After lengthy, glowing posts about Andrew in May, then Ben in June, I pretty much neglected Jonah this birthday month. Time to make up for that.
The day Jonah was born (9/10/98), was the proudest day of my life. I would say that planning was the key. Like many new parents nowadays, we had a "birth plan". Chris wanted a home birth, but decided not to. Instead her Dr. agreed that he would put all medical equipment away, no IV's, no interventions for the baby, quiet music in the background...it was a beautiful plan. Then reality set it. Chris had a very rough labor, going on for the better part of 2 days. A good friend of ours was an OB resident who had to put an internal lead on Jonah's head (while of course, he was still on the inside). Ultimatly she then had a c-section at 1150 PM! It was then that we discovered the problem when Dr. Karnes shouted, "Look at the size of that head!" It was at that moment that we bought his first extra large pillow.
Jonah was a good looking baby.
He is a totally brainwashed MSU fan, (& no it's not alright if he roots for Michigan too!)
Besides being helpful with his baby brothers (not Ben so much), he is smart, athletic, and very funny (he makes me laugh...Chris says he's just like me, so she doesn't laugh as much). Besides these things, he has been blessed with the spiritual gift of falling asleep anywhere.
