He's Here!

Buchanan Thomas Jackson
Born: April 28, 2009 at 5:50 pm
Weight: 8 lbs. 15 oz.
Length: 20.5 in.

We are pleased to announce that Canon has finally arrived! I went in Tuesday morning for a scheduled induction. I was already having regular contractions when I got there, but they were not getting the job done. The pitocin was started around 11:00 am, moments later things really got rockin'. At 1:15 pm, they broke my water. About an hour later, I got my epidural. Let's just say that it was only partially effective. :) Quite a strange experience. By 5:00 pm, I was complete and was pushing by 5:20. Thirty exhausting minutes later, Canon made his entrance into the world. It was a beautiful moment.
Our first week has been wonderful and full and sleep deprived! Canon is a very healthy boy! Tuesday, he was up to 9 lbs. 3 oz. Cody is doing well, all things considered. He is trying to be very helpful and for the most part is very understanding of my new responsibilities and his lack of "mommy time."
So without further adieu, here is our new addition!!!!


We got pictures done today. This is my favorite!
