He weighed 7 lbs 14 oz and was 20-1/4 inches long.
Labor and delivery went well and only lasted about 5-1/2 hours. Chase had a bit of trouble breathing and had to have oxygen and his mouth and nose had to be deep suctioned out. My midwife thinks he may have swallowed a bit of fluid on his way out and that's what caused the breathing problems. He did start getting better that morning, and he was nursing really well, so she wasn't too worried after she got him to pink up and his sucking reflex going.
We went back to see her on Saturday, and she checked him over really well, and he's perfectly fine now. He is a bit Jaundiced from being 2 weeks early, but it's nothing a couple of sun baths a day, for a week or so won't fix.
He loves to eat, and he loves to sleep during the day, but not at night quite yet. However Saturday night was a lot better than Friday night. We'll have to work on getting his day's and night straightened out, but if that's the least I have to worry about with him than I am happy. :)
I am doing well, my uterus prolapsed, but nothing extremely serious. I do have to take it really easy, and I'm not allowed to vacuum, or mop for a month, and I cannot pick up Gavin and Dylan for at least 6 weeks. I have to lay on my stomach 3-6 times a day for at least 30 minutes and do kegle exercises for the next six weeks or longer to strengthen the muscles and keep my uterus where it's supposed to be. So basically I can't do a whole lot, and will probably go crazy over the next month and a half!
Here are a few pics of the boys with the new baby, and a link to some pictures my mom took on Friday.

Although it was a huge suprise to get it this soon, I knew that they were probably planning on getting us one for Christmas because my mom was quizzing me on "if" we were to get a computer would we want a desktop, or a laptop. She's too funny, not very sneaky though :)

After the parade we went to mom and dad's to eat lunch. Because we were having people over to our house later that night, we weren't going to be able to spend that evening with them.
I got this picture while driving to mom's house.... don't worry, I was stopped at a stop light :)
After lunch we headed back home to set up for all the people we were having over. I don't know how many people we actually invited, but it was pretty much whoever we saw within a few weeks of the fourth we told them about it! We ended up having probably about 25-30 people plus their kids. I'll bet there were over 15 kids over here, including mine. It was crazy, but it was really fun, and no one got hurt! We cooked out hamburgers, hot dogs, and brauts. There was a ton of food that people brought, and we supplied, so I'm pretty sure no one went hungry.
About 8:30-ish it started to rain, and then poured for about an hour to an hour and a half. It let up just a little bit so Chris and some teens from our church got to set off the big fireworks. It was a pretty good show if I do say so myself... of course I might be a little biased in my opinion. There were a few parts that made me worry a bit, because the tubes were a little wet, and didn't shoot the fireworks up as high as they should have gone, but thankfully no one was hurt, and we didn't burn anything down!
Chris ended up burning 3 of his fingers because he was trying to light two fuses at once, and one lit, and he didn't want to stop trying to light the other one... so it was his own fault :) But that was the only injury the whole night, not to shabby.
Everyone ended up leaving about 11:00 except the teens that were here, they ended up staying all night playing their video games on the big screen. I went to bed about 1, and Chris didn't come to bed until 3 or so. Needless to say we slept in (well, as much as you can with little ones)the next morning. Then it was out to pick up all the debris from the fireworks... it was everywhere! I thought for sure it was going to take an eternity to clean it all up. Thankfully those boys were still here, because we put them to work! It wasn't the big stuff that made the mess, but the little black cats, and kid stuff that had been set off since 5:30 the night before! We picked up the big stuff, then Chris got the leaf blower, and blew what he could into the middle of the street, and we set it on fire. Then all we had to do was sweep up the ashes when they cooled.
Here's the clean up pictures. We put the little guys to work too! However, they didn't last to long!
After cleaning up we went swimming and then took some much needed naps. The boys slept until 6:00 and would've slept longer, but we woke them up. Then we went to eat at Aunt Melinda and Franks house. It was a really great couple of days.
