Baby Branston is here!



Well if I thought my anxiety was bad last night...it was nothing compared to this morning! For those women who prefer c-sections, more power to ya, but I cannot for the life of me figure out why lol. Seriously I'm in so much more pain than my other two. And that to me was just creepy feeling like someone is rearranging your insides! It took quite a bit longer than I thought it would. On TV it always looks like such a quick procedure. But... once I heard little Branston's cute little cry all was ok :-)
He was born at 11:24 this morning weighing 6lbs 14oz. I don't even know his length! They rushed him away before I could see him but then brought him to me about an hour later so I could see him before they took him over to Primary's. He seemed so uncomfortable with all the tubes down his throat, in his veins and in his nose. I felt so bad that I couldn't comfort the poor little honey :-( I felt so much better when we (Jared, Taysen, Braylee, my parents & His mom & Bro) to see Branston at the NICU & Primary Childrens and he was sleeping peacefully. He looked all comfy with a soft blanky under him. I was just so worried he'd be uncomfortable the whole time. Anyways, he's doing really well and I just can't wait until we can take him home :-) We don't know how long it will be yet but I'm just so thankful that he's here and healthy and doing so well!

Leandra - he is absolutely beautiful!! I hope everything goes smooth and he comes home soon! Take care of yourself, just take it one day at a time. I promise it will get easier. Get lots of rest, you are going to need it! No stairs, no vaccuum, and try not to stand up to straight at first... that always made my stitches tear a bit!
