Ridge Casper Murray

On Monday morning of October 12, while I was still sleeping my water broke. It was amazing how much water there was! Brady and I were so excited! My mom and Grandpa were already at our house so hurried and rushed to the hospital thinking labor might come quick. I didn't have any contractions the entire way there. When most of the amniotic fluid drained, my stomach felt really lumpy and it was easy to see the baby was pretty amazing! That is what the above picture is, my lumpy baby tummy.
Once I was all hooked up to the monitors the nurse found that she couldn't feel the baby's head. They did an ultrasound and found that sometime in the last four days since I had been checked, the baby had flipped back around and was breech again. So everyone got suited up for a c-section.

Since I already posted pictures from the operating room, I'm skipping that part, but I do have to one thing I have to include. When the doctor pulled the baby out, he asked Brady if he could see what it was, he said yes and jumped into the air pulled his mask off and gave me a kiss so I knew we had a boy before I saw!

When didn't have a name picked our for our handsome little boy, but Brady had three names that he has always liked so I told him that he could pick the name, thinking it would be one of the three. The kids and my mom and Grandpa came. We were a little worried about Brynlee's reaction because she had been hoping for a sister, but all she said was, "I'm glad he's a boy, he's so cute, and I want to hold my baby." How can you not love such a sweet baby?! We spent all day getting to know our new baby but still hadn't decided on a name. Brady decided to sleep on it and the next morning when he came back he had come up with some new names, our favorite one that seemed to fit him best was Ridge.

For his middle name we choose Casper after his Great-Grandpa (above) who is Richard Casper Merrill and his Great-Great Grandpa Casper Whittle Merrill.
