Welcome Baby Taz!!

Amber was scheduled to be induced Sunday- so Kasey and I (unable to afford a flight) hopped in the car with Maddux Saturday morning and drove 14 hours to show up and surprise her at her door. The surprise was totally worth the drive!!

So, Sunday we all headed to the hospital where Amber was started on Pitocin and we all waited and waited and waited. Nothing Happened! (Poor Amber!!!) Tyler explains it all best HERE. :) So we all went home, (Poor Amber!!!)

Tuesday (St. Patty's Day) the doctor decided to try again, but softening her cervix first. Low and behold, her body decided it was time to have the baby all on it's own! At about 8:00am the doctor told her that the ETA for Baby (sex unknown) was around 11:00. So Kasey, my mom and I took our time getting to the hospital, arriving at around 9:00. Just as we walked into the deliver room, Amber told the nurse she was ready to push and could feel a lot of pressure! My mom was still a few minutes behind and everything turned to panic trying to get her there ontime! So much for 11:00. Within five minutes, mom had arrive, the doctor was there and Amber was pushing. Baby Boy Taz Tyler Carlson made his beautiful arrival just a couple of minutes later! He is a doll and absolutely perfect! I am so glad I got to be there!

Here are a few pics of the road trip and my newest cute nephew!
