Brylee was born at 11:12 AM on October 31, 2007. That's right.....a Halloween baby. The day began with me (Mark) waking up at around 12:15 AM. I felt a little wetness on my pants and was thinking, oh no, I wet my pants....how embarrassing. At this point, I really was hoping I was dreaming. Then, I noticed that Julie was no longer laying beside me. Not only that, I noticed that our once normal mattress had become a water bed and the entire bed was soaked. Well, I put 2 and 2 together and noticed that Julie was in the bathroom. She came out soon after that and off we went to the hospital. I didn't feel quite as dumb thinking that I wet the bed when I found out Julie had the same thoughts that she may have we the bed.
We arrived at the ER around 1:30 and we immediately went up-stairs to Labor and Delivery. I was kicked out of the room while Julie got changed and checked. She was at 3 cm and 90% effaced at that time. The labor progressed and at 4 AM she was dilated to 4 cm. At around 6 AM, Julie got tired of the contractions and asked for the epidural. By 7 AM, she was up to 7 cm. At 9 AM, she was up to 9 cm. She started pushing at around 10:40 and little Brylee made her debut at 11:12 AM.
