Finally got more than three seconds to do this. My story isnt too eventful (minus the birth of my first son) but here it is:

So we scheduled the c-section for Monday Dec 5th at 9:00 am. The hospital called a few days before and asked to move it up to 6:00 am We got there and I was having HORRIBLE contractions. The nurses got me all ready and AGAIN, told me how big the baby must be lol. . .
Anyway. . .
They brought me in the OR to do the epidural absolute WORST feeling of my entire pregnancy. When they let my hubby in i told him, "we are waiting a long time to do this again" haha I didnt feel a thing though, no pressure no movement nothing. . .until my doctor said: "sarah, im gonna pull the baby out you'll feel pressure" I felt like a deep breath lol my body relaxed when they pulled him out Then i heard him cry looked at my hubby and we both cried SO hard. They showed me my little boy, which is funny because the lady who brought him up towards my head was really short and skinny and Gary looked HUGE in her arms !
He ended up being 9lbs 4oz 22inches long with lots of dark brown hair ! He was and is absolutely perfect. I tried breastfeeding for three days and it was NOT working he wouldnt latch on at all I was pretty stressed about it until two really awesome supportive nurses talked to us and we just had to decide to stick with the bottle. Other than that Ive healed nicely and feel great (tired) and Baby Gary is adjusting well ! Here are just a few pics because I love showing him off ! lol

Oour first family pic:

Congrats on your lil' man! I am popping in from the Sept PR. I noticed in one of your pictures Gary is wearing a onesie that my LO has, the monkey with bananas. My son just started to be able to wear it though! Congrats again!
