Lucas John Richins

He was born on July 30th at 10:07 am. He came 6 days early and weighed a hefty 8 pds 5 oz, and 19 in long. The thought honestly never crossed my mind that I would ever have a baby much over 7 pounds. I have always wanted a chubby baby, hopefully he will stay that way. He came the day after Steve's b-day. Steve's b-day was a little bit crazy for me. I tried to make a special dinner, which turned out to be not so special, just got a little tired. Then we had some neighbors over for cake and ice cream. I ended up making two cakes, because my first cake turned out hideously ugly, but was surprisingly good. That night I had a hard time sleeping as usual so I went out on the couch. I woke up at about 4:30 after having a scary dream that I was in labor and no one would take me to the hospital. After getting up to go to the bathroom I started to notice that I was having contractions. I just thought they were braxton hicks so I tried to go back to sleep. I couldn't and decided to get up and finish the dishes I had left in the sink. I knew when I left them there the night before that this would be when I went into labor. I thought that maybe I should start timing the contractions just in case, they were about every 6 min. At 6 Steve woke up also, and saw the lights on and came out to see if everything was ok. By that time the contractions were stronger and at about every 4 min. I was still in denial that I was in labor, but Steve freaked out and called his parents to tell them he was taking me to the hospital. By the time we left for the hospital I was starting to feel some serious pain. When we finally got there a little after 7 am I was already at a 7, the nurse was awesome and got me my epidural and he was born 2 hours later. He is so adorable, we are so happy to have him. The boys love him to death, and they always make me nervous when ever they get to close. He has been such a good baby so far and I hope it stays this way. Here are some pics of him.
