Mr. Brooks Warren Byrd is here!!

Brooks Warren was born on August 14 at 2:58am. He weighed in at 6lbs 6oz and was 20.5 inches long. Just like with Mallory, Jennifer had Brooks all natural with no epidural. She was such a trooper. She labored most of the time at home on Thursday but from about midnight to 1:30am, the contractions got a lot worse. We decided to call my parents so they could stay with Mallory until she woke up (it takes 15-20 min. to get from their house to ours but my Dad made it in about 5-10 min. So we finally went to the hospital to find out she was 9 cm. The nurse got real anxious and immediately called for the doctor. Shortly after that, Brooks arrived with no complications. We cut it pretty close this time but it was nice for Jennifer not being in the delivery bed very long.

Mallory is adjusting to having Brooks around. At first, she definitely sensed something was different and that he was here to stay. She likes to hug and kiss him but also likes to crawl up in Jennifer's lap when she is nursing Brooks. You quickly forget how small they are at birth because Mallory looks like a giant next to him.

Here are some pictures of everyone.
