Happy Birthday Sawyer

Meet Sawyer Reed Cline

We were walking into Joran Valley hospital at about 4:15 am and J's best friend called and said that they were already in the hospital because she went into labor and they had been there for about an hour or so. Sawyer wanted to come regardless. We went upstairs and J and her best friend Kcee were in there. She was having contractions every minute or two. The Anethstesiologist walked in and we got the best news. J asked him if it was ok that we were in the C-Section room and then her best friend walk in right when they pulled Sawyer out. He said that he didnt care if we were all in there so all 3 of us were in there the whole time.  

Doesn's Shai look sexy!

The C-Section was one incredible experience. With where I was sitting I was able to watch most of the procedure. It is incredible what the doctors do and how quickly too. Dr. Dinger showed up precisely  at 6:30 am. They prepped the operating room and he was born at 6:51 am. It was amazing how fast it was. Right before he was born they said here comes his head. We all stood up and there he was. He immediatly started crying. I thought hearing his heart beat at all of J's appointment was the best sound in the world. I will be the first to tell you I could not have been more wrong. That little scream immediatly brought tears to Shaileen's and my eyes. He was taken over to the washing station and they cleaned him all up. He cryed for the first minute or so but after that he was pretty calm with a wimper every little bit.

He weighed in at 8 lbs 1.2 oz and is 19 1/2 inches long.

His feet were just as big and long as we expected from looking at all of the sonograms!

As soon as they were done cleaning him they wrapped him up just like a little burrito and handed Sawyer to Shaileen. She is and has been in heaven the past day and a half so far. She just keeps saying how absolutely perfect he is. She is going to be a great Momma.

Sawyer has some big huge lips with a dimple on his chin

This is one of my favorie photos that was taken yesterday. It is J holding hands. It is such a simple photo but with so much meaning. We have a bunch more photos with J in it but we will keep those for Sawyer and us.

I was given the opportunity to bathe Sawyer for the first time. He is such a trooper. He wimpered for the first 30 seconds and then loved every second after. Especially when we washed his hair...
