Brayden Thomas Mitchell is here!!!

On Thursday, August 2, 2012 at 12:05 pm, we welcomed our little guy Brayden into the world! My water broke on Wednesday afternoon while hanging out with my sister and brother; so I called Ben at work and told him it was time to come home... "I think my water broke!!" We headed to the hospital where it was confirmed that indeed my water did brake and we were staying to have a baby. The look on Ben's face when they told us we were staying at the hospital was priceless. I think that actually hearing the nurse say that were we staying at the hospital to have a baby made it all become very real to Ben. It was a pretty long night and morning from that point on. After about 18 hours of labor and about 3 hours of pushing Brayden was FINALLY in my arms! I am so happy to finally have our healthy son in my arms. I love being a mom and am amazed on just how much I am instantly in love with this little guy. Things are going well at home; we are adjusting to life with a baby but we are loving every minute of it. Thank you for your prayers and support in the last few days, we feel so loved!

We were just told that we are staying at the hospital... About to be parents!

One happy Daddy!
