It's a BOY!

It's been quite a weekend! I thought I might be in labor Thur. night as I was having more action than normal, but woke up feeling fine Friday after a good nights' rest... I'd been having contractions on and off for about a week, so we were praying it would be soon. We went out for lunch to an Indian Buffet restaurant and enjoyed the holiday with Bryan home. I had a couple of stronger contractions that afternoon, but after a walk to the store later afternoon, my water broke and I went full force into labor. We were able to get Jack to a friends and get to the hospital by around 8. Things went smoothly and progressed quickly from there and Max (Greatest) Shen Li (spiritual strength) Thompson made his appearance at 12:45am on Saturday morning. 8lbs 7 oz, much bigger than jack and WAY bigger than the last estimate by the Dr.... What a beautiful baby though... Max and I spent Saturday in the hospital, Bryan was able to spend his day split between us and Jack at home. We came home today around lunch time and have had a great first afternoon home. Jack LOVES babies and is slowly adjusting to Max. He keeps calling him Nette (his friend Josiah's baby sisters name), so we are working on Max :o)
Here's the video of Jack meeting max for the first time. It was right before his nap, so the timing wasn't great, but he did well. He looks a bit confused :o)
