We have a son named Judah!

Judah Thomas Sundstrom

Born September 4th, 2008 at 9:52am

8lbs 2oz

20.25 inches

Kate went into labor on Thursday waking her up at about 3:30am. After a couple of hot showers we decided it was time to make somephone calls. We made it to the hospital at 6:30am (with a few pit stops for contractions in the parking lot and lobby), she was at 8cm.

After a long time pushing and Judah finally turning around the right way, she delivered our little guy (who remaned nameless for the first few hours).

Kate is deservingly proud of the fact that the delivery was unmedicated (especially since Judah has my huge head at 14.5" he is over an inch above average, ouch.)

A few thanks to our midwife Patti, Ami (labor nurse), Stephenie for her amazing support during the delivery, Jill, and Jackie.

We cut out of the hospital about 24 hours later and brought Judah home. Ronald (our dog) is still excited 2 days later.

Tomorrow is our first pediatrician appointment.

Hope you enjoy the pictures. I'm sure there will be many more to come.
