Dalin David Hansen

He's Here!

Our sweet little man came 3 weeks early, On August 27th, 2010!
I went into labor on my own Friday morning but didn't believe it was real. So I went about my day. At about 4:00 I decided that the contractions that were coming every 2-3 minutes were real and that we better head to the hospital. I was still in major denial and knew that they were just going to send me home. We took the kids to a friends house and headed to the hospital. I had been dilated to a 3 for the last couple of weeks and sure enough, when they checked me at the hospital I was dilated to a 5. I was in labor and we were having a baby that day.

I had an epidural put in a little while later, and while I couldn't feel the contractions anymore the epi made me really sick. Good thing it didn't take him much longer to come after that. I only pushed for about 10 minutes.

Dalin was born at 11:36pm. 7lbs, 110z, 20 inches long. He is healthy, and has a full head of beautiful brownish-blond hair. He is the most loved little boy ever, and we couldn't have asked for anything more.

I couldn't be happier for you that he came EARLY!!! I have to tell you that Troy and I teared up while looking at Tami's photos of the birth and afterward. It was so touching.
Your pictures are so adorable and it's so easy to see how very loved Dalin is. I'm looking forward to snuggling him :)
We just can't wait to see him and all of you of course! We send you all lots of hugs and kisses. See you soon! Love you lots :)
