< Upheaval: With Minutes to Spare

With Minutes to Spare

I'll leave the fun storytelling to the brave woman that endured it all day long yesterday, but to keep everyone happy, I'll just give you the quick facts.

After Dillon stayed glued to Amanda's side all day and then on into the evening and night, they decided to do a C-section late last night, and Dillon took his first breath at 11:53 pm on September 14, 2005. Weighing in at 8 pounds, 11 ounces, measuring 21 inches, Amanda says that he is a "mini - daddy."

Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers, and Amanda will probably share pictures when she gets back home in a day or so.

So exciting!!!

I was almost hoping that he was going to hold off one day so that he didn't have to share his birthday with Britney Spears' baby, but for his momma's sake, I'm glad he was born last night.

8 lbs, 11 oz!!! Bless her heart!

Congrats to the new mommy and daddy! Happy Birthday Dillon!
As for sharing the same birthday with Britneys son- hopefully one day (in my opinion) when someone tells him that he will say "Britney who?"

Happy Birthday to you, Dillon! I am so thrilled that you finally made your appearance! Darrel and I are thankful that you are ok, Amanda, and that everything went well. You'll do fine recovering from your surgery, and you will be a terrific mom! Nobody on earth could be Dillon's mommy but you, ya know! Much love to your family!

From another set of new parents, congratulations!
Sounds like a big boy already!
We enjoy parenthood a great deal overall. Learning how to cope with the child's introduction to disgestion is a challenge, but we're pretty much working through it OK!
We can share any limited advice we've gleaned in the past few days if you'd like. Otherwise, we'll leave you discover it for yourselves! (Assuming this is also your first) Take care!

Oh, and dsrnsw!!
