Justin Joshua Volmer

Right before heading in.
Minutes after our boy was born.

I realize I stink at blogging. This, however I figured was a good reason to post.

We had our sweet baby boy on Friday Oct. 16th at 7:57 p.m. He was 9 lbs 11 oz and 22 3/4".
Here is the boring (very short version) story if you care.
We had a planed C-section for Tuesday the 20th but we went to the doctor on Friday and I was having contractions 2 minutes apart. I was not dialated at all and my cervix was still so high we were worried my water would break over the weekend and it would turn into an emergency situation so we rushed to the hospital and had him a few days early!! The surgery went well and we escaped with very minor complications. We were shocked he was so small but we love having a baby that can wear the smaller clothes and diapers at birth. We debated on a name for the 3 days we were in the hospital and Justin wasn't even on our list, but it fits him and we like it.
He is such a good baby, has hardly cried at all and like Eliza sleeps through the night!! I am so lucky but we will see if it lasts. Eliza is a good big sister, loves to hold, kiss, and "wrestle" her brother. She is helpful and is constanly telling Justin she loves him. We are so glad he is finally here and so thankful for him and his safe arrival!!

Congratulations. He's darling. We'll be in Kennewick for Christmas, maybe we can see him then. Boring labor stories are a good thing, right?

I like the name Justin. He is smaller but still oh so cute. I think he too likes like an Anglesey, don't you? Congrats! Hope you recover well.

Happy news! You are so funny... I hold the record in Brandon's family for Braeden at 9 lbs. 2 oz. Your mother just made it seem normal to you to have 12 lb. babies! I am so glad it all went well! Congratulations to you all!
