No More Waiting!!

Well, it was only a few more hours of waiting! Ha ha! I started having consistent contractions at 5 pm ish so Jason and I talked and waited an hour and suddenly contractions were already 3 minutes apart. So we headed straight to the hospital.

And at 8:52 pm Lucas Burton Ralls was born, after less than hours of real labor. Crazy!!! He weighs 8 lbs 13 oz (just like mama at birth) and is 21 in long. He came FAST and is such a peaceful boy!

We were super surprised to find out we have another son, but it's been so fun already watching this little guy and learning about his mild personality. We can't wait to know more. We are all completely smitten. He's just the sweetest little guy.

I'm typing here now and he's sleeping on my chest, just peaceful as can be. I am teary eyed thinking about how much I love him. Already. I just can't believe he's here and he's ours.

Soon enough I will post pictures and hopefully some fun pictures. But for now I'm going to snuggle my new son and try to get some rest.
