The final weeks of our "walk"...

My dad arrived around week 38, and we were all hoping that baby would make an early arrival. But the days passed and nothing happened. Around week 39 we had a huge snow storm and our prayers changed to not going into labor early, since they were advising everyone to stay off the roads. Frankly, I wasn't worried that we wouldn't be able to make it to the hospital, I was more worried that maybe the epidural guy wouldn't be able to get there in time (or at all.) But not to worry, those prayers were answered and baby still did not come. Here is my Week 39 picture:

It wasn't a week that I was planning to take a photo, but I wanted to document the snow.

Kenton's Newborn Pictures - 7 days old

Welcome to the family!

Kenton Robert Bachelder was born on February 15th, 2014 at 2:29pm. He weighed 9lbs and 12 oz and was 2 days early. He measured 22" long. No wonder Mommy was so uncomfortable while he was on the inside. He's a big boy! We all fell instantly in love with him and have been so busy enjoying him that I'm just now getting around to blogging.

And here's the video we posted while we were in the hospital to announce that we had a BOY!
