3: October 11, 2012! such a special day! I had to fight really hard to be able to be induced on this day. My regular doctor was unavailable to deliver, so I asked to be delivered by one of his partners. It sounds simple, but it turned into a real hassle! All so my Noah could have a cool birthday. I hope he thanks me some day! delivery went really smoothly! I labored for 3 1/2 hours, and only pushed for 2 contractions!
5: This was such a special day, we were able to snuggle our new little one for two hours after he was born before we were taken to recovery. It was so fun to introduce him to Jackson. Jackson seemed to think he was pretty awesome! On the whole, Jackson adjusted pretty easily to life with a baby brother.

53: There was once a time when Noah just sat in one spot and played nicely with his toys and was always in the same place i left him, but those days are no longer! He is crawling all over the place.
