Baby Jack has arrived!

I just opened this email from Katy and thought you might want to see it too.

After 41 weeks 12 hours and 29 minutes, baby Jack has finally arrived! We are so excited to finally be parents and very nervous to take him home. Jack was born 7 lbs 9oz and 19 inches long.

After reaching a week over the due date, Katy and I decided yesterday to hit the track for about an hour. Later on Saturday night after dinner, Katy's contractions started to increase and were around 6-10 minutes apart. We arrived home after eating some dinner and were bored out of our minds. Believe it or not, I was actually reading a book on a Saturday night. As the night progressed the contractions started to increase to a consistant 6 minutes apart and at that point we decided to go to the hospital at 10:45pm.

Only dialated to a three, we took doctor's orders to walk around the nurses station for about a half hour. I don't believe I have ever seen a woman go from being in pretty good condition to one who can't walk anymore in a matter of minutes. Contractions intensified and Katy went from a 3 to a 5. At this point, Dr. Rice (our doctor) decided to admit her.

After getting into a room, Katy's wish came true very quickly; she recieved an epidural before even being officially admitted. Finally, after about 11 hours of heavy contractions, Katy started to push around 11am. At 12:29 pm on Sunday, Jack William Warren was born. He is a beautiful baby with a very, very cone shaped head.

We plan to stay a couple days in the hospital returning home on Tuesday. Thanks for all the support and prayers.
Clay and Katy
