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!!
