Connor Graham Halbert arrived on Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011 at 4:09am. He weighed 7 pounds 6 ounces and was 20 inches long. He happened to be 16 days early so it was a little unexpected, but hey I won't complain. It was around 11:30 pm Monday night when I started to have contractions. They were only 7 minutes apart and not unbearable, so I just tried to ignore them. By the time 12:30 hit they were 2 minutes apart and very unbearable. So I got Jared up and we arrived to the hospital around 1 am. Everything happened pretty quick, except for the last 30 minutes felt like forever. My nurse decided to call the doctor when I was dilated to a 10 and Connor's head was almost out. Did I mention she had to call him at home. He lived 15 minutes away! Oh and did I also mention that he showed up about 25 minutes later because he couldn't find his car keys. I had to lay there for that long squeezing my legs together to try to keep Connor from coming out. As soon as the doctor got there everything went well though. It was 4 pushes and he was out. Over all everything went really good and smooth for me, I feel pretty lucky. We are extremely happy to have Connor in our lives. We now have two precious boys and feel very lucky and blessed. Pictures are to come.
