It’s been a busy month and I haven’t had time to update my blog, so here we go..

I was at work when I got the 2am call, your mother was at the emergency room and due to toxemia, they were going to do an emergency c-section.

I was in a panic, I didn’t have relief, our bags were not really ready, you were coming almost 2 weeks early. I finally got in touch with someone to come in and work for me. They arrived and I set out to the hospital. I had always imagined rushing to the hospital in the early hours in my Porsche or Corvette, however now that I would rather be a dad than have all my toys, I had the rubber band of my little Ford Fusion stretched real tight. I made it to the hospital in about 18 minutes, I hit all green lights on the way in.

We had to wait a little longer than expected, the doctors and anesthesiologist were a bit scatterbrained that morning. We finally rolled to the operating room, it took them 5 or 6 attempts to start the epidural on your mom.

When they came and got me, the procedure had already started. I turned my camera on and started filming. Once you came out they held you up and your mom and I were both in tears, you were PERFECT, a spitting image of your sister. They weighed you at a whopping 9lbs 11oz or roughly 37 American Kestrels. You barely cried, you entered the world with dark blue eyes, and just gazed around at everything going on. You laid on your moms chest as they closed her up.

Over the last few weeks you have grow in leaps and bounds, +3”, +3.5lbs, 99th percentile in growth. You are moving your head and holding your bottle with some assist. You love to be held(by your mother). She rocks you all the time, you’re rather spoiled… Just as you should be.

Lou loves you too, she sits and rocks or loves on you all the time, she is very protective of her little brother…

Your paw Hardy passed away the week before you were born, he wanted to meet you so bad, he loved his grand/great grand babies.

Kope, your mom and I love you, and I hope you will enjoy reading the stories as you grow up.

 

-Love Dad
