On August 29, 2012, God gave us the greatest blessing we could ever be blessed with. James Bedsole Wallace was born at 5:24 p.m. weighing 8 pounds 2 oz and measuring 20.5 inches long. We were instantly in love with him and his cute little chubby cheeks.
Labor went pretty well with only a few minor blood pressure issues. Also, after about an hour of pushing, I may or may not have told the nurses off. Starting about ten minutes into it, they were telling me "he's almost here, only a few more pushes!" Well, an hour later I yelled "You said that an hour and 20 pushes ago!". Ooops...
Here are some pictures from the best part of the day...
I wonder what he was thinking?
The beautiful view from our room the night James was born.
I couldn't hold James for about 3 hours after he was born due to his temperature being too low. He was put under a warming lamp for a while. Here is a pic from the first time I held him in my arms.
The proud Daddy
The first-time grandparents
And finally, the happy family of three!
