Welcome to the world Dylan Jack!!!!
On May 15th at 5:37 pm, we welcomed our gorgeous baby Dylan Jack.
He weighed 8 pounds 7 ounces and was 20.5 inches long.
Labor and delivery was one of the hardest things I've ever experienced but easily the most rewarding. I am still in such awe and shock that a baby this adorable was inside me for 9+ months. And I mean +.
As most of you probably heard from me complaining on twitter, baby Dylan was ten days late. Yes, TEN days. I spent those ten days wishing on painful contractions because I wanted the baby to come sooo bad. (Who wishes pain to come?) If I didn't go into labor on my own, I was going to get induced on Tuesday May 15th, something I really didn't want. I was worried my "natural" plans wouldn't go accordingly (hint, it didn't- just in case you're unaware, its absolutely impossible to plan childbirth, but hey, I tried). I was worried because on Thursday May 9th, six days into my fortieth week, I had a biophysical ultrasound where I was told our baby could be give or take NINE POUNDS, FIVE OUNCES. Which meant either way you look at it, I was going to have a big BABY.
I worried about my labor. I worried about being induced.
And in the end, I went into labor on my own at 8am Monday morning (May 14th).
33 hours later Dylan was born and we couldn't be more in love...

Welcome home Dylan Jack!
Thanks for all the well wishes, we are so happy to have Dylan in our lives : )
