IT'S A BOY!!!!???


Guest entry by Michelvis.

Well...the good news is that we have a beautiful healthy baby. The other news is that there was some major confusion when the Dr. declared, "It's A BOY!"

Little Marky Jr. was born at 5:15 pm and weighed in at 7 lbs 7 oz. and 21 3/4 inches. Though everyone was really shocked, we are all happy...

I kid. Britta rocked the labor and delivery process. We were laughing a ton (which help her contractions) and she literally did 5 minutes of hard pushing before Adalie graced us with her sweet little self. It was a very tender moment between Britta and Mark as we heard Adalies first little cries. Okay, so maybe it was my crying they heard but still, it was a wonderful moment that I'm very grateful to have been a part of.

On the DD Side: I'm also really grateful that spray of blood/afterbirth missed me. I was watching a little too closely and nearly got the surprise of my life delivered in a projectile fashion. Britta's doctor, along with everyone else thought this was hilarious.

Congrats to Britta and Marky and your perfect addition!
