He's Here!

Our newest addition to our family is finally here! Rylan Grady was born July 7. He weighed in at 8lb 8oz and was 21 inches long. Meaghan and Kaiden are doing very well adapting. Kaiden wants to kiss him all the time and Meaghan mothers him constantly.

One week before he was born, we had an ultrasound because they thought he seemed too big. By ultrasound, he weighed in between 9 and 10 lbs. We talked about it and decided at my doctor's recommendation to have a c-section. He recommended that to avoid trauma to his shoulders since he was "so big!" On the bright side, at least I would know when the delivery would be! I guess Rylan had different ideas. I went into labor before we even scheduled the c-section. So I had a last minute c-section for not that big of a baby!! It was for the best though because the umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck and his shoulders.
