Welcome to the World

Doug and I went in at 6:30 a.m. on Monday to get induced. I got started on Pitocin right away, and had my epidural around 7:30. My OB came in and broke my water a little after 8, where I was only dilated to a 4 for a couple hours. They checked me again at 11, and I was at a 6, and by 11:30, I was at a 10 and ready to push. Two contractions later...
Lincoln Nicholas Nelson
June 1, 2009
11:41 a.m.
7 lbs., 12 oz.
19 inches

Doug was able to give him his first bath. Kevin and Gwen have Jack for us, and dropped by with him last night. He was so excited to see Doug and me, but could care less about Lincoln. We tried to get him to hold the baby, but just wanted off the bed, like he was afraid of him. This will take some getting used to...
Lincoln and I are doing well. He's just sleeping a lot, and I'm trying to rest up and recover quickly. We'll be heading home tomorrow morning, and Jack will join us again on Thursday. Yay, he's here!

Congrats! You and Lincoln look great! Glad he's here and healthy! I'm sure you've probably heard this before, but usually it's the older child and not the baby that you have a hard time with for awhile while they adjust to having someone else to share the attention with. Good luck with that!

I think he looks like little Jack too! By the way, I have LOVED the name Lincoln for years now (actually since PRISON BREAK came out :). It's the only name I can get to Stu to agree on, so I hope you don't mind if we maybe one day use it too!

He is adorable. He seems so peaceful. I hope you are all doing really well! Thanks for posting about and including pics!

I'm so glad to hear that he is here and that things went well! He is sure a handsome little guy. I'm just barely finding out since I don't have the internet yet and am using my parents computer. I've been thinking about ya though! Hope you are recovering quick and I hope Jack is getting used to him. It's a hard change with 2!
