Well, it’s my very first Mother’s Day as a mommy, so what better time than now to introduce my sweet little bundle of joy to the world??
Jackson P. Falls made us wait…he was a week overdue when my doctors finally decided to induce labor. We ended up having to have an emergency c-section after 24 hours of labor when Jackson went into distress (his heart beat got over 200!). It turned out to be the right thing, though-not only was he a BIG baby for my little 5’2″ self to deliver, he was also ‘sunny side up’- which meant he was facing forward instead of backward, so the broadest part of his head would have been coming out first. NOT a good situation.
Jay was a real trooper throughout-he even watched the C-section and cut the umbilical cord! He was amazing, and he is an amazing, incredible daddy to our sweet little boy! Life couldn’t possibly be sweeter right now!
Anyway…..Meet Jackson…. 9 pounds, 1.1 oz, 22 inches, born Monday, April 18, 2011 at 10:06 pm.
