We had a boy! We named him Jaden. The labor wasn’t as bad as with Deborah. But they told me that the first one was always the hardest. We are taking him home today.
So there is a hilarious story behind Jaden’s birth. We were celebrating my dad’s birthday and we had just got done singing him happy birthday and watching him age up.
I had been feeling Jaden move a lot and asked Goodwin if he wanted to feel my belly for a kick.
As soon as Goodwin touched my belly I had to most intense pain! It was as if Jaden was trying to leap into his daddy’s arms from my womb. I knew immediately that I was going into labor.
So we rushed to the hospital and that’s the full circle. I will never let Goodwin live that down. I told him that he jump started my labor by encouraging Jaden to come out and play.
Also, while I was sleeping after they took Jaden to the nursery, My dad called and said that he had a surprise for us when we get home. I wonder what it is??? I guess it’s time to pack up the car and take our little bundle home and find out.
