10 days early

Well, it happened. Sam was born yesterday at 4:19 pm. He was 7 lbs 8 oz., and 19 1/2 inches long. Lyss had the joy of feeling her water break around 12 yesterday afternoon. Of course, it happened on the one Saturday I was at work. We were planning on going in on Friday to have a C-section, but I guess he wanted to show who was in charge. The sad thing is we were getting ready for a family party for Olivia's birthday, which is today. It sounds like it was a pretty funny scene:

Maddie: "Mom, why are you naked?" As Alyssa is walking to the bathroom with a towel trying to stop the water.

Alyssa: "My water broke."

Olivia: "How did you break it, mom?"

Alyssa: "It came out of mom."

Olivia: "Okay."

Alyssa, looking at Maddie and reading the expression on her face: "Yep, we are going to have the baby today."

Maddie, sobbing uncontrollably: "But what about Livie's cake?! I wanna have some cake!"

All went smooth. Mom and baby are doing well

Proud Dad!

Lovin' time together

Rough day!

Finally, some R and R!

Congrats! He's a doll, err...I guess I should say he's handsome right? Yay! We're glad you are both doing well. Enjoy this fun time together!

May is going to be a big birthday month for you guys!

Oh he is soooo cute...He looks like you dave in that last picture...Maddie is a true Girardo worried about the cake. We have to have our cake. What worries me is that Connor did the same thing...he was scheduled for C-section and decided to come on his own too...I think you already have a Connor though in Maddie but Kylie reminds me of Maddie too. I bet the girls will just drool over him and mommy him too. I can't wait to see him. I am probably coming up June 4-11 so I will definitely get me some Sam time!!!!

Congrats--we are excited for your family. Andy always talks about how he thinks Hank is so cool. You will love seeing how different a boy is from girls.
