El Nino esta aqui

Bree woke up at 4:30am having contractions. We left for the hospital at 7:00am and she was checked in and being examined at 7:30. She was already dilated to 7cm at that point. No one, including ourselves, could believe it. She quickly dilated to 10cm and began pushing. Her water broke during her first set of pushing. The Dr. was there very quickly, and after a few rounds of pushing it became apparent the baby was breach. Bree was rushed to the OR to continue delivering vaginally, but there was a whole team on standby in case she needed a C-section. She was able to finish delivering vaginally, though needed stitches. She made it through like a champ, and all without any pain killers. Logan Avery Shipman was born at 10:17am on Dec 10th, 2007. He weighed in at 8lbs and 6oz. World beware!

A babe in the house is a well-spring of pleasure, a messenger of peace and love, a resting place for innocence on earth, a link between angels and men.
