Happy Sunday everyone. For some reason I got up at 5:30 yesterday morning which is about 1hr 1/2 earlier then I normally wake up on a Saturday. However, it wasn't much longer that my daughter woke up in labor. We thought we were going to have a baby a couple of days ago but it turned out to be false labor. Saturday was the real deal though. I am just happy that Daddy got here in time to see his son brought into this world. My daughter was so worried that he was going to miss the birth of their baby. You see his lives in Texas and she moved back home in December to be with me so she would have 24/7 support during her pregnancy. I am glad she did.
So yesterday my daughter came to me about 6:30 and said she was in major pain. I asked how far apart the contractions were and she said about 4 minutes apart. I told her that the doctor said until they were 2 minutes apart and she couldn't do anything between them then we could take her back to the hospital. So at 7:30 she couldn't take it any longer. She was miserable, in pain and they were coming faster and harder then before. So I jumped in the shower and headed to the hospital.
We got there in 13 minutes. Thank goodness there wasn't alot of traffic at that time of the morning and we were able to take the back roads and avoid any major issues. So we get there and I was so afraid they were going to send her home again. But they didn't. They checked her and said "we are having a baby". We were all relieved that they weren't sending us back home. So they moved her into her room for the big event and then me, daddy and my sister in law Kisha started taking bets on when he would be born. Well I said 1:00, daddy said 2:30 and Kisha said the 4 o'clock hour. She was right. At 4:13 p.m. we welcomed baby Christian into the world. He weighed in at 7lb 2.6 oz with a head full of hair. He was perfect. He had 10 fingers, 10 toes, 2 eyes, a mouth and a nose with two perfectly shaped ears. Absolutely perfect!!!!!!!!!!!!
I cried as soon as he was born because I mean seriously how can you not??? My daughter cried as well and then she looked at me and said "I just had a baby". My heart melted and as I was still teary eyed and said "yes baby, yes you did and he is perfect".
Of course I immediately grabbed my cell phone and started snapping pictures. I will be doing alot more pictures once they are out of the hospital and sharing with you all when I do so be sure to check back soon to see our newest arrival. But for now I wanted to share just a few and I recorded him getting checked out and him crying but not real sure how to put that on here. But I will figure it out eventually. SO here are some more pictures for you to see this precious perfect gift from God. I hope you enjoy.
As you can see we have one happy Momma and Daddy. I am so proud of my daughter. She was a champ when it came time for action.
Congratulations Victoria and Richie. Your baby is absolutely Perfect and Beautiful not that I am bias or anything!!!! I am so proud of you both.
