Here are the long-awaited pictures!
The night before the hospital. This is only 1 of 2 belly pictures I took of my entire pregnancy!

We arrived at the hospital at 6:30am to be induced. Ready to get this baby out!

The AMAZING view from our hospital window on the delivery floor.

Presenting Porter Reynolds Oblad
He was born at 5:38pm on May 20th, 2010. He took FOREVER to get here but with only 4 pushes in 3 minutes he was out! He weighed 8 lbs 11 oz and was 21 inches long!! (Lawson was 7 lbs. 13 oz and 20 1/2 inches long; Makayla was 7 lbs. 6 oz. and 19 inches). I could tell he was going to be a big baby!

Picture with mom and dad

Hey world!

He hated his first bath :)

Getting all clean

All clean and fuzzy

Excited big brother!
He asked me how the baby came out of my tummy. We had to have a watered down anatomy talk. :)

I was holding Porter when the kids came in and Makayla got a cute surprised look on her face when she saw the baby. She loves him!

First family picture. We've got our hands FULL!!

Grandma Lynnie's 4th grandbaby.

Not quite 24 hours old.
He's a great baby! He hasn't really cried much- even when I change his diaper. He seems to be a pretty relaxed baby. We love him and are glad he's in our family.

That family picture is great, with Lawson squirming and Makayla looking lovingly at the new babe. He sure is precious, and you can definitely tell he's an Oblad...BIG eyes!
