Congratulations! Way to go for a speedy delivery of such a BIG boy! I can't wait to see him :) And you are definitely going to have to tell us what happened to Gene- haha! Enjoy your little man- I am so happy for you!

Wow!! Asher's even faster than Sarah. Check-in at 10:30 am, born at 12:15 am. Those extra few days certainly did make him your biggest baby!! If I remember correctly, all the Luidhardt boys were 9+ pounds, so you got lucky with your first 2 boys. Enjoy your time at the hospital before going home to 3 kiddos.

I meant 12:15 pm, 1 hour 45 minutes later. Oops!

Congratulations guys!! So excited for you! :) Annie, I'm jealous--it took me 26 hours to get my 9 pound baby delivered. ;) Can't wait to see pictures of baby Asher!

Wow congrats, I think I have you beat on the delivery time though. I think it was 45 mins when I got the hospital and Darren was delivered. I even assisted on an epidural too so they gave me extra strength and then I couldn't even move my legs at all. I couldn't of guess any closer then that too, my guess was Sept 4th @10p, good job. Can't wait to see pics. Hope Gene is doing well too.
