Sweet Baby Christian

The first picture is me, taken today, 29 weeks pregnant. I took this before we headed to the hospital. Danny and Jolene had a bit of a surprise yesterday (August 23rd) when Christian decided to make his arrival 3 1/2 weeks early. Jolene was at work and started having contractions. She decided to go home and labor for a while there before heading to the hospital. Things progressed very quickly and by the time she got to the hospital she was already 7 cm dilated. They quickly discovered that Christian was breech (he had not been just a few days previous), and so they had to do an emergency C-section. All went well and little Christian was born just before 7:00 p.m. He was 6 lbs. 2 oz, and 19.5 inches long. He has some dark hair and looks just perfect. He is a really cute baby. We got to go see them today and Jolene is doing well....tired, and in pain from the C-section, but on her way to recovery. Now they just have to close escrow on their house (hopefully on Sept. 10th) and get move into it! I look forward to getting to know little Christian even better in the coming weeks and months. It makes me even more excited to meet my own little baby :)

Looking up at Daddy.

Ahhhh, what a sweet baby :) He is going to get lots of love between his very excited mom and dad, both of his first time grandmas, his aunts and uncles, and from Uncle Matt and Aunt Jess :)
