Photo Anthology - #2 @ Birth

Age - 10 Minutes
Just before this photo, Mom spent 28 hours in labor, the last four hours pushing (he was wedged due to his left hand being held obstinately up by his face)... the delivery team was concerned about the stress he was enduing during pushing, but his heart rate was steady. Though his face was covered in vernex, his skin a purple hue, and his motions terribly awkward, he was, unquestionably, more beautiful than we could have ever imagined.

And, to Mom, Grammy, Grandma, and Nana, a very Happy Mother's Day!
