The highly anticipated photos!!

Here are a few of my favorites from the big day.

Ready to have the baby. Waiting is the hardest part. We went in at 5:00am and by the time I got all hooked up to the machines and iv's it was about 6:00. My doctor broke my water at about 7:30. I started getting really bad contractions and the epidural came at about 10:30. After that I got a little rest and about 12:15 I could feel really strong pressure like he was halfway out already. The doctor came in and said I could go ahead and push. Two big pushes and his head was out.

Another two pushes and he was here. It went so fast. At 12:31 we welcomed Donevan into the world. He was happy and healthy and started eating right away. I felt great. Tore a tiny bit, but not enough to need stitches. I haven't really been too sore. I guess the body heals faster with the second. Now if I can just get rid of the belly!

Love at first sight.

The adoring parents.

Our first family photo. Iris didn't really want to be around me. She didn't like all the weird things coming out of my arm, and the different place we were in.

Aren't those the cutest little feet you've ever seen?

My handsome little man.

Iris was so funny when she was looking through the window at the nursery. She would smash her face up against it and just laugh. What a goofball!

After his first bath.

The homecoming!
