Vincent's Birthday

I went into labor around 6.30am on a Sunday morning, at 37 weeks and 6 days pregnant. Here are some (tasteful) pictures

Jarrod, a few hours before Vincent was born

I had an oxygen mask because Vincent's heart rate
kept jumping from the 180s down to the 100s (ends up
the umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck AND
torso) but we were both fine.

There he is! Vincent Henry Thomas Ehard was born on
October 26th, 2008 at 7.07pm (me and Jarrod were
married on 07/08 - so it's kind of cool how those numbers
were close). He weighed in at 8lbs. 2oz. and was 20 1/2
inches long - pretty big for being born just before 38

He was screaming his head off the whole time. He
was even louder than Hayden when she was born

Proud Papa. Jarrod was such an active part of the
entire labor and birth. I'm a lucky wife

And a proud, new Grandma

First feeding. He acted like an old pro
