Last belly picture, before Ryan's big arrival! 5:30AM is way too early for pictures! After 3 needle sticks and a blown vein, the IV is in, and we are ready for surgery! Mike had to put on scrubs... Once we were in the operating room, they got started right away! I think total time to put in the epidural and catheter was less than 10 minutes! Ryan was delivered via Cesarean Section at 7:45AM. The nurses quickly whisked Ryan off to the warmer, and cleaned him up. They then called Mike over to cut the cord! Ryan weighed in at 7 pounds 8 ounces. (Not the whopper that we predicted.) His brother Mikey weighed 9 pounds at birth. Finally in our own room, Mommy and Ryan pose for our first picture! Mikey meets Ryan for the first time. He wasn't sure what to think about his new little brother! Mikey is much happier with Daddy! Thank you Dr. John Anstey! Ryan and I had great care at Missouri Baptist Hospital!
