Aidan Marden Ashby is here!




Yes! Aidan was born on Thursday August 7 at 6:57 PM & weighed 7 lbs. I actually woke up to my water breaking about 8 AM & there was no turning back! Labor wasn't too bad (with the epidural of course) & I only had push for 12 minutes!

Aidan was about 3 weeks early, but scored a 10 on his apgar test and is a fiesty little fellow. His name actually means "little fire". His middle name "Marden" is after my grandpa Robert Marden Johnson. (I'll have to do a post soon about what a great man he is.)

Aidan looks alot like Bob-except for his hair...its so thick & dark!(Although they both have hair that likes to stick up in the back!:) We are so excited to have him join our family!



Ethan's first look at his brother. Aunt Kathryn is holding Aidan. (Matt & Kathryn were so great to take off work and watch Ethan all day!) So far the adjustment hasn't been too bad...except that Ethan started to gag after watching me change a poopy diaper.:)

Yes! I'm so happy you are doing well! Welcome Aiden! I'm sure we'll have an initiation into Hootie's fan-club sooner or later, so I better make sure he pays as much attention to me as possible before Hootie takes over the world! I can't wait to come home and visit you and your sweet little family. Love you Emily!
