3.0 kg (6 lbs. 9 oz.)
51 cm long (20 in.)
Born in Guaymas, Sonora, Mexico
We had an amazing experience birthing our first child! I will have to post the details in the next blog, but I wanted to put up a few pictures for now while Daddy is holding Ethan and I have a 15 minute break.
Baby Ethan was born naturally without any medications, as we had hoped for! The doctors and nurses were wonderful and attentive. They allowed both M. and our translator/labor support friend into the delivery room without any hassles, praise God! After only 6 1/2 hours of labor, our sweet angel was brought into this world – healthy and beautiful and very alert. We stayed overnight in the hospital and were released in the morning. We are now home, enjoying our time together.
Thank you for your prayers and words of encouragement!
