A brand new cousin! Got the call around 10pm that they were at the hospital and I could come AND I could bring my camera. Yup, all in and at the perfect time of the night for me too! Well, good thing I left right away because I figured I had at least 2 hours before the baby showed up. Yeah, no. All of a sudden after I arrived Christine was pushing and the baby was crowning. They didn’t even have time to break down the bed, the doctor had on one glove, and they didn’t even have on the big lights (which made the photography difficult at best!) And then there he was! So please excuse the shortness of the slideshow- it was really all that fast! No time for reaction shots even, just got what I could. Oh, and the doctor MADE me take a picture of the placenta (ew. really ew.) but don’t worry, thats not in the slideshow.
How cute is this baby? My new beach buddy (he and I had a long talk at the hospital regarding the summer to come) and so glad I got to hold him within minutes of him being born. That was pretty special.
