a lot schoolwork to makeup, but I wouldn't miss this for the world." I love this kid.
We are all doing great and we feel blessed beyond words to have two, happy, healthy little boys. Our little family is complete.
