Bienvenido al Mundo

At 0537 the morning of 22 January the phone rang informing us that we should hurry to the hospital. At 0602 we arrived at the hospital. At 0757 Nurse Melissa hooked-up Linsey to an IV that included a steady drip of Pitocin. At 1100 Linsey decided that perhaps an epidural could be her friend after all. At 1320 Nurse Melissa came to investigate the situation because the baby's heart rate indicated some type of stress. At 1320 and 30 seconds Nurse Melissa determined that the stress was due to the head of said baby coming into the world. At 1320 and 35 seconds Nurse Melissa called for the doctor while admonishing Linsey not to even think about coughing or laughing. At 1320 and 40 seconds Linsey turned off the rerun of Law & Order that we were watching. At 1325 Dr. Joseph arrived and scrambled to find sterile booties for his shoes and a stool to put at the foot of the bed. At 1330 Isaac Kenneth burst into the world and quickly found his way into the waiting arms of Mommy and Daddy. Isaac entered the world weighing 8 lbs 15 ounces and measured 20 inches. At 1730 Isaac met his older brother Caleb and Caleb gave him a kiss. At 1731 Caleb was running up and down the hospital corridors with Uncle Lyman because hospital corridors are far more exciting than new babies.

Meet Isaac!


Linsey and Isaac
Note that a 5.5 hour labor is much better than a 17 hour labor. The sibling rivalry begins already and Isaac is winning.


Isaac is awfully cute.


Kenny, Linsey, and Isaac

Felicidades! We are so happy for all 4 of you, especially for Linsey's very short labor! And Carlos doesn't take it personally that Isaac Kenneth and he won't get to share the same birthday (today), since the little guy has the honor of sharing the Ambassador's birthday!

Can't wait to meet him!

Love, Heather, Carlos and Sebastian

Congratulations! He is so handsome. We, of course, love the name as it was one of our top three choices. Hooray for a short labor and a healthy baby and mom. Sending lots of love your way.
