Cullen Cole is here!!

Here's my/his story...
Monday, April 24th, at 4:30 I had just gotten home from the Dr where I was scheduled to be induced on Friday, tomorrow. My mom watched the kids while I was gone and after she left I started having contractions, very sporadic. I saw my neighbor walking by and ended up talking to her for a while and the girls played with her kids. My girls ended up at their house and my neighbor went home. Called my MIL since she's a nurse and also called the dr. I didn't think I was going into labor, but doc said to go in anyway and get checked. My contractions were getting stronger and the stronger they got the more I knew I was going to have the baby! So, I started getting ready and patiently waited for the hubby to come home(I did call him). The girls came home at a little after 7. I didn't feed them supper and their settle down time 7:30. Caytlynn had a scrape on her foot, so I was trying to get something for them to eat, since the little one was pratically screaming for food, clean Caytlynn's foot and finish packing while having these REALLY strong contractions!! I called the neighbor girl over to watch my girls since I couldn't get a hold of my mom - SHE TURNED OFF HER PHONE!!!! Corey made it home and we were off to the hospital at 8:00. By then I was having contractions every 2 minutes! I didn't want to say anything to Corey, but I was so afraid that I was going to give birth in the car! We did make it there w/o having the baby :) I was wheeled into l&d and was asked "how are you?" me:"every 2 minutes, not so good!". That was 8:30. They set me up, got my epaduril(sp?) :) :) :) :) and at about 10pm, my OB came in and said we can have this baby now if you want to start pushing - EEEK! I did not expect this so soon! Dr got prepped and I pushed through 2 of my contractions and he flew out of me. Doc said he had to check him for wings :) 8lbs 4 oz 21 inches long, Cullen Cole was born at 10:21pm. His face bruised because he came out so fast! Besides that, everything was perfect! He's healthy and I feel great! We're at home now and it's oddly quiet since the girls are at g-ma's! Here's Cullen:














And here's the chaos of everyone(Cassidy was trying to kiss me with her mouth open!), I have a feeling that this is what life will be like for the next few years!

And here's Cullen hangin' out in his swing :) I'll post more photos later - surprise, surprise!
