Welcome to the world Eric Brian Felt

We woke up on Tuesday, March 13th knowing that we'd be meeting your new family member. We got to the hospital at 8:00 AM and, by 10:00 AM, the doctors had attempted to flip the baby out of the breech position to no avail. By 10:45, I was being rolled into the operating room to begin the c-section. To say I was nervous is an understatement. But Brian was calm, cool & collected as always. Here he is in his scrubs getting ready to go into the OR: And here I am, looking just a little nervous:

All in all, the actual c-section itself was not as bad as I thought it would be. I did have some issues with the anesthesia and losing some extra blood because I wasn't clotting properly. But at 11:06 AM, Brian was asked to peek over the curtain to announce that the baby was a BOY! I had been thinking this baby was a boy all along, so it wasn't too much of a surprise for me. But here he is, just out of the womb:

I am the one who wanted "Brian" as the middle name, though Brian wasn't so sure of it. Eventually he agreed and we officially decided on "Eric Brian" for his full name:On Thursday, Aunt Megan came to meet her newest nephew:After a long 3 nights in the hospital, it was time to go home on Friday. Here Eric is all dressed in his going-home outfit:Close up:In the carseat:And heading to the car:Get ready for a million more pictures in the coming weeks!
