my new nephew!

after 9 hours of labor without the use of any pain reliever, my sister-in-law gave birth to my beautiful nephew, harrison tyler.

i have to say, i really respect her right now because i don’t think i could have done that without an epidural. we got the call from ryan around 12:30 a.m., after having been asleep for only 2 hours, and headed out from joe’s parents’ cabin, which is about 2.5 hours from the hospital. we stopped in and said hi to ryan and ori, and then went to the family waiting room, where we were with my family and oriona’s dad until 9 a.m. when harrison was finally born. i’m really glad it happened then, because we had to leave at 9:30 a.m. because i had to work today.

it sucks that when we next see him he will be several weeks old! i haven’t even gotten to hold him yet. šŸ™

    Aww…he’s very cute, Cady! Congrats to your brother and sis-in-law!!

    Maybe I should talk to your sil if I ever get pregnant again. After my epidural not working properly last time, odds are they won’t suggest it again. So….I will be looking for pain management techniques from the moment of conception next time!! Maybe she has some tips!!

    Congratulations, Aunt Cady! šŸ™‚ Harrison is a wonderful name. Nine hours ~ that seems pretty short for a first baby! It’s awesome that she did it without any pain medication, too. Wow, you must be exhausted! Does she feel relieved not to be pregnant anymore? Enjoy your new nephew!
