Another BIRTH day! Baby boy #2 has arrived!

 So here I am before the baby came. Are you ready for another birth story? Well if you are then keep reading and if not, just skip along and look at all the pics because my boys are super cute! :)

I should start from Wednesday (May 11th) at my doctors apt. where my doctor checked to see if I was progressing and turns out I was dilated at a 4 and 70% effaced. My doctor jokingly (but not really joking) told me she wanted me to wait until Monday to have the baby since she would be out of town for the weekend. Well turns out that Sunday night (May 15th) I started getting contractions that were pretty frequent. (It must have been the long walks I took all weekend and a little bit of jumping or more accurately what I like to call "moon walking" on the tramp earlier that day that helped get it going :) I was getting the contractions every 3-5 minutes about a minute or so long. We were in the middle of a movie and so I told Tay lets wait until the end of the movie just to be sure....and yep they kept getting stronger so we went to the hospital (around 11pm or so). The hospital admitted me and we got all set up in a delivery room. The nurses checked me and I was still dilated at a 4. My doctor was still out of town so our backup was Dr. Powers (pic below) name eh? He came and met me and we decided to see how the contractions went for a while longer and to see if I would continue to dilate. Well even though my contractions were getting really strong, I wasn't changing much and I was super tired so they gave me a little bit of morphine around 3am to help me sleep. Around 7am they came and checked me and my contractions due to the morphine really decreased.  They then put me on pitocin to help get my contractions going again....and once again they got really! The nurse checked me though and I had a little bit of progression to a 5 and a half and 100% effaced.  Not much, but it was enough for them to decide to break my water. I decided I wanted an epidural and just in time too. I got the epidural around 11:45, they broke my water at 12pm, and by 12:20 I was fully dilated and ready to start pushing. ...
I could still feel and move my legs but numb otherwise so it was perfect. They had me start pushing around 12:32 and by 12:35 or three contractions later our healthy baby boy was born. 3 whole minutes!...he beat Bridger by 2 minutes and I thought Bridger was fast!

Mason Colton Weight! 
7lbs. 8oz. 19 inches! 

 We are so happy to have this special addition to our family and as you can see from the pictures below, Bridger is excited/confused about having a baby brother :)

Bridger loves giving Mason kisses! It's so cute (see one of the pics above). Since we've brought him home, I think he's given him close to 100 kisses by now. He will be such a good big brother.   

 Thanks Taylor for giving me beautiful babies! I knew it when I saw your childhood home videos and what a cute kid you were :)
 Look at all that dark hair! Bridger's hair was dark too, but not quite as dark and not quite as much either.

 Something that surprised me was how little Mason seemed to me. Bridger is just getting so big now! Having another baby has been such a joy and I'm so grateful to be Bridger and Mason's mother.

Look at those toes... So little! I love it!


  1. Congrats! I can't believe he is here. I love all his hair. Cami it's just you and all the boys now! Love you!

  2. Cami, you are a rock star! I can not believe how amazing you are (you always have been though); Those boys are so lucky to have you. Good luck these next few months with those gorgeous little ones!

    P.s. That quiet book you made was incredible. You should sell them.

  3. Congrats Cami! He is beautiful! I LOVE all the dark hair! You are such a good mommy! I hope you are feeling well and adjusting well. Love you!

  8. I can't believe you'd be willing to sit through a movie when having contractions that often. I love babies with hair-I'll die if I have any bald ones. You're such a good mom! So when's number three coming? Can't get enough of your stories :)

  9. Seeing the photos of your two boys together makes me smile so big. They are so adorable and will be the best of friends.

    Congratulations again and I'm so glad all went well with your delivery.

    Ditto to what Emily said about selling those quiet books. I totally want one!

  11. Congratulations! He is a doll! :)

  12. You guys do make incredibly cute babies - it's not just Taylor that is making them!! I love the picture of you 2 over Mason. So sweet. I'm glad we got to see you guys a couple of times recently - we are so lucky!

    Oh and tell Tay a friend really asked me to be on her Ragnar team instead of just using me as a back up ;) I'll see him at the finish line!!

  13. congrats!!! he is such a beautiful little babe. i am LOVING that hair!

  14. First of all... 3 Minutes? That is incredible! I'm kinda jealous... ;) But I can't get over how adorable your boys are and how much hair mason has! My goodness your family is adorable! Congrats! and Best wishes to you all!
