June 5

Last portrait of our family of five. We were so excited the day had finally arrived.
We arrived at the hospital at 3:00 pm. the girls stayed with me until Auntie Kalyn came and took them to dinner. I had a wonderful labor as I had an epidural as soon as I arrived. My support group was Jarrod, Grandma Kerry, Auntie Shawna and my girlfriend Beth at around 11:40 I had the urge to push and at 11:45 our baby Cooper made his first appearance into this world. It was really a beautiful experience, in which I am so grateful. The recovery and nursing has been very difficult. With a week of trying and painful nursing he has finally learned to latch on. He is such a wonderful addition to our family. Jarrod and the girls have been such wonderful help. I couldn't ask for a more wonderful family. I really couldn't do it without all of their help.
