New Baby

I finally came but mom and dad thought the day would never come. Dad had hopes of an April fools baby but that day came and went. Mom hoped of having me on my due date, April 4th, but that also came and went. The doctors told mom they would induce her on April 10th if I hadn't come by then.
So mom and dad waited yet another week. Mom went to see the doctor on April 9th to make sure everything was going okay, it was, and the doctor told her he'd see her in the morning to begin the induction process. However she surprised him with a phone call at 2:00pm that afternoon because she had been have steady contractions. He told her to wait it out and to call when she couldn't talk through the contractions.

So mommy waited another 4 and half hours. Dad arrived home at 6:30pm and by 8:00pm they were on there way to the hospital. Once they arrived they rushed through paper work and mom got hooked up to all the machines. Dad was a great labor coach, he helped mommy focus on slowing down her breathing through each painful contraction and he let her squeeze all the blood from his hand.

The anesthesiologist arrived around 9:15pm and gave mommy her much wanted epidural. Finally my parents were able to get a little sleep but not for long because suddenly at 12:50am mom was calling for the nurse. I was coming! My mom pushed for 30minutes before I made my grand entrance.

I, Jamen Wesley Quast, entered the world at 1:26am April 1o, 2008. I weighed 7 lbs 6 oz and am 19 3/4 inches long. I have a little dark hair on my head and have dark colored eyes. Mom and Dad can't decide who I look like, what do you think?
