Welcome Norby #4

Brady Scott was born on October 10, 2013 two weeks early. He weighed in at 7 lbs 10 oz and 20 inches long. He came fast and furious but we are so happy everything worked out in the end. Wednesday evening Joe and I were watching tv when I felt a gush. Figuring my water broke I ran to the bathroom only to discover that I was gushing bright red blood. I immediately called our friend to come be with the kids (who were already asleep) and called the on call dr. Then within 10 minutes Joe and I were heading out the door to meet my dr at the hospital. Within 3 hours Brady was delivered by emergency c-section. We found that I had placenta abruption and Brady's cord was wrapped around his body pretzel style so the doctor and nurses needed to move fast to make sure that both Brady and I would be ok. It wasn't the most ideal delivery and I really didn't want a c-section on my last baby, but I am incredibly grateful for a doctor that did what he had to do to save me and the baby.
We are adjusting ok to having 4 kids, it just seems even more chaotic around here than normal. He is a calm and sweet baby. The kids all adore him and fight over who gets to hold him.
