Andrew Grant has arrived!

On Wednesday, September 21st at 3:05am, I woke up to a contraction, but it wasn’t the normal ‘wake me up’ contractions I’d been feeling for weeks.  This was different.  I waited a few minutes to see if another came…and it did.  And another.  At a regular 4-5 minute intervals…this could be it!

My sister had stayed the night because Nick had one of his wonky 8pm “teleconference with Japan” meetings and hadn’t gotten home until 1am, so she sat with me and timed my contractions…we decided to wake Nick up around 4am.

We went to the hospital around 7:30am, which wasn’t the best idea, since we ran into rush hour traffic on US-23 South and it took us much longer to get to UM than we had hoped.

I’ll share more of the birth story later, but the long story short is after 21 hours of labor, Andrew Grant arrived before the doctors could come into the room, and my nurse, Sarah, delivered him at 12:37am on Thursday September 22nd.  He weighed 8lbs, 5oz at birth, and was 21″ long.   Here are a couple of photos that I’ve taken of him
