Our Family's New Addition

I can't believe our new baby is finally here. My due date was December 23rd. That day came and went along with Christmas. My Parents came to help me when the baby was born and we started to worry that they would go home without seeing the baby at all. I went to the doctor on New Years Eve in tears. I was soooooo done being pregnant. My doctor told me to come back to the hospital the next evening for some gel to try to get things going and if that didn't help they would give me patocine the following morning. I went for the gel and it gave me really strong contractions. So they decided to keep us overnight so that I didn't have to come back in the middle of the night. So they gave me some medicine to help me sleep and at about 6:00 am on January 2nd I got patocine. I gave birth to a healthy baby boy at 12:01 pm. He is gorgeous. I am so in love I can't even describe the feeling. Our family is so blessed and happy! Here are some more pictures of Christian Alexander Wallace.
