Meet Emerson

This is my nephew Emerson:

Winking ;)

My sister had rough pregnancy and delivery. She was sick most of her pregnancy with morning sickness and colds. Emerson was posterior. They just popped her water in the morning, and she went on her own with no drugs. In the past Terra had a reaction with an epidural. She tries to go all natural. She labored for a long time dilated to 8. Then finally she turned positions and he plopped out before the doctor could get there. Crazy!

All cleaned up! He weighs 5 pounds 15 ounces.
Emerson did very well for having Trisomy 18! He latched on twice with breastfeeding last night. He is a beautiful baby. We will know more today after the ped. doc comes to see him. Last night was all about family, which is what it should be.

The two older rascals are staying with us.
Here I am with my new nephew.

Isaak with his newest boy cousin. "Hold his head Zeek!" We all said!
Mica literally held him for 5 seconds.

Emerson is such a beautiful gift to you all but to me, you can really see what proud parents he has in the photo of Mommy and Daddy holding him.
