Knox Thomas Hodges arrived last Sat October 24th at 11:14 pm after a VERY LONG labor. I developed high blood pressure so Mandy decided it was best for me and baby to go ahead and deliver. I got induced on Fri at 10 pm and Knox arrived Sat at 11:14 pm. Since my epidural wore off and he was pretty much a "natural" delivery....let's just say labor was not quite what I expected!! I was pretty much convinced he would be our only child but have since re-considered. He was quite a surprise for mom and dad since we weren't expecting him for another 4 weeks. We got to leave the hospital on Tues and the first week has been quite the adjustment and I never knew I could be this tired but we are so in love! Here are some pics of Knox's first week. Naturally, my camera battery ran out last week and I lost my charger so I was headed to get one this weekend but Knox had other plans...that's why we don't have a ton of great pics. We are so glad Aunt Heather had her camera and dad used his phone to take lots of pics. I promise to get more stuff on here after I get a little rest! Mom spent the first two nights with us and then had to leave town for Caroline's birth so Sharon and Heather came from Thurs to Sun and Knox, Slade and I are sooooo thankful for all their help. Steve-O, Cody and Christy showed up to visit again on Sat. so Knox has had a busy first week! Knox is a good little baby and Slade and I just stare at him and can't believe we are so blessed....he is perfect!!
The family played scrabble to pass the time since labor was taking sooooooo long!
Mom and I were worn out after my arrival!
I really like to stretch since I was soo squished in mom's belly!
The first week has been a little crazy and we are worn out!
