Introducing Jack Murphy Wescott......

Our son, Jack Murphy Wescott, arrived Friday, March 4th at 9:24 am! Weighing 7 lbs, 12 ozs and he is 20 inches long. Pete and I were home watching ironically watching the movie Due Date, when he noticed that I was commenting on my contractions more. We started timing them and realized they were now 5 minutes apart. I called the doctor and we got to the hospital on Thursday night around 11. As soon as we got to the hospital they were about three minutes apart and intense... holy crap I had forgotten how crazy they get! Around 2am I decided to try the epidural, ahh what a relief. I didn't have one last time and what a difference it made! Finally around 8 am I started really feeling pressure with the contractions and at 9:09 started pushing. Jack arrived 14 minutes later!! Pete and I couldn't believe how much he looked like Peter when he was a baby. Big brother Peter arrived shortly after to meet his new brother but he really wanted nothing to do with him, he wanted Mommy time:) When he returned in the afternoon he was more interested in Jack and gave him a kiss goodbye when he left. Pete and I are overjoyed and very blessed with our family of four!
