We are pleased to announce the birth of Tanner Morrison Davis. He was born on May 5, 2009 at 5:31pm. He was 7lbs. 3oz. 21 in. long. Jessica and Tanner are doing great. Jessica did an amazing job and her body was definitely ready to deliver. She went in to get checked by her doctor and her belly measured a whole centimeter more than the day before and she had dilated to a 5cm, as the day before she was only at a 4cm. Her doctor sent her to the hospital and they got some antibiotics in her for her strep b. She then started her pitocin at 1:30pm. When it came time to push she only pushed for a series of 3 contractions that only lasted about 10 mins. or less. So the actual labor only lasted about 4 hrs. She did really good and seems to be recovering good. Tanner, like Hayden, looks more like an Abel than a Davis. Maybe the next will be mine. He's cute and we're glad to have the addition to our family.

We want to apologize for our lack of updates and once we get internet service again we will be able to update it some more. In the next couple of days we should have some more updates and hopefully pictures if you're lucky. First of all, we have moved to a new location. It came up quick, but after much thinking we decided it was the best. We moved to another townhouse, but this one had one more bedroom, a garage, and a fenced yard for Hayden to play. We're really happy with our decision and it will accommodate us until we are ready to purchase a house. If you want the address or directions to our house please text or call, we'd be more than happy to have you come visit. Secondly, today we went to the doctor for Jessica and her midwife said she is dilated to 4cms and after 3 weeks of contractions she is going to deliver the baby tomorrow. It is two weeks early, but the midwife is confident everything will be fine with Tanner when he is born, but she is nervous that if she isn't at the hospital when she goes into labor, she would deliver so fast she wouldn't be able to make it to the hospital. We will show up at the hospital at 9am and she will have one last checkup, and then we will go to the hospital to start the delivery. So, hopefully within the next couple of days we will have pictures and updates of Tanner Morrison Davis.
