Baby Raden

RADEN JEFFREY PERRERO
July 28, 2011
6 lbs. 15 oz.
19 in.

We have a new edition to the Perrero family. Our sweet little boy came just about a week early and thankfully so because I could not take one more day of pregnancy. I was induced on Thursday and it was a long day of waiting for my turn. Luckily they fit me in at the end of the day and by 4:00 p.m. I was set up in my room and ready to get the show on the road. They always say labor is half as long the second time and I didn't believe them...but they were right my labor with Brae lasted about 9 hours and Rade took only 4 hours. It was all very fast!

Here is me and Brae waiting for baby Rade to come. We were so excited, she didn't have a clue that her world would be changing though. She has had a few rough days and luckily we have lots of family around to keep her being spoiled and to give her some extra love. Not even 24 hours after Rade arrived Brae made the comment, "I'm sick of that baby."
When it was time to deliver Rade, Grandpa Greg took Brae to play on the playground outside. When she came back she was very very surprised to find a little baby. She immediately loved him and hasn't stopped since.
I love when babies are at the hospital and so sleepy. Wishing he was still so sleepy, especially at night.
We love our new baby Raden and can't wait to see what his little personality will be like!
