Phil had been telling me for a while that Jack is an Ogden and Ogdens are punctual and like things to be planned. Logically, he would arrive on his due date. I was dismissive of this notion, but Phil eneded up completely right. At 12:50 a.m. on June 15th I woke up having intense contractions that progressed to 3 minutes apart in a hurry. Within an hour, we were on our way to the hospital. I had a wonderful nurse who allowed me to get an epidural, even though I had technically progressed to far in such a short time. At 5:20 a.m., I was complete and 21 minutes later, Jack Thomas Ogden arrived weighing 8 lbs. 4 0z. and 21 1/2 inches long. The delivery was really fast, but we're both doing well. He has been a great baby so far (knock on wood) and he and Ryan even napped at the same time this afternoon after we arrived home and allowed me to get a two hour nap. I just hope things continue to go this well.


  1. Congrats! He looks really cute. I think he looks a lot like Ryan actually.

  2. He is so adorable! I am still jealous about the speed of your delivery...aren't we related?! How'd I get the short end of the stick in the labor/delivery department? Oh well, the outcome is the same I guess. Can't wait for our boys to grow up together.

  3. wow!

    i'm cracking up that phil said ogdens were punctual.

    he is so adorable and ryan looks super cute holding him.

    congratulations ogdens!

  4. Hooray, Jack! Thanks for giving mommy such a swift labor and delivery! All the other mommies are jealous!

    Hope Clark can meet Jack soon!

    Love you guys,

  5. Congrats! I love the picture of Ryan with his new baby brother! What a precious time for you all!

    I am so jealous of your body's ability to have a baby and come home so quickly! It is as if your body just adds having a baby to the list of to-dos along with "pick up milk" and "buy stamps."

  6. yeah! congrats! So glad he's here and didn't make his mama wait too long=)

  7. Congrats! And yeah for a quick delivery!!! Can't wait to see many, many more pictures of your two little dudes!

  8. Congratulations! He is so handsome! I love Ryan's proud face, they are going to be great brothers! So happy for you all, try to get some rest!!!
