Andrew Robert is here!

Jason here, as many of you probably know after 36+ hours of labor our "little" boy was born via c-section on Saturday night at 7:31. He was 10 pounds 7 ounces and 22 inches long , he is a bruiser! Both mom and baby are doing well, and we are already back home as the surgery went so well the doctor said we were free to leave whenever we were ready. For anyone who has ever spent time in a hospital you know you want out as soon as possible! That being said the nurses and Doctors at Hudson Hospital in Hudson Wisconsin were an absolute dream. For most of Julie's really hard and un-medicated labor we had a nurse who I will call an angel in scrubs. She was awesome, she stayed with us the whole time and worked so hard to make sure things were going as they should. Unfortunately, after being in labor for so long Julie's body just started to stop working. Her cervix actually went from 9 cm to 5 cm and she just didn't have the energy and strength to continue. At this point our doctor suggested an elective c-section as Julie wasn't able to go any further. And while a c-section is the last thing she wanted, she knew it was the only thing that would get her and the baby out of labor safely. Pictures will follow shortly but I just wanted to get something out there for our readers. As a final note, I have to say I couldn't be prouder of my wonder wife. To watch her go through so much and still keep going was something I will never forget. Her strength and determination were astounding and I feel truly blessed to have her as my wife, and the mother of my children!
