Noah Milton Brown

6 pounds 13 ounces
Nobody could really explain what had happened, why Noah wasn’t able to be delivered naturally. Everyone said he had plenty of room and was in a great position. Dr. Short later told Jamie, “The mom is like a lock and the baby is the key. The key has to turn a few times to open the lock and Noah just wasn’t making those turns.”
Although the birth experience was quite crazy, long, and not at all what I had expected (or prepared for), in the end we were just so blessed to have Noah here finally safe and sound! There are no words to express what becoming a parent feels like. It’s the most joy I’ve ever experienced and the most scared I’ve ever been all at the same time. Seeing Jamie interact with Noah has been one of the biggest blessings yet. During the birth, Jamie sat by my bed and stared at Noah’s heart monitor for 5 hours straight! When someone would ask if he needed to leave, he said “NO! This is my job!!” Not only did Jamie not leave the room until Thursday afternoon (only for 30 minutes to get lunch!) but he changed every diaper, waited on me hand and foot, and showed more emotion than I could ever have expected. He has been the perfect husband and is turning out to be an AMAZING daddy!
We are in love completely! End of story!
