Dylan Scott Plemons

Well, Baby P is here! Dylan Scott was born happy (well, screaming) and healthy yesterday, Thursday, September 23 at 9:34 pm, weighing 7lbs 9.5 oz. He was born at 36 weeks and I was terrified that they would have to take him to the NICU and that he would have problems breathing. But he came out screaming and every doc, nurse and person in the room sigh a big sigh of relief and then started laughing because he was so loud!

Last night I didn't sleep one wink. I couldn't put him down. I was just amazed that God would allow us to have this little miracle come early and healthy. I literally looked at Dylan all night long and couldn't stop smiling.

Dylan is doing really well with breast feeding and has no blood sugar issues. NOT ONE! That is awesome considering that momma had gestational diabetes!

Dylan popped out, and was laid right on my chest where he warmed up and screamed his head off. It was right where he needed to be. :)

We didn't have a birth plan ready yet, but we knew what we wanted, and most of those were met. It was so amazing to have everything go well. I am beside myself.

Anyways, I am going to try and get some sleep. I just wanted to let you all know that God has blessed us twice in one year. We are so happy to have Dylan Scott in our family. 
I will write more later when I am rested, I am not sure any of this will make sense. So far 36 hours with no sleep. But I wanted to give it a try.

PS. I had no idea that babies heads smell so amazing. I think I shall spend all day tomorrow smelling Dylan's noggin. :)

Will post pictures soon. I am no longer able to keep my eyes open.
