Haden Ryker Cluff

Our third child has FINALLY arrived and completed our family!! Haden Ryker Cluff was born on Tuesday November 23 at 7:07 pm - just as the first big blizzard of the season was winding down!! We stayed Monday night in Logan, not knowing when the hospital would call me for my induction. We got to the hospital at about 12:30 pm, pitocin started around 2pm and after some serious 9 lb. 6 oz, 19.5" baby boy was out!! Tyson and my doctor delivered him, that was really cool!! My mom was able to be in the room with us too and that was wonderful to have her there. He is a mix of both Ry and B, with hair much like Riley's!

Very ready and excited to get labor going! I knew the baby was big, because he felt BIG, just didn't think he was quite so big!!
Mom kept everyone up to date for us!
Lots of contractions, time to push. One word - EPIDURAL - can honestly say I did not feel much pain at all for the whole thing!
Tyson A. Cluff, PA-C and proud father. He said it was a truly amazing experience! Thanks Dr. Blackett!! They did awesome!My mom manned the camera for us, since Ty was busy!! She got some great pictures!!
I was pretty emotional, knowing that this is the last time and all. I am so grateful that everything went as smoothly as it did and that Haden is strong and healthy! We are so very blessed!
