Daddy comes home from deployment and...23 hours later our baby is born!!!!!!

Well it has been a crazy 2 weeeks!!! Scott came home from deployment early friday morning and I had a scheduled c-section on Monday, Nov 23 but.....i went into labor on Friday night/early Saturday morning and he was born at 6:18am on November 21!! He weighed 6lb 14oz and was 20 and 1/2 inches long! I was so suprised because I have never gone into labor before but sooooooo grateful that Scott made it home just in time!! I Still had him via c-section and it all went really well.

I look like a train wreck in this picture but this is the first time I was able to hold my sweet little bundle of JOY!!

This is the first time Scott held him and as you can see I'm still getting stitched up on the table!!

I love this picture because he has his hand is over his face and during my pregnancy I had 8 ultrasounds beccause they were worried about his growth and we NEVER saw his face!!! Even now when we wrap him to go to bed we have to leave his hands out because he will not sleep if they are not by his face!!!

When he was first born we didn't see a very strong resemblance between him and the older 2 boys but as he gets older and has gained some weight he looks just like Branson and Eli who are carbon copies of their daddy!!!
Last but not least we named him....Emmett Andrew Romriell. It has been 2 weeks from today that he was born and it has been so amazing! He is truly an amazing baby that rarely cries unless he is hungry and he has an appetite of a Lion!! I think is going to be just a chubby as his older brothers!!! I feel overwhelmed with gratitude that I have another healthy son!!! Branson and Eli LOVE him so much and Eli will hold him any chance he gets and Branson is such a good helper and is so kind and gentle with him!!! Our house is full of love and we couldn't be Happier!!!! Life is good:)
