Checking-In at Banner Samaritan, formerly known as Good Samaritan where Jim & I and Jacob & Jamie were born and also where Carly & Brody were born~
Contractions 5 minutes apart, soon after 3 minutes apart which were getting intense, epidural, broke water, immmediatly went to 9, Dr. (Uncle Steve) showed up, 3 pushes & delivery...she was a champ!!
Born August 2, 2012 at 9:38 pm weighing 6 lbs 12 oz & 20" long
Uncle Steve had Jamie pull Brinley out & bring her to her belly. Right from the start Brinley was very alert & was staring at her Mommy for the longest time, it was a sweet moment!
Proud Daddy & Mommy!

I feel very blessed that I was able to once again witness the birth of another Hammond baby. I appreciate so much sharing this special moment with Jamie, Johnny, Jim & my Mom! An unbelieavble experience...and Jamie just smiled through it all!

Smiling at just 8 days old and a little over 6 lbs she looks like Carly, so beautiful!
We were able to have Carly & Brody over for three nights while Johnny & Jamie were at the hospital & were getting settled in. We also got to spend quite a bit of time with the kids in Brinley's first week, as well. We cherish these moments!! Carly was telling us stories about her first day of kindergraden in these pictures. She was so animated it was hard for us to get a picture. She was moving all around the room, I thought she was going to hyper-venalate. You can say her first day of school was a hit!
Brody loves his "Dude Time" with Papa! They share their love for many things, especially the Sun Devils, Brody has the first part of the ASU fight song memorized!!
