Mission Accomplished!!!

After several hours of NOTHING really going on all night long, Sarah finally has completed the last thing on her to-do list from yesterday: successful delivery of her bouncing baby boy!!! Thanks to a not-so-motivated nurse she got sorta stuck at a 6 for quite a while. Little guy was being a bit of a stinker and gave us somewhat of a scare for a little while since his heartbeat would drop off the monitor all together with each contraction. But when the big guns were finally called in and Dr. Lewis arrived, that lady worked Sarah's cervix like a freakin' champ!!! She worked her magic all up inside Sarah's business and before we knew it we were hearing the beautiful words, "Let's break down this bed, we're having a baby!" That was such music to our ears (especially Sarah's!) Within 10-15 minutes of Dr. Lewis' arrival we had a baby!!! An d he's oh so yummy adorable, if I do say so myself!!! He finally made his appearance at 7:08am, and weighs 6 lbs. 6 oz. and measures 19.5 inches long. And his name is...............BRIGGS LAVELL BARLOW!!! For now we be gettin' Briggy wit the adorable little sweet pea!!! And this is Erin signing off, headed home for some zzzzzzz's! But first, here's a picture of the little peanut (the consensus is he most resembles Brevin, but he's got a little bit of Kenzie in him too, I think!):

Heard the news and had to check your blog. Thanks Erin for posting for Sarah. Congratulations!

Yay! Congratulations on having another boy! Hopefully Briggs won't be as crazy as the other two boys! And, by the way, Erin writes in the same exciting way in which you would! I guess that's what happens when you're close sisters!

Congratulations Sarah and Tyler and kids. We are so excited for you and the family. I deleted my earlier comment cause it looks like I got his birthday wrong. It's the 27th right? Congrats! Looks like a lemonade stand is the way to induce labor. Who knew?

You've taken multi-tasking to a new level. I was just checking blogs at mom and dad's and there was Erin's post. I have to say, it was fun to be the one to go out in the family room and make the announcement. Congratulations to all of you!!

Tausha said...

oh-you should have many, many children because of your labor. How jealous I am. He is a handsome little thing! Congrats on the baby and also the Lemonaide stand-you rock girl! I am sure that your family is so grateful for you and your love for everyone in the family! I read up on Garret and he is lucky to have a aunt like you! Hug and kiss that baby from a bloggy buddy in Utah! Take a nap-you deserve it!
