Jaylon Daniel is born!!

Jaylon was born at approximately 9am this morning. He weighs 6lbs. 10oz. and is 18 inches long. Because he was born C-section, his oxygen level was a bit low because he still had quite a bit of mucous in his lungs and such, so they moved him to NICU until they get this taken care. It is normal procedure for most babies born C-section. We just want to hold him! *smile* Hopefully, tomorrow will be the day!! Daniel got to hold him as soon as he was born, but Erin hasn't held him yet and I feel badly for her. Her doctor was a Dr. Samuels and he was wonderful! So upbeat and encouraging. Daniel said he sang Christmas carols while he was delivering little Jaylon. Dr. Samuels said Erin should be the poster child for C-section births because she did so wonderfully.

I'm a grandma!! *smile* I can hardly believe it! What a wonderful Christmas present, hm?
Everyone had gone back to check on Erin, so it was just me and Ed at the nursery window watching them tend to little Jaylon and we just looked at eachother and shed a few tears of gratitude and thanksgiving. How blessed of God we are.

I'll keep you posted and will have more pictures to share, I am sure! *smile* The Lord truly is good!
