He has arrived!
It wasn't an easy trip for him or his brave mama,
and he got a bit stuck along the way.
But, thankfully, the competent doctor made some unplanned but most effective moves and his shoulders finally disengaged, followed by the rest of him.
A collective exhalation occurred in that birthing room
when he gasped that first breath, turned from blue to pink, and cried!
All 9 pounds 11 ounces of this hefty newborn boy!
Oh, the wonder of him!
A terrible hush lay heavily in that room when he delayed his first anticipated breath.
The good doctor quietly stated, "He is stunned."
as she swiftly cut the cord and presented him for oxygen.
We now say, "He is Stunning!"
Soft as silk. Warm and snuggly.
Why do I become so inept at finding words for the amazing,
He is the Best of the Best and then some.
He is my newest grandson.
***Please forgive me for taking this picture from Kathleen's blog.
I took a ton of them but they are all on the parents' camera
which happens to still be at the hospital while I am not.
I'll get some of my own once little Ethan comes home.
His sister and I can't wait to have him here with us.
