He has finally arrived and we are thrilled! Born April 6, 2007 at 10:57pm. Labor was long and hard . . .
If you look closely at Jacob's face, you will notice that he has scabs on his cheeks. Not only was he "sunny-side up", but he was positioned to be delivered nose first! I was in full hard labor for 31 hours . . . there is a reason why it is best to deliver children skull first--it helps things to move along a little faster! His little face got the raw end of the deal. Both Michael and I cried when he was finally born. He looked like he had just survived a battle. We will spare you pictures of the first few hours of his life. I still have a difficult time looking at them. They really were terrible!
I am amazed how Andrew seemed to grow up overnight! He seems ready to be a big brother.
Thanks Danni for coming to our rescue! We don't know what we would have done without you!
