The Daily Chase

Saturday, June 16, 2012

Hello World!

It's been a crazy, exciting month for us, but we're happy to report that Baby Chase is finally here!!! After a week of bed rest, three days in the hospital, and a week at home we are slowly getting into a daily routine with Mr. Brock. So, without further ado, here's a recap of our first few days with our little Brock Star...

Vincent Brock Chase
Born June 6, 2012 at 2:00am
9lbs, 22in

  Thinking we were going to be induced at 5pm on June 5th, I headed to the hospital after a day of labor pains. It turns out Brock was determined to share his birthday with his daddy and I went into labor without having to be induced. Vincent arrived after work around 9pm to find a pain-free, relaxed wife (thanks to the aid of an epidural) and we passed time watching 'Tombstone' and Fox News. The doctor arrived just in time for delivery and after 2 short pushes, Brock was here! I couldn't have asked for an easier delivery...it was a magical experience and nothing like what I expected!

 Both sets of Grandparents and Vincent's younger brother, Bryan, were anxiously waiting in the waiting room. After getting his weight and measurements taken, Brock was ready to meet the family!

Planning ahead, I made a hospital door sign for my birthday boys after finding out they were going to share the same birthday! Brock had non-stop visitors while we were in the hospital, but he managed to find plenty of time to sleep and hang out with daddy.

Before we knew it, it was time to go home! Vince had to go back to work, so Mammy & Pappy picked us up and drove us home. Tasha was SO excited to meet Brock and has become is biggest protector!

We couldn't be happier and are so thankful for our sweet, healthy baby boy!

XOXO,
