7lbs 7oz 21in

Our son is finally here! We couldn't be happier! The day was perfect and couldn't have gone any better. Everything was so great it was almost too good to be true. I know you are dying to see some pics so I'll get to his birth story later. I'm posting from the hospital so I am limited on the pics I can download. I'll get some more of his very first minutes up when I get home and can edit a little more.

Waiting patiently to get started.  Some lady decided to try and deliver her baby even though it was breech.  So that made our delivery postponed until she delivered in case they had to do a C-section.  Ugh...I was like, "hello, don't you know that I was planning on meeting my baby today? You're kinda messing up my plans."  Luckily, she was apparently an experienced mother by 3 times and pushed it out safely with one push.  So we were only one hour behind schedule.

The first time I got to touch and hold my baby boy. Sale had already spent the last 40 min with him while I was getting stitched up.  It was so amazing.  He was so quiet as he stared into my eyes for the first time like he knew exactly who I was.  It was so special.

Proud Daddy!

Excited Big Sister holding "baby broder sia" for the first time.

She loves him so much that you really have to keep a close eye on her.  She thinks she knows exactly what she is doing.

Thinking about the next time he gets to eat!

Baby Cooper

Baby Cooper is here! No not my new nephew. Cooper was born March 31st weighing 7 lbs 6oz and 19.5in long. He is soooo cute! He is a very handsome little guy and I'm not just saying that because he is family. :) So far he couldn't be more perfect and Healthy! There hasn't been any signs of the drugs effecting him so everyone was so relieved when he finally arrived.

My little guy is due in exactly 7 days from today! Next wed. May 11th at 7:30 am the c section will begin! This has been the longest 2 weeks of my life and the next few days couldn't come any faster. It will be so fun to have these two guys so close together. They will be exactly 6 weeks apart. My Brother and Sale already have their football future planned out. Everyone is making bets that when our son arrives that Cooper will weigh the same as our newborn. LOL! around 8 or 9 lbs. So far his name will be Isaia pronounced like ee-sy-ah. Its the Samoan version of Isaiah. Not sure on the middle yet. We will keep ya posted!
