Welcome to the world Tyler Henry!

Our sweet baby boy arrived on schedule and as "planned" on July 26th at 7:38 am weighing 6 lbs 6 oz and 19 inches long. 
I was scheduled for a c-section with Tyler and kept saying throughout this pregnancy that I wanted to make it the entire length since Matthew arrived early.  Let's just say I was eating my words by 37 weeks.  Boy those last few weeks are killer! 
As Jason would describe it, Tyler's birth was "like going to a dentist appointment"...  His statement definitely cracked me up, but it was different waking up that Thursday morning and walking into the hospital for a planned delivery.  We arrived at Northside at 5:15 am and I was scheduled for surgery at 7:15 am.  I could not understand why we had to be there 2 hours prior, but once we arrived I understood.  I completely forgot all that had to be done prior the delivery. 

I had Jason take one last picture before I slipped into the hospital gown.  
39 weeks and ready to meet our newest addition!
We got prepped and right on time, I was rolled into the OR at 7:15 am and by 7:38 am, I was hearing the cries of our newest boy, Tyler Henry.  Tears immediately started rolling down my face when I heard his sweet cry.

Welcome to the world Tyler Henry!

We are officially a family of 4!

A head full of hair and such a sweet little nose!
I really worried how Matthew would react once Tyler arrived, but Matthew is such a good big brother.  From the time he met Tyler he's been so sweet to his baby brother and loves to touch his hair and give him kisses.  It is so sweet to watch!
Matthew meeting his baby brother for the first time!

Tyler is now 3 weeks old, which I can't believe, and we are enjoying every second of being a family of 4!
