A Quick Arrival
Allow me to introduce Colin! He was so excited to join this family that he surprised them by arriving fifteen days early. This seasoned Mom went into labor and decided to shower and blow out her hair before heading to the hospital. Since this was her second pregnancy, she thought they had hours before they needed to be at the hospital. Needless to say, childbirth is never predictable and in hindsight, that was probably a bad choice. Mom and Dad barely made it to the hospital in time! Colin was born just a few minutes after making into the labor and delivery room. Mom and Dad were thrilled it wasn’t in the parking, but definitely wish they had got there in time for some pain killers. But regardless, Mom did look fabulous! 😉
Two Sweet Boys
Colin is the polar opposite of his big brother. Lucas was blonde (at least the little hair he had was blonde) and blue eyed. Colin popped out with a full-head of dark hair, darker complexion and dark eyes. His personality also seems to be quite the opposite…super relaxed (or maybe Mom is just more relaxed the second time around!)
Mom’s First Thoughts
First, shock that I was still alive after labor…at the time I was sure it was touch and go. After that settled in, absolutely thrilled at the perfection of our baby boy we waited so long for.
