Baby Jude is Here!

These last few days have been a whirlwind. I went into my doctor's appointment on Thursday, and was given the opportunity to schedule an induction for Friday. Since it was only one day away from my due date, I happily agreed. We went in at 6:30 on Friday morning and started the induction at 8:30. When I was induced with Lenna it took 8 hours, so I was expecting a long wait. However, God answered my prayers and this one was much quicker! By 12:50 I was pushing and the baby was born at 1:00. I couldn't believe how easy it was -- of course the epidural was wonderful. Our doctor let Jason deliver (this is the 3rd time he has delivered-- he's a pro now!) I would be a nervous wreck to do that, but he has no fear! Anwyay, my friend from church was our nurse on the post -partum floor and she was so sweet to keep the baby for a few hours so we could sleep the first night. Thank you, Jessica! They let us come home early, so we will be recuperating and trying to get used to life with 4 little ones! Please keep us in your prayers. We got no sleep last night, so hopefully tonight will be better!
Here are some pictures from the hospital and at home.
