Ryan Matthew was born at 3:06 AM in the Provo hospital on April 8th, 2004.
He weighed in at 6 lbs, 4 oz. Mom and Dad went to the hospital at 8:00 PM on April 7th because the contractions
were getting started. Since Lori has a history of having babies
fast they wasted no time in getting to the hospital. As soon as they arrived, however,
the contractions stopped. Lori started rigorously walking
around the room and the sporadic contractions began again. After two hours of
walking the room they began to come more regularly and with greater intensity.
At midnight she received a little medical relief and was able to lay
quietly for a couple of hours while baby Ryan struggled to enter the world.
A few hours later just after 3:00 AM out came Ryan Matthew, now the youngest of five White children.
