Welcome Home Jonah




He is finally here!

Jonah Patrick Lawrence was born on Wednesday night at 8:29 PM. Weighing in at 7 pounds 11 ounces and 20.5 inches tall.



So you could say this has been a busy week. My mother drove up on my due date to await the arrival of Jonah, and then on Sunday morning my sister, Corinn, showed up really early to surprise my mom for mothers day.....and to tell Jonah to come out already. 
Unfortunately Corinn had to be back in New Jersey by Friday, so after 41 weeks of being pregnant, I was done waiting. We scheduled a time for an induction for Wednesday morning, and after 12 hours of labor, Jonah was here. 

On the way to the hospital:

Early in labor (obviously, because I was still smiling):



Here he is....fresh slimy baby!

Awesome after labor picture....

Annalise was so excited to meet her new baby brother. I thought for sure she would come in and say "Hi baby Oscar, it's me Annalise." However she was a little timid and when we asked what his name was she said it was Jonah. Ever since he was born she has  not wanted to leave his side, she changed his diaper as soon as she could, and helped get him dressed. She refers to him as "my baby". 




Welcome to the world Jonah........

Congratulations!! He is so perfect! And you'll have to share with all of us your secret for looking so amazing after labor. I, much like Emily above, looked like death had come to visit me as well. But that could be just because I had the labor to match.

Again, Congratulations!!

Hi guys. I LOVE the pictures! Everybody looks great and happy! It sure is hard not to be able to see you all more often. I'm so excited to get back to Ohio in August. See ya then. In the meantime, I'm so thankful for facebook, blogs and video cams.
