Many of the people we have heard from are amazed about how fast Claire gave birth. So, I have put down a brief timeline of events of Claire’s labor.

9:44 pm - No contractions up until now.
9:45 pm - Claire’s water breaks while brushing her teeth… fyi: A very good place to have that happen vs on the couch or in bed.
10:00 pm - Contractions start happening now about every 3 - 5 min.
12:15 am - Decided it’s time to go to the hospital
1:00 am - Get to the hospital. Takes a women in labor awhile to get ready, down the stairs, and into the car.
3:45 am - Start pushing
4:20 am - Welcome Brendan into the World

Brendan is home now and Claire and I are trying to just soak it all in. His first night home on Saturday was rough. Claire and I were the stereotypical new parents… up all night, exhausted, and clueless. I had to make sure everything was alright with any noise or movement I heard from him. When he would cry, we would do the normal checks.. is he hungry, does he need a diaper change, and then plead with him to stop crying :-). Last night was a lot better. He slept from about 1:00 am to 5:00 am without waking up. Claire and I think he is getting cuter by the day but we might be a little biased.
