Daddy thought the pink/blue hat was a little too girly so he found one he liked much better.
*The first four pictures are extremely out of order. Pretend they’re at the bottom of the post, if you can.
Nixon, Sarah, Molly, and Dicky…The Smiths came to visit and bring us drinks! Thank you!!

Our fabulous neighbors and great friends…the McCollums. Amber waited it out in the waiting room earlier in the day, but she brought Justin back that night. We encourage them almost everyday to have a baby…so hopefully Mr. Nixon will help a little with persuading them.

Mamas and their boys! The Shulls came by to visit. Shay and Smith posing with me & Nixon.

Tab and I checking in at the hospital at 7:30 in the morning…almost one year after checking in with Ebby Lee (I know a lot of my friends are thinking it…so I just threw it out there…ha!).

Everything seemed to go much faster this time. By the time we got to our room and got settled in it was about 8:00. They checked me and I was a 4-5. They started my induction medicine by 8:30. When Dr. Riegel got there around 9:15, he broke my water and I was getting my epidural about 30 minutes later. At 11:30, our room was full of family and friends. My nurse had them leave to check me and I was extremely ready! So, we started pushing a few minutes later and he was here at 12:10!

Our family of four

Tab, Nanny, and Nixon…3 generations

M and Nixon

G, Nixon, and Tab…3 generations

Me, Nixon, and T-Nonna…3 generations

Nanny and Ebby Lee
Ebby Lee was such a trooper. She hung out keeping everyone entertained. I think it was so weird to her that the baby was real!!
Erin and Nixon…Erin stopped by on her way home from running a half-marathon the day before. Way to go, Erin!

T-Nonna, Boo, and Nixon

We are so blessed with great family and great friends. Thanks to all who were thinking about us and praying for us. Nixon’s arrival went so smoothly. We’re so excited to have him here!
