He's Here!

Jarom Hyrum Brown was born Monday November 19th at 1:39 PM, weighing in at 7 lbs 2 oz, 20 inches long. He looks a lot like Kaden to us but has a very different personality. We are so in love with him and adjusting to life as a family of 4. Here are some pictures of the cutie and the longer story is below.
(By Jimmy) Amy checked in at 7am, and right away the morning started off a little fun! They couldn't find her vein for the I.V. and she got pretty sick while they poked at her :) After two hours they got it going and things went much smoother from there! Her contractions and dilation progressed very fast, they actually tried slowing it down for awhile because the baby's heart rate started to dramatically dip during contraction. They theorized that the cord was somehow impeded so they repositioned Amy and did an Amniotic infusion. That did the trick, baby's heart rate stabilized for the rest of the delivery, though he was still sunny side up! However right about when Amy got to a 10 and the contractions where on top of each other he decided he wanted to come out in a much more comfortable position so he turned himself around! 30 minutes later the doc came in, and after only 7 minutes of pushing cute little Jarom Hyrum Brown announced himself at 1:39 pm with with a strong set of vocal cords and a thick black mop of hair! He's 7 pounds and 2 ounces, and 20 inches long, healthy little baby. We are so excited to actually have him in our room this time around, and not whisked away to the NICU like Kaden was! He's a happy and often quiet little guy, he's looks a lot like Kaden, with some distinct differences in individual features. We are very happy to have this new little one in our home and happy the delivery went so smoothly. Amy is feeling well, and spending as much time as possible cuddling with little jer-bee (that's Kaden's nickname for him). -Jim, Amy, Kaden, and Jarom

Congratulations!!! I have been thinking about you and wondered if you had your new little one here now. :) I'm so glad everything went so smoothly (as smoothly as labor can go, right?) and that he is here safely and you are doing well also. He is SUCH a cute baby! But I'm not surprised looking at mr. kaden. :)
I hope you guys have a very relaxed and fun holiday season!

PS Spencer was almost those EXACT same stats - he was 7.2 1/2 and 20 1/2 inches long. Brings back great memories!
