Jett's Birth and First Month

Here's our sweet boy, Jett Spencer Rogers who decided to come into this world a day early and face up, which made for an interesting delivery. And by interesting I mean five hours of pushing.  It came down to one last push, just one before my doctor threw in the towel, called it a day, and wheeled me into the OR for a C-section.  His words to me were, "This is your last chance.  Push like you don't want a C-section. "  Well OK doc. And with some help from my husband, that's exactly what I did.  We were all relieved when his head popped out followed by the rest of him.  He was here at last.

Jett weighed in at 7 pounds 6 ounces and was 19.5 inches long. Perfection.

Being a mother to such a sweet little spirit feels like a dream.  I still can't believe he is here, that this is real.  I feel so honored and blessed to be in this place.  To see my husband become a father again and to see my stepchildren dote on their baby brother is indescribable.  This experience is everything I hoped it would be.  I love being a mom.  I love being Jett's mom.
