Weigh in

Baby Gabriel Jason Coster: weight 7.11 pounds. length 20 inches.

Baby Gabe was born March 25th @ 8:54 pm. At 5 pm my water was broken. At 8pm I was a 6 and got into the birthing tub (wasn't planning on delivering in it - but did!) and 54 minutes later we had our little baby Gabe here with us!

Note: Be careful what you ask for. These last months I have been praying and believing for a fast, smooth delivery. And I GOT FAST. Along with the fast comes more intense pain.

We are all doing great. Baby Gabe is a great eater and sleeper. Hasn't cried much, only when he got a little shot last night.

Jani and Gabe. 3.26.09

YEAH!!! So cute, he looks like Carson!!! I know what you mean about being careful for what you ask for, I did the same thing and ended up with a very fast labor at the end, once my water broke Zach was born 4 hours later, with the last hour being bery intense, went from 7 to 10 in about a half hour! God listens, we need to be more specific on how fast we want it I guess! Congratulations, I am looking forward to meeting him later!
