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!
