Henry Boyce Chambers 9-12-09

Well we did it.
He's here, after all the waiting and anticipation.
He is perfect!

It was about a 10 hour labor. My water broke at 8am Sept 11th. I wasnt having hard contractions so after I called Eli to come home, we just waited at home. Eli's mom came by to wait with us. We ended up going to the Dr.'s office at about 3:30 to get checked out, because when my water broke it was just trickling out so they confirmed that it was my water that broke. We went to the hospital after that. I started having hard contractions at 2am and had him at 10:52am Saturday September 12th 2009. I did it all natural:)
I can tell you more details later. I wanted to post some pictures so you all could see him.
We love him so much.
My mom and dad came down and my mom is getting to stay for the week.
I do have to say I couldnt have done it without my mom and Eli's mom Mary...they are truly amazing nuturing women...No words can describe my gratitude and love!! And now I have this new respect for them and all women.
Anyway I feel like I could talk about alot of differnt things, but I really need to get some rest.
But here is what is happening now:

He has been staying in the nursery since last night at about 10:30 because his oxygen level was a little lower than they want it to be.
Now he has been off it since 9:30 this morning and has been doing well, but now he is on antibotics they are lowering his dosage but want to watch him until at least Tuesday morning probably. He also has a little jaundice. He is doing well they are just taking precautions and I'm glad.

Thank you for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers.
Beth-Eli- Henry

I'm so excited I can barely stand it!! Maybe cause I'm having a boy in just a couple more months! He absolutely gorgeous! I'm sure daddy is in love too!
Take it all in...everyone one tells you it flies by and it really does with your first especially. I remember Avalon's birth like it was yesterday and she just turned 3!!
