He's here...

...and has stolen my heart!

Erik Phillip made his way into the world at 10:01 p.m. Sat. night, weighing in at 8lbs 7oz. and 21" long. Jamie called me earlier in the day thinking she was leaking. She went to L&D and they confirmed she had ruptured and admitted her. When I got on the 5:30 flight to Oakland, Jamie was given Petocin & was 5cm dilated. After a 40 minute flight, Brian's mom & dad were waiting for me at the airport as Jamie was already 9 cm's. Thankfully it was only a 10 minute ride to the hospital. We got visit with her for about 20 minutes before she hit 10 cms. and was ready to push. 2 hours later the most adorable angel entered our lives. She did amazing and Brian was so sweet to say she made it look it easy.

It is positively euphoric watching your daughter become a mother. And remember when you held your baby for the first time? This feeling is just like that only 10x more wonderful...and without the pain, exhaustion and the endless sleepless nights! 

I felt as though my heart would burst when I held Erik for the first time.

He's positively delicious! 

I'm completely smitten!
