Baby James


video

His little hands are covered to keep him from scratching his face. But, it looks like a little salute. Or, maybe an, "oy, vey...what a day !"

The video is the first time I got to see him. After 22 hours of labor, and being induced, they decided to do a c-section. So, Amber was put under, and did not get to see him at first like we did. Surrounded by family and friends, they brought her back to the room, and she finally got to see her baby. And hold him. It was love at first sight. She could not take her eyes off of him.

There are no such thing as visiting hours anymore, and everyone was allowed in their room. She had a huge double room with windows on two sides. Amber's folks, and sister, and nieces and friends were all there and we were all taking pictures.

I love how James calls him his little buddy and comforts Baby James with his voice. James got to cut the cord, and be the first to hold him, and dress him and take care of him under the warming lights until they brought Amber back into the room. It was so special to watch.

I wondered if Amber had to have a C-section...I've been there and will surely keep her in my prayers! I imagine she is pretty sore right now but it will get better! James Jr is beautiful! Congratulations Grannie & Granddad!!!!
