GSH Enters The World

Today GSH became part of the Hendricks Family. We went to SHC Hospital at 6am for a scheduled induction. Labor lasted about 10 hours, we pushed for an hour to find out GSH was a little sideways, so we tried some other positions, then pushed for 2 1/2 more hours. Little bugger just didn't want to come out. Around 10:00 pm Dr. decided we had to do a C-Section. Mom was prepped and Dad and Sam dressed in scrubs to head into surgery with her. Moms, Great Grandma, and Auntie came in for hugs and kissed then went back to the waiting room to anxiously await the news...girl or boy.
Here he is - our beautiful baby boy!
9 lbs 1 1/2 oz
22 inches long
A big head (of course, that's why we couldn't get him out)
We were all so excited and happy he was healthy!
