Welcome Dylan James!

C-section was scheduled for April 15th, at noon (39 weeks). All childcare was arranged and we had time to finish laundry, etc. I still had 2 weeks. Imagine our surprise when Wednesday evening my water breaks. Mike was in Baltimore and it was too late for him to fly out that night. I found someone to come sit with the sleeping children and someone else to take me to the women's center. I was admitted and kept overnight then re-scheduled for a C-section the next morning. April fools day. Dylan arrived at 10:32am, April 1st weighing 8lb 5oz and 19 3/4" long. Thankfully dad made it home just in time! Everything went well and we were able to come home on Saturday.
