Not that the boy part comes as a surprise, but he was not scheduled to be born until the 27th. He had other plans. Cooper Martin entered the world at 10:04 p.m. on July 16th. Just in time to make it on his favorite aunt's birthday!!! That would be me!!
Cooper weighed 8 lbs and 4 oz. He was 19 inches long and has the fuzziest soft blonde hair. :) He is doing great and my sister is tired but also doing well. They will get to go home in the morning. I have to finish packing so I can spend time with them next week. My brother in law goes back to work and my mom has until the end of the month until she "semi-retires" so I'm more than happy to help out!!
Here I am holding him for the very first time. We didn't get to hold him until the next morning. They monitored him that first night until the wee hours of the morning because he still had some fluid on his lungs. I guess that can happen with c-section babies. He is doing just great now!
