Day 1 - A new Journey (Brayden Christopher Arrived!)














It was a different night to say the least. Around 9:15pm Tabitha asked me to rub her back and uh oh! Water broke. We began are preparations to get to the Hospital. After checking in and getting settled we look at the clock and it is going on 11 pm. Tabitha is doing great. We start to see more and more contractions. Steady progress up until 1:15am and then Tabitha said "It is time". The Midwife gathered close to monitor and away we went. Within minutes Tabitha was pushing and pushing and out comes this crying baby boy I have waited so long to see. I reach down and grab him by the shoulders and Tabitha assists and he goes right to mommy. WOW! Such a sight to see. He stayed with mommy for a bit and then I got to take him and talk to my new son. After some quick check ups it was back to mommy and cuddle time and first time eating in this world. So I quickly thought of eating as well. I ran out to the dark night around 3:30am hoping to find some salvation as it pertains to getting my wife some much needed food. LUCKILY the GOLDEN ARCHES appeared. LOL. So I grab a breakfast sandwich and continue on back to the Hospital to give food to my family. Arriving back we enjoy some more time and now it is time for first bath.
Thus the first pictures so far. Many more to come in near future.
