Announcing the arrival of Maxwell Leif Hestenes! Born April 28th, 12:28 a.m., 9 lbs, 8 oz, and 22 inches long. I went into labor on the way home from work, although I thought they were Braxton Hixx contractions. By dinner time, things were picking up. We went to the hospital around 9 pm and I was 6 cm dialated. And by midnight it was time to push. Maggie watched the whole birth and was fascinated. Thankfully, Sean slept through it. Baby Max came in a hurry with only 1 and a half pushes. He had the umbilical cord wrapped around his neck which the docter was able to untangle. We are happy to be home now.
