And then there were 4

On Saturday we welcomed the arrival of Bryan Dee Chaffee to our family. He was 2 weeks early but very welcomed. I woke up Saturday morning around 1 am with steady contractions. We needed to have antibiotics 4 hours before delivery and because of how fast I deliver I was a little nervous. First thing in the morning I called Aunt Becky who works as a nurse at Banner Gateway and she told us to come on in. We arrived at the hospital to be induced and were able to get the antibiotics in plenty of time. There was really no active labor at all while we received the antibiotics; it was very boring and anticlimactic. The on call Doctor came in our room and broke my water at 6:09 pm. Shortly after that the active labor kicked into high gear and Bryan Dee Chaffee was born at 6:59pm. That’s right just three pushes and he was here. He weighed in at 7lbs 5oz and 20 inches long. He is perfect in every way and the kids just can’t get enough of their new little brother.



Welcome to the world Bryan Dee Chaffee!
Alysen & Little Bryan
The kids just can't get enough of Baby Bryan

Neither can Mom & Dad
