Here he is!

11:38 PM

While Steve was in Brazil we had our baby!  He was born July 19th ( 2 weeks early) and weighed 7 pounds, 12 ounces.  Labor went well and 5 hours after my 22 year old brother drove me to the hospital we had a healthy baby boy!  I think my poor brother aged about 5 years that day, but he was great and so was the rest of my family, within an hour and a half of arriving at the hospital I had my family there with me.

Steve was extremely sad to miss this event and kept telling me how sorry he was and how much he wished he were with me...needless to say Steve came home Monday morning to a brand new baby.  The reunion was so sweet and he and baby bonded immediately.

  6. I was 2 weeks early! Ha! I was just in shock...I remember thinking okay, he's coming so I need to just do it without Steve and the kids (they were in Oregon at a family reunion). The hardest part was calling Steve in Brazil and listening to him cry. :(

    Oh and we named him Henry. :) It was going to be Oliver and we looked at him and Steve and I both said, he's Henry. :) Max calls him Hank the tank.
