Samuel is Here!
I'm still kind of in awe of it all, but ....  holy cow..  Samuel Jason Jones has arrived!

We got into the car around 4:30pm after Sarah had been in labor since around 6:00am.  Wow... What a trooper.

We arrived here at the hospital at 5:00pm anticipating his arrival around 10:00pm or so...  Yeah right...  Samuel had other plans.

He was born at 6:43pm today, October 5th, 2008.  He was 8 lbs, 7oz - 19 inches long.  Amazing...

As usual, Sarah refused all drugs, no epidural, and went through the labor like a friggin' warrior.  Yup...  She's my girl.

Anyway... I'll spare you the blabbering, and as soon as I get the pictures (which should be just a few hours, I forgot the cable for my camera to download the pictures!) I'll post them.  I also got a video or two, so... Look for those, too.

Anyway...  I can't say enough about how wonderful my amazing wife is.

While holding Samuel at about 10 minutes old, I was just amazed at the little turkey, and the connection I felt.  I actually teared up a bit at what I felt.

I'm not sure what that all means, but man...  I sure do love this little guy.

Anyway... Look for pictures in the near future.

Update: Due to Chloe's fore-thought, she brought a camera with a cable, so I now have pictures!  Here ya go!











Thanks again, Chloe!

There are more photos and a video sure to come.

Welcome to our family, Samuel!

Congratulations you two. Even though Samuel is bruised he is still darling and we wish you two the best. What a darling family. We think grandma's and grandpa's must be very proud and deservedly so. Love the Lawrences.
