He’s Here!

We’ve got a happy and healthy baby boy!

Becky’s water broke at 5:36am yesterday, so we headed to the hospital, but she wasn’t having any contractions once we got there.  At 11:30am they decided to induce.  We didn’t start pushing until about 10:00 pm and just after midnight the doctors decided a C-Section would be best for the baby.  Everything went smoothly from there.  It was incredible to hear those first reassuring cries and we both fell in love when we got to meet him for the first time.  Mom and baby had quite an ordeal, but they both did great and are pretty tuckered out.

Born at 12:40am,  7 lbs 12 ounces and 20 in long.

The name and pictures to come shortly.

    Congratulations! So sorry that the birthing process had some bumpy parts but the desired outcome was achieved… a healthy boy. You are both so organized that I am not at all surprised that he was born on his exact due date. A precision landing! As I write, Julia is winging her way down to San Diego. smart godmother planned her business trip just right!

    Can’t wait to me him in person. Love to all three of you

    I am SO happy everything went well. It must have been QUITE the long day for all three of you, but Becky and little jumping bean are healthy, and that’s all that matters in the end. I am so excited for you both, and I hope everyone is getting some much needed rest before taking baby Hill home. I love you guys, keep me posted on when I can come see everyone. <3

    Congratulations! Now rest as much as you can Becky (sure helps with the healing)! I can only imagine how helpful Erik is going to be, and I’m sure he’d strap on a ‘Meet the Fockers’ mammary mechanism if he could! Bringing the baby to her in bed for feedings so she doesn’t have to get up will suffice =) Enjoy this precious time, it goes by way too fast!
    Hello to Kristy and your parents too, if they happen to read this!
    Best, Sam
