But I swear I have a really great excuse... I had a gorgeous baby boy.
(warning, this is a pretty long post - but so worth it.)
Our amazing son Jordan was born a week late on June 30th, 2010.
After lots of doctor appointments going back and forth with our group of doctors trying to decide if our baby was "too big for me" , they decided to let me go naturally (and not schedule the c-section they had thought I might need).I felt like I was pregnant forever and got to be pretty huge. At our last appointment on June 29th, they sprung the news on us that we were going in to the hospital that night to have our baby (I have goosebumps just thinking about it). So we went in at 9pm that night, (painful) contractions started right away and I progressed through the night. Then, again - I progressed slowly through the day. By the time 8pm rolled around the next night they ended up having to put me on oxygen and started flipping be back and forth since the baby's heart rate was doing some funny things. After 3 more hours, he had clearly stopped progressing , and his heart rate was not able to get back to normal. At about that time our amazing friend Molly was there to start our birth photos - and a few minutes later the doctor came in to tell us he was not coming the way we had hoped, but that in 20 minutes or so we would be meeting our little man via c-section. At that point we were ready for what ever plan God had for us, and just wanted a healthy baby.
At 10:47pm Jordan was born, and he was perfect.
So we were not able to get the actual "birth pictures" that we had planned for, but I would say that these are just as amazing. Molly, thank you so so much for coming , praying , and just being such a great friend to us. We are forever thankful for these beautiful pictures!!
(you can check out Molly's super sweet post here).
Absolutely IN LOVE with this picture! :)
Molly , you are such an amazing friend! Again, we are soooo thankful!
and a few we have taken since we got home...
He has changed so much from week to week!
Jordan makes the best faces ever! Love him!
We are just so in love with him and can't believe that he is already a month old! We feel truly blessed to have each day that God has given us with our precious little boy, and cant wait to enjoy him and all of the exciting moments to come!
So I will break up the Jordan love into a couple posts, coming up soon will be our first family pictures (that I just love to pieces!).
