2: On November 21, 2011; I went to work as I normally did. But, today after work I went to the ER to have my blood pressure checked, it was extremely high ranging from the 170's/90's. Mommy was taken to the Maternity Unit & was told she wasn't going home that evening. I called your Daddy & your Papa, Granny & Great Granny. Daddy got off work and got there as soon as he could. Papa, Granny & Great Granny drove down from McCall (we believe in record time) to be with Mommy until Daddy arrived & for your arrival. Many hours passed and although Mommy was progressing, it was clear you liked your current surroundings and did not want to come on your own terms. So, at 7AM on November 23, 2011 it was decided to go get you. The preparations started and Daddy was feeling uneasy. But that subsided once he got something to eat. Once Mommy was prepped in the Operating Room he joined me. It was at 9:07AM that you entered the world at Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center; Boise, ID. Weighing in at 10 lbs.1 oz. & 21 inches long. Mommy & Daddy were so happy to finally see you & hold you. You are a beautiful/handsome baby boy & we love you very much & are happy you are here with us. The first year has been such a joy watching you grow & experience new things. Happy First Birthday!!!
