I am finally here!


Wow,


What a journey. I got pushed on for 3.5 hours until the doctors finally agreed that I was just to big! Off to surgery we went. My mommy was very scared but she was brave for me. Turns out that there was a full overhand knot in the umbilical cord. I could have told them that but they just couldn't hear me. But don't worry, the knot never cinched and my pulse stayed a nice steady 140 for the whole ordeal. I saw Dad first. He was describing my cute hair and overall awesomeness. That Daddy is a good man you know. He was scared too but stayed brave for Mommy and Me.

After all was said and done, I came in to this world at 8:59 PM, weighing 8lbs and 9oz with a length of 22.25 Inches. I had great Apgar scores, nines across the board. Yeah, I am a bit of an overachiever. So anyway, just had to toot my own horn since Mom and Dad are so tired. Good morning world!
Love always,
James Edward Kerbs
