The birth of our son

We welcome with love, our son, Tyler Samuel Eaton.  He came into this world on April 24th at 2:06PM.  Tyler was born weighing 7 pounds, 12 ounces and was 20.5 inches in length.  He has blond hair, blue eyes, long little fingers and tiny little feet.

Our birth experience was all we could have hoped for … it was truly amazing.   The midwife, doctor and my husband were absolutely fabulous.  Tyler and I couldn’t have done it without them.   I’m thankful that labor lasted two hours and thirteen minutes (not that I was counting or anything).   I’m also very thankful for all my friends and family who supported me through changing doctors at 24 weeks and trusting my gut that we could have a wonderful birth with the right preparation.

Sabrina loves her little brother and wants to constantly help and be near him.  She nurses her baby doll while we nurse, she wants to change his diaper by herself and is ready to start swaddling him without assistance.  Needless to say, we’re exhausted.
