And Then There Were Three!

Charlie Banks Gruber

 June 19, 2012
8 lbs 12 oz
19 inches 

Jason and I arrived at the Utah Valley Regional Hospital at 7:30 AM, and by 9:00 AM, Charlie Banks Gruber was born. Because he was still breech, we delivered by C-Section. I was a little nervous and anxious because the doctors were in a hurry, so I felt really all happened so fast. But in the end, the delivery went perfectly. I didn't feel a thing! Absolutely no pain! I would have to say it was a very pleasant way to deliver a baby, especially when I've heard of friends and family who have undergone hours and hours of labor!

Last moments of pregnancy!

Just as all new parents do, Jason and I loved Charlie instantly! We can't believe he is our own!

Jason was a trooper, watching the birth from above my head

I couldn't help but cry when I first saw Charlie

My big baby boy!
Love that double chin!
We saw some red hair that first day, but it has looked more blonde ever since.
