On September 26th we were scheduled for an induction at 5 am in the morning due to the previous ultrasound studies showing that my little guy ain't so little. At 37 weeks he was showing to be almost 8 lbs in utero! As he was larger than gestational age and because of my history of bladder trauma with my first born child, the doctor thought it best to have a scheduled induction at 38 weeks.
The day came and my little one was not having it, he decided to come out on his own three hours before my scheduled procedure. We rushed to the emergency room at 2 am in the morning and found out I was already 6 cm dilated.
Here's some pictures to document another one of the happiest moments of our life.
Here I am after the epidural was given to me, I don't think I would have been able to manage without it, let alone smile for the camera.

|I was probably really hungry or I'm just one of a few people who does not mind hospital food|
|Yay, we are going home!|
At home, our great friend Nelly came by the house to meet Jacks.

I have so many questions and I count myself so lucky to be in this place where I know my worries will pass with each moment that I get to spend with this angel in our life.
And what mother's heart would not melt when you see this stunning vision of your children?
