Augustus John Martin Stapleton entered the world today. He was born at 10:53 AM via c-section. He is weighing in at 8lbs, 11oz and is 20" long. He is a healthy, beautiful little boy. We are beyond excited and we are head over heels in love with Gus.
I got to go into the c-section today for Gus' birth. Unfortunately I had to leave the room twice since I felt so lightheaded...but J did great. She was such a trooper. I felt bad that I couldn't even handle sitting next to her and here she was going through major surgery.
We were lucky that the hospital had an extra room for us to spend the day in. Unfortunately, we were not allowed to spend the night. And FYI, yes, I am devastated by that but I am trying to put a positive spin on it right now. At least I will get once last night to try to sleep through the night. Plus we left just before his cirucumcision...I am sure that he is pretty angry about that procedure. We get to go back in the morning. We hope that we are able to bring him home tomorrow. There has been talk that he might have to stay the same amount of time as J. Since she had a c-section she has to stay a couple of days. We will find out for sure tomorrow.
Please keep praying for us. We are not out of the woods for another 7 months when the adoption becomes final. We originally started this blog to record the adoption process that we were going through, but we will continue to post updates as Gus grows up.
I'm going to crash since I want to be up bright and early to go get my son. AHH!!! I'm a MOMMY!!!
