Samson Vincent Furlo

Samson was born Dec 22, 2016 at 11:45pm at 5lbs 9oz and 17". As someone noted, he felt like a bag of sugar.

His due date was January 9th! So, as you could imagine, we were a little surprised.

Here's how it went down:
  • 4pm: I finished working for HP for the year. Jessi also started to feel some contractions. We thought they were false because her due date was so far in the future.
  • 6:30pm: I finished working on a project (installing a sun tunnel) and asked Jessi if I could keep working or stop to eat dinner. The contractions were still pretty far apart, but when they happened she couldn't talk to me. I decided to stop working and get Panda Express for the family.
  • 7:30pm: While eating dinner the contractions started to be closer together. We decided to call the doctors to ask. Our advice was to give it an hour, and if we still felt unsure to go to the hospital. It's at this point I started to eat faster.
  • 8pm: We both still needed to shower. Jessi went first and was doing OK when she got out. When I finished, she was on the floor in pain. I suggested she call the babysitter, to which Jessi replied, "I already did!"
  • 8:30pm: We arrived at the hospital and Jessi was already 6cm in size (a little over half way).
  • 11:45pm: Samson was born! In all honesty, we were both in shock with how fast it all happened.
Thank you so much to all of our friends who helped us out!
