Kaiden Pateman Jones is here!

So we got an unexpected surprise 3 weeks early! Kaiden Pateman Jones decided he couldnt wait to join our gorgeous family and was born February 7, 2011 at 11:42am...
I woke up with what I thought might be contractions, and sure enough, they got intense pretty quickly and within about 3-4 hours I had him at home with my wonderful midwife, Dixie!
It definatly felt like it went alot slower than last time, but still quick enough for me to bear through the pain :) (as much as you possibly can)
He was:
6 lb 14 oz
20" long
Light Hair- I have a feeling he will have pretty light hair- probably blonde/dark blonde
Has Daddy's dimples- one on his cheek and on his chin!
I had a feeling he would be early cuz Xander was 2 weeks early, but wasn't expecting this early! He was born 5 days before Xander's birthday- which is this Saturday, the 12th. So, they are just under 2 years apart.
SO glad he is finally here, SO glad he is perfectly healthy despite the early arrival, and SO glad I am done being pregnant!!
Thank you SO much to Dixie Story (midwife) and Jennifer Budge for helping out with this wonderful experience! We love you both!

YAY! Congratulations! I'm bummed that I haven't checked your blog earlier! That's so exciting. He looks beautiful. I have a whole theory about women who have lots of boys. They are gorgeous and have lots of energy... you fit the bill.
