Baby Behemoth Shatters Tates Creek Ward Weight Record

Hi everybody! This morning Amber was induced via pitocin injections. This is her lovely face in the morning as she was being prepped.


After nearly 13 hours of labor, Gregory Scott Dickens was born at 9:14pm on August 26, 2008. Weighing in at 10 lbs. 9.7 oz., Greg the "Giant" surprised everybody with his mass. Even the Anesthesiologist next standing next to Noel remarked, "Holly shnikies...That baby is huge."


Stay posted over the next couple of days as we adjust to the newest addition of the Dicken's family and update the blog with fun pictures and stories.

Congrats! Congrats! Congrats! We can't wait to meet the "big" guy!! Amber was holding out on us because she wanted to make sure a record was broken. . . Sure going late wasn't planned. . .

haha... You are quite the woman Amber... I seriously bow to your superiority- I cannot believe you seriously birthed a 10lb 10oz baby. Josh told me this morning that I'm supposed to try to outdo you... but I surely hope not! You are amazing! We are so happy he is here and that you are both healthy! Congrats Congrats Congrats!! Wish we lived closer!
