Tai Nathan was born last night, June 29th, at 9:16 pm. He was 7 lbs. 5 oz. and 18.5 inches. Ambur was induced becase she didn't want His birthday to be too close to Trey (July 10). So now they are in different months at least!
We got the call to come in at 1:45 pm. By 3 pm she was all hooked up and then the contractions started coming. Ambur was thinking she would like to try to go natural but by 6 pm she was at a 6 and wanted the epidural. She needed 2 doses to get it going so it took almost an hour since requesting to finally get the pain to subside.
After that things went smooth. Grandma and the boys showed up right as she was getting ready to push just after 9 pm. They were being so funny waiting at the door! Ambur pushed twice and he was out. We didn't have a name yet but didn't start to worry yet. When Trey finally came in the room he couldn't stop welling up with tears. It was so sad!
Ambur and the baby had a very peaceful night and they let us go home about 11 am this morning. We came up with the name about 5 minutes before we left! Tai in Chinese has a few meanings. It is probably not ironic that it means both "greatest" and "servant."
All are welcome to stop by if you wish, but please call first.
