I'm a new auntie!!!

Well, today has been an emotional rollercoaster. My sister-in-law was pregnant and due last Saturday with her first child. She was supposed to be induced today, however her body had other plans. She went into labor before they could start the pitocin. I was unable to make the trip over for the birth so I have been calling every couple hours. First we thought she was making good progress, then she got her epidural, then she made some more progress, then everything stalled, then the big news...c-section! Whew! I myself was an emotional reck today, I can't imagine what it must have been like in that labor room all day. In the end though, everyone is healthy and doing fine. The new addition is Morgan Kemp Wax. He was born around 6 p.m. and was 8 lbs. 10.4 oz., 20.5" long, with a whopping head circumference of 14.5". Surprisingly after some research on Jaiden's size when he was born, I found out that Jaiden had a head circumference of 14.5", 20.5 in long, and 8 lbs. 13 oz. WOW! Almost the same size! Here is Morgan with his proud papa...






Jaiden and I went to the park to keep ourselves occupied today. Here he is on the playground.













Lastly, I took this pic when we went to dinner last night at Red Lobster. I was wearing a new braclet I bought for work and Jaiden is facinated with it. This picture captures his comedic side. What a ham!

Hi, it's Melissa, I was just reading the size comparison and Morgan has a head circumference of 14.5" actually and is 20.5 inches long and weighed in at 8 lbs 10.4 ounces! That is such a funny and strange coincidence.

Although, why is it I had to have the cesarean darn it!? Not fair. :)

Honey, not everybody's got hips like me. It's the Crawford curse (my dad's mom's family). :) She had 14 kids and all naturally! My mom on the other hand couldn't even have me naturally and I was a small baby...so don't feel bad. I'm glad you are both healthy and doing well.
