This morning I woke up to Janell telling me that her water had broken. It was 5:30 in the morning. We rapidly got everything together, hopped in the car, and went to the hospital. The crazy day had just begun.

Arriving at the hospital at 6:15, they started checking her out to make sure that she was in labor. She certainly was. The problem was that the baby was breech. They wanted to do a c-section, but he didn’t want to wait for that. He was born at 7:10 with no c-section.

So, Benjamin Joseph was born on July 14, 2008, at 7:10, weighing in at an even 6 pounds and measuring 19 inches long. Mom and baby are doing fine.

Here are some pictures. Video will be coming soon.
