8 pounds 4 ounces
Our son is here! August, Augie, Gus, Dimples, and Slugger (so apropos for a baby born during the World Series) are just some of that names that we’ve coined for him over these past three weeks. These weeks have been fun, reflective, life changing, joyous and tiresome. Even though August was born 3 weeks early he was quite huge (8.4lbs! Are you kidding me? Almost 21inches? Serious? I could hardly believe it). Even though he shares parts of his name with his dad (Matthew David), he got his dimples from my side of the family, which I count as a win considering our daughter looks identical to my husband.
I debated about whether or not I should post some of these photos because a couple of them are graphic, but I decided to share them. God’s creation is a miracle to marvel and some of these photos are proof of that. My husband was able to be both fully present with me as I delivered him and take a few photos in the process which we will always treasure.
So, meet August. Our son…
