Our Favorite Valentine

Bryson Adam Douglass was born on 2/13 at 11:22 a.m. He weighed in at 7 lbs. 12.9 oz. and was 19.1 inches long.

We went in to the hospital at 9:00 a.m. on a scheduled appointment because we had learned the week before that Bryson was breech. The plan was to try and turn him in hopes that we would be able to deliver him naturally. The doctor came in at 10:40 to turn the baby. That only lasted a few minutes because they turned him and his heart rate dropped dramatically. He then turned back breech. Because the doctor thought this might happen, they had already prepared the Operating room for a c-section and at 11:22 a.m. we were the proud parents of a beautiful little boy.

Mom, Dad, and Bryson are all doing good (but tired). Here are some photos. We'll have more soon.

Congrats! My daughter was breech, but they were able to turn her, so I didn't have to have a C-Section.
He is so cute! You will love being a mom. Just remember to sleep when he sleeps, the housework can wait.
