Introducing...

Our new SON!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It really is true.

Kapaun Joseph Mary Boever
8 lbs. 13.7 oz.
Born Wednesday, September 18, 2013
2:17 PM
His first name is pronounced K-Pin.  He is named after Emil Kapaun, a priest whom we read about this summer.

He has an wonderful story to tell about his labor and delivery.  We arrived at the hospital at 1:30 PM and he was born 47 minutes later.  I went to my regularly scheduled doctor's appointment that morning and was dilated to 5 centimeters.  My intention was to wait until that evening as I usually labor very slowly.  Kapaun had different plans.  I called John around 1:00 and said that contractions had really picked up and were painful.  We headed to the hospital and found I was dilated to 7 centimeters.  I walked the hall twice and felt so much pain so I headed into my room where I knelt beside the bed.  I wasn't intending him to be born on the floor, but everything happened so fast and within minutes I felt so much pressure and pushed once and he was born.  It was really fast and amazing.  Then, they handed him to John who was standing behind me on the floor and I heard, "Lindsay, It's a BOY.  It's a BOY."  They told me I said "Really?" one hundred times.
I want to write more details later, but wanted to document a little of our first few moments with our new son.

  1. Congratulations! How exciting to have another boy in the house! I'm a little jealous of the quick labor, but I'm sure it was really intense.

  6. Hooooray! Congrats to your family! We love that name around here; weve had a huge devotion to him since we dated... and were married at Fr. Kapauns small hometown parish in Pilsen! My hubby's great-aunt grew up with him. What a good man you will raise if he's named after him. Beautiful beautiful.

  17. CONGRATULATIONS!!!! HIs brother must be so happy! My Maggie was born 33 minutes after we got to the hospital, only 2 hours after the first contraction. It's such an intense way to labor, but you don't feel exhausted after. Good for you!
