In labor...NOT in labor...in labor...Baby!

Our regular scheduled checkup turned into quite a day! High blood pressure called for
some tests and monitoring of Emily and the baby.
With everything checking out okay, the doctor said we could go home, but Emily would be
on bed rest.
So...out to eat we went...Perkins of course.
Next came VERY Strong contractions for over 1 hour
So...back to the hospital we go to be monitored.
1 hour later...nurse says there isn't any change and so Emily will most likely go home.
But...the doctor said no, keep her and monitor for at least one more hour,
Because...WE LIVE 1 1/2 HOURS AWAY FROM THE HOSPITAL!
So...We stayed.
and it's a very good thing we did!
here is the order of the next events:
Emily's mom (Cathy) shows up
joel takes Cathy and Corbin to Hotel
Emily calls and says her water broke...to late for meds
Joel breaks the speed law
Joel gets to hospital at 11:35pm
Emily says the baby is coming at 11:44pm
Baby is born 11:46 pm
Doctor shows up 11:47pm
mommy was a trooper!
Mommy and baby are doing great and looking beautiful!
God is great...all the time!!!
Getting ready to be monitored for high blood pressure
after scheduled appointment.

Corbin giving mom some love and attention.
Guess who decided he wanted to see the world?

Welcome to the world Elias! You are one lucky boy to have great parents and a fun big brother! He will teach you many things!

Harrison ignored Emmett for the first week, and then gradually started looking and touching him. He never had any major meltdown, jealous moments - even yet, so I hope Corbin does equally as well for you!

Congratulations on your beautiful baby boy!

Congratulations Davis Family! What a day you have all had. Enjoy your rest while you can!

Congratulations!!! I'm so thrilled for all of you -that Elias is here, that Joel made it on time, that you were all at the hospital and not in a car somewhere trying to get to the hospital! I guess he really wanted OUT! Can't wait to keep seeing more pictures of this cute little guy and his big brother!

Emily! You are amazing. Great job. Thanks for the run down Joel and pictures. We can't wait to meet the little guy and introduce him to Zeke!!

WOW!!! What a day! So glad that the Dr let you stay in the hospital...to bad he/she couldn't make the big event! Little Elias has some birth story to hear about.

Thanks for the prompt posting!! You know we bloggers need to be up to date on all the latest.

Elias is so adorable.
Well, the prophets have arrived:
First Isaiah, then Ezekiel, and now Elias, Monday Tuesday, Thursday. 4 days apart. That is unbelievable. Who would have thought when the pregnant ladies took that picture together that they would all give birth with just 4 days seperating them.
Wow.
God Bless you all.

Elias is a beautiful name. I LOVE it! I am so glad we have internet here at camp so I could check every so often.

He is absolutely adorable! I just wish we were closer.

Have fun being a big brother Corbin! It's lots of fun!

God's richest blessings on you all!

Funny... Dan and Christine's comment is just what I had been thinking! It's amazing how many babies have been born/will be born this week!
