CootieBoy Cole was born at 1:12 p.m. today, Thursday, 8/18. He weighed in at 8 lbs., 5 oz., 19 3/4 inches tall. He is healthy and doing very well. And mama is doing great too.
The c-section went off as planned. We got to the hospital around 11 a.m., went up to the birthing floor, where we were pleasantly surprised and greeted by our Pastor Chris. He waited there for over four hours as Jane went through everything she needed to go through. Chris thank you for your prayers and everything you do for us. As well as everyone at our Skyline family.
The doctors were nice and Jane said she felt no pain this time around. Unlike last time when she felt “everything”!
He doesn’t have much hair, but what he has is red like his sister’s hair when she was born. Too funny.
Jane’s mom, dad and sister drove up from Virginia yesterday and joined us for the joyous occasion. Not sure who’s going back to the hospital tonight, but I’ll be there.
CootieGirl got her first look at CootieBoy outside mama’s belly. She’s not sure what to think of it right now. When I said where’s CootieBoy she still lifted her shirt and pointed to her belly. I corrected her. We’ll see how long it takes for her to catch on. She is in the middle of a bad cough and cold so she won’t be getting near the baby any time soon.
