Well, as you can see, little Jude finally came!!! Although he was only 3 days past my due date, it felt like he was never going to join us. He was born April 3 at 10:49am. He weighed 8 pounds 8 ounces and was 21 inches long. The labor was wonderful and amazingly fast. My water broke around 2:30 in the morning and the contractions weren't too painful until I was given some pitocin, then they really kicked in. Luckily my epidural worked because I progressed from 3cm dialated to 10cm in about 2 hours!

Since coming home, we have just enjoyed being a family of four and all of the challenges that it brings (particularly the lack of sleep). Our little Jude Taylor is growing quickly and already weighs 9 pounds 6 ounces!! Leila is adjusting well and although she has been a great helper, I still won't leave her alone with him while I shower or sleep! We look forward to the adventures ahead of us and thanks to everyone who has been helping us make the transition!

Jude looks like a total cutie. I hope my labor goes that fast. Crazy.
