Judah Benjamin

The very hardest and one of the very best days of my life. Enjoy!

My water broke at 2:15am. About an hour and a half of repacking hospital bags, and we were off!

We got to the hospital around 4am, which is when my contractions started to be more regular. As you can tell, this picture was taken very early on.

And this picture was taken much later. After about 10 hours of labor (including about 2 hours of pushing) and zero pain mediation. Isn't my baby boy the sweetest?

Here's Judah picking his nose.

8 pounds .5 ounces, 21 inches long. It's a good thing he was 10 days early!
The proud papa and very best labor coach ever.

And here he is!!

At this point, Jason said, "This is one of the greatest moments of my life."

Judah is almost smiling here!

Trying to get a good family portrait with a baby who would much rather be sleeping.

The happy Lawrenz family of three!
