Try, try, and try again...He's HERE!!

Sawyer Robert Stephenson was born March 4, 2010 at 7:13pm weighing 8 lbs 3 oz and 21 inches long. He is healthy and beautiful, and that is what we wanted most! We know we are in for it in the future though, he’s a bit stubborn. I was hoping to go natural and have his birth be calm and enjoyable…well, as enjoyable as childbirth can be. But as we all know, things don’t always go as we want them to. After 17 hours of laboring naturally, a failed attempt at a vacuum extraction, and labor finally ending in a C-section
Sawyer Robert Stephenson was born into the world. Turns out he just wanted to look at the stars! Little stinker. That's why I look like I've been hit by a Mac truck in all of the pictures...turns out I practically was. It’s a good thing he’s absolutely adorable or else he would be in serious trouble:). He had to spend quite a few hours under the blue lights to get rid of a slight case of jaundice,
but he is quickly overcoming that. It took him a while to figure out how to eat but he is now catching on real quick to that too!
We came home from the hospital on the 8th and since then have been trying to learn a whole new schedule to life. But, we sure love him and are glad to have him home with us now. Thanks everyone for your phone calls, texts, and prayers. We really appreciate having such great friends and families! We feel supremely blessed!
