Introducing...

COLE MICHAEL CALDERWOOD! He was born yesterday morning at 11:24am. He weighed 7lbs. 11oz. and is 19inches long. I called the hospital at 6:00 yesterday morning and was told to be at St. Marks by 7:30am. It had been snowing and traffic was slow going down Parleys Canyon, so we arrived a little late, but were put right into our room. I got all hooked up to my IV, received some pitocin and my epidural before any pain kicked in. My doctor came, broke my water and about 40 minutes later I pushed once and little Cole joined our world! I am pretty lucky that my deliveries are extremely easy. I didn't have to have an episiotomy and received just one stitch. He is so dang cute and even has some red in his hair!
Cody's parents took Tucker and Aubrey Sunday night so we wouldn't have to worry about dropping them off Monday morning. They brought them by the hospital last night and it was so fun to see their reactions to "baby brother". Tucker knew that it was baby Cole and was so excited to show others that came to visit his new brother.
Aubrey was sooo excited to see the baby and kept trying to grab him and hold him.
Aubrey doesn't realize that Cole is an actual baby. She thinks he's a doll that she calls "my baby!"
So, there you have it! We are now a family of 5!
We checked out of the hospital this morning and Cody, Cole and I have been resting at home. The grandparents are keeping Tucker and Aubrey until Thursday when my Mom will bring them up and come stay for awhile.
Thank you to all of our family members that came by to see us in the hospital and at home. It was nice to be here in Utah where relatives are actually around. My Dad and Cody's parents hadn't seen any of our babies until their blessing weekends, so it was fun to share the "newborn" experience with them.
We are all doing well and are excited to have Cole in our family. Feel free to give us a call or drop by for a visit if you are in the area!
