He's here, he's here, he's finally here!

Mindee and Jerry gladly welcome Tayden Jeremy Chidester!

We already love him SO much and can't believe he hasn't been in our lives forever! It feels like we have known him forever!

Things are going really well! I feel great, Jerry is in heaven, and even Bentley has welcomed the baby! He is actually very gentle with him. Tayden makes any noise and Bentley is very concerned and tries to make sure everything is ok!

Tayden was born 7/11/2009 ant 12:48 midnight! After a VERY long day of contractions. We went to the hospital early friday morning! He weighed 7Ibs 6oz and was 21.5 inches long.

Jerry got to be a BIG part of the delivery. He got to "glove and suit up". It was a great experience for him! He was the first to hold Tayden! It was really special! Tayden was under a lot of stress so after the cord was cut they had to rush him over to NICU. They had a little area set up in the room, and after they got everything worked out, then I got to hold him!

I already LOVE being a mom! Especially because Tayden slept really well last tomorrow I might feel differently! Haha!

Thank you everyone for your love and support! It has meant SO much to Jerry and I!
