3: We got to take you home when you were just 1 1/2 days old; what a blessing! | The day you were born was simply glorious for our little family! We had quite the hectic summer waiting for you, but it was all worth it when we got to see and hold you for the first time. After an emergency c-section, you were finally here, and we couldn't be happier! You were born at 8:05pm, and soon after you met your dad first, then big sister, and grandma and grandpa. They couldn't believe how alert you were! You stayed awake just looking at everyone for a couple hours... very unusual for a newborn!
