After much driving and anxiousness I finally made it to the hospital to see "Sam" and the brand spanking new Eli. He is absolutely perfect and more gorgeous than should be legally allowed. Take a looksie for yourself....
I know right?
Look at those lips!!! Mom and Baby are doing well. Recovering from a emergency c-section will not be easy but they will both be fine and up and around in no time.
I cannot even tell you how in love I am with this little guy already. He is alert and strong and feisty when he needs to be. Despite the 25 hours of labor, and the c-section "Sam" was already in full Mom mode. She was born for this.
Welcome to the world Eli! Your mom claims they didn't name you after me, but subconsciously she totally named you after me. Oh the stories I will be able to tell you about me and your Momma. But when you are older, much much older. There is so much to teach you and show you. So many books, so many pieces of art, so much music, and just world to show you. We are going to have so much fun exploring and learning and just wreaking havoc in general.
And don't worry about The Phi. She says she doesn't like babies. And well that is true, but you won't be a baby for long. Once you can play with a hot wheels car you two will be the best of friends.
