We can't believe it! Our little boy is FINALLY here. I say finally, because, of course, he made us wait a week past his due date to come...and that was only because they scheduled his delivery. Otherwise, I don't know if he would have ever decided to leave his comfy home of 9 months! Sharpe Scott Hartsell came on Monday at 11:26am and weighed 8 lbs and 13 oz and was 21.5 inches long.
After having contractions for over 24 hours, I was admitted for my induction Sunday night which led to an un-planned C section on Monday morning. All that to say, I have not been able to be as up and about as I had originally thought. My grand ideas of all the photos I was going to take was definitely hindered by the fact that I was #1, completely and utterly exhausted from being up for two nights in a row before having him...and #2, that I couldn't even leave the bed for the first 12 hours of his life. We(Joe) did take TONS of HD video that we are going to put together which I am really excited about, but my job was the still shots, and honestly that many just didn't happen at the hospital and since being home I have been on pain and baby management. We hope to have his official newborn photo shoot sometime in the next day though since the weather is going to be so mild and I am finally feeling a little more normal.
For now, here is one shot I did get in the hospital. I can't wait to take more where you can see his little face better. He is just so cute! We are completely taken with our little Sharpe and are so thankful to the Lord for a healthy and happy baby boy. Thank you to everyone who has supported, encouraged and celebrated with us. We are so blessed to have so many wonderful people in our lives that care about us and it means SO much!
