They had to postpone things awhile because Jennifer and Ava were running a fever. Around 12:30 the doctor said that they needed to go ahead and get her out. He had to use this suction cup device that he put on her head and pulled her out faster. This didn't make for a fun time for Jennifer afterwords. After she was born she stayed in the room for 1 hour with us so that she could nurse and get use to us. She latched on like a pro. After that we went to the nursery so they could warm her up some and do all the final checks. This is when I got to show her off to the waiting party at 1:30 in the morning. Michael and Pam Fry, Terry Gipson, Jeff and Venessa Gipson, and Jake and Amber Gipson. There was so many camera flashes I felt like Brad and Angelia with the paparazzi. Everybody like her name and then most went back to see Jennifer. Jeff and Venessa are leaving for Baltimore today so it was very nice of them to stay. We were glad that they all got to stay and see her come into this world.
Jennifer and I finally got to go to sleep around 4:30 this morning after we changed rooms. The one that we are in now is much nicer and more of a recovery room. Ava is still nursing and doing good. She hasn't slept much but she doesn't cry to much either. She looks around at everything and I think notices when we are around. She is a good baby.
Well I have done my best to keep you informed about our progress in the pregnancy. I hope that you all have been pleased.
Till next time
