04a - Memphis - First photos

First photos of Memphis
Update Sunday (April 13) 9 pm.  Christina, Aaron, and Memphis are expected to come home from the hospital sometime tomorrow and then she'll be able to communicate with you.  Here's the overhead our church used this morning.

At 6:37 pm on April 12th after 35 hours in the hospital and 31 hours on pitocin, 17 hours after having an epidural and 3 1/2 hours of pushing Memphis was finally brought into this world using vacuum extraction (to avoid a c-section).  Once they used the vacuum he came in the first contraction (around push 6).  It was a very long 2 days and we wondered if he would ever come.  He weighs 9 pounds and 2 ounces and is 19 3/4" long.  We are so, so excited!
Thank you everyone for all of your prayers!
The proud, exhausted parents!!

Congrats from Aunt Nancy and Uncle Dan!  That is the plumpest and most peaceful baby I ever saw!  He doesn't seem bothered by the 35 hour ordeal.  And what great lips!  He's sure to be a great clarinet player!

Memphis sure is a cutie!  What perserverance!  I guess I'm a fourth cousin or something
and my mom a great, great aunt.  Anyway, I know we'll just love him.  I'm so happy for you!  Love, Jane

I was just comparing Memphis and Epes at one day, Epes looks so skinny now.
