Uriah James was born Thursday, July 22nd, at 7:03 p.m. He weighed 8 pounds 8 ounces, was 21 inches long with ten fingers and ten toes.
My labor started 3:00 on Tue. so I didn’t get a lot of sleep in the following days. I’m still trying to catch up.
It was a long intense labor, with a few scares. We are thankful for all the prayers. We had two amazing midwives with us, and my mom was able to make is, which I was so thankful for.
Uriah was not breathing when he was born. The umbilical chord was wrapped around his left wrist, and got so tight as to cut off the circulation. The midwives knew there was something wrong, as they had been watching his heart rate. Immediately after he was born, they suctioned out his airways, gave him oxygen, and rubbing him to try to get him breathing. He was completely limp. They called for an ambulance, which showed up about five minutes later, but thankfully, Uriah had started breathing in the meantime. His heart had never stopped beating. I was pretty much in shock, just watching everything.
So we are enjoying the little miracle that the Lord has blessed us with, and are VERY thankful to say that Uriah is doing wonderful. Orion and I are doing fine as well. Orion thinks Uriah's the cutest baby ever. I am sleepy. :D
