First 5 Weeks

On September 9, 2008 at 6:14am we welcomed Rylan Turner to our family. Seeing that I am deathly afraid of needles. I was praying for a quick and easy delivery. It was quick but not so easy. We did not know at the time that he had the umbilical cord wrapped around his neck. When I was told to push, his heart rate dropped dramatically, and my doctor pulled him out. Once he was out, there were no cries except for my own. A couple of minutes passed and we were not sure he was OK. But the wonderful nurses took him and did what they needed to do, and we then heard the sweetest cry.

In celebration of his 5 weeks, here are some of my favorite pictures.
