Unlike Sam's older brothers, Sam came according to his 'birth plan', where Stephanie had a planned C-Section. As you may recall, Kai was breech but we didn't find out until Stephanie was in labor and Eli had stopped moving so he was taken 3 weeks early.
On Monday night, no one in our house slept well. The boys had a hard time going to bed and once they finally went to sleep, Stephanie and I were awake most of the night. I gave up at around 2:30 and grabbed a shower. We needed to be at the hospital at 5:30 in the morning, so there were a few contributing factors to our inability to get a restful sleep.
All the way up until we arrived at the hospital, we weren't sure if we liked this whole scheduled c-section idea. Once we had been checked in to the room, did some paperwork, got Stephanie hooked up to some fluids, we started to relax and could see why this scheduled thing was nice.
Another advantage is that its super fast as we arrived at the hospital at 5:30, Stephanie went in for surgery at 7:30 and Sam was born at 7:43.
Here is Kai meeting his baby brother for the first time.

We would like to thank our friends and family for their prayers and support. It was great to have a relatively relaxing delivery. Stephanie has had a great recovery from surgery and Sammy is a super laid back kid.
We'll try to get better at updating this thing as our schedules get a little more predictable.
It came about in due time, after Hannah had conceived, that she gave birth to a son; and she named him Samuel, saying, “Because I have asked him of the Lord.” - 1 Samuel 1:20
