Robert Wells Knowlton, IV

Robert Wells Knowlton was finally born on October 6th at 3:25 pm. He weighs in at 8lbs 1 oz and 20 inches long (although they joked in the delivery room he would lose an inch of that when the cone head went away). I was scheduled to be induced sometime between midnight and midnight on the 6th so I wasn't sure exactly how to prepare. Luckily they called me in at 6:30 am. (I found out when they moved me upstairs that some people being induced still hadn't been called at 6:30 pm.) After I got hooked up to the monitor they noticed I was already having some pretty good contractions on my own. Time flew by and by 3:00 I was ready to push out my baby boy. What a miracle he is. I think he looks more like Rob's side of the family but only time will tell. He is such a good baby, and we are so lucky to have him in our family.
