Posing for pictures in the parking garage of the hospital
At 7pm we were all checked into the delivery suite ready for the action to start
6 hours into labor and Mom is still smiling
Here is my heartbeat and contraction pattern
After hours of labor and pushing I was stuck and not making enough progress. Mom's temp was rising and my heart rate was too fast so the doctor said I would have to be delivered by c-section
My first picture with our amazing OB GYN Dr. Sinicori. I was 7 lbs 12 oz, 21 inches long and born at 7:18am.
Our first family photo
While I was the only one born that night there were a lot born the day before so there were a bunch of other babies in the nursery that morning.
After a few hours Mom was finally able to hold me in her arms and it was a long time before she put me down or let anyone else hold me.
Aunt Barry was my first visitor
Grandma Smith jumped on the first flight when she heard that Mom was in labor and arrived before I was 8 hours old
It wasn't hard for me to make this guy smile :)
Dad got initiated into the poopy diaper club right away
Me with Mom and Grandma and Grandpa
There is no other place I want to be
I opened my eyes and saw my beautiful Mom for the first time
I like to hold one arm up by my face
I love my Mom so very much
Most of the time I am quiet as a mouse
And once in a while I let everyone know that I'm here
