Congrats to F4 Coaches Garry and Mary on the arrival of their second son on October 29th!
Garry, Mary & Nicholas want to welcome the newest member of the Denver Roseman (and FastForward) family:
Parker James Roseman!
Ø Born 10/29/10 @ 4:07 AM
Ø Weight = 6’7”
Ø Height = 19”
Mary wakes Garry @12:45. “I think I’m having contractions”…Garry’s wide awake in seconds. He finds the iphone and surprises Mary with the contraction timer application (thanks Gigi). Some last minute packing and “to do’s”. A phone call to our friends the Campbells to come watch Nicholas. Then a call to the hospital to tell them we were on the way. We were on the road by 3:04am. Mary’s water breaks on Hampden as we cross I25. Garry runs the red light for the entrance ramp, then with contractions getting stronger we drive faster. Until Arapahoe and I25…at which point we get pulled over – presumably for speeding but it never came up in our conversation with the officer. He gave us a guided tour south on I25 right to Sky Ridge Emergency Room. With the car still running the police officer and Garry help Mary from the car and straight into the reception area. ~3:20, we have to “sign in” and before 3:30 the nurse is running down the hall with Mary in the wheelchair. Seated in a somewhat uncomfortable position Mary coaches the nurse to move faster.
At ~3:35 they call the floor Dr. because our OB is not going to make it in time. Garry and the nurse help Mary breath through the first couple contractions in the delivery room before the Dr. enters. “It’s time to push” Dr. says and at 4:07AM, about 5 pushes later, Parker James Roseman arrives.
We have had a Halloween homecoming…Mom, Garry, Nicholas, Parker and Grandma Joan handed out candy and even went trick-or-treating.
Here are a couple photo’s…
What an AMAZING couple days.
