Gratituesday: Baby Cole

This weekend our family welcomed a new beautiful baby boy into the world.  Cole is my cousin Allison’s baby.

The last few weeks of the pregnancy were fairly rough on Allison.  Allison’s labor was induced when she was diagnosed with preeclampsia.  After 23 hours of little progress, they performed a c-section.  We are so thankful they did, because Cole had his umbilical cord wrapped around his neck twice and was trying to come out sideways!

Cole is the most beautiful baby boy.  He was 8.4 lbs and 19 inches long.

Allison gave us a scare with some bleeding issues following the c-section but thankfully pulled through just fine.

I am so grateful that my cousin and her baby are well!  What are you grateful for this gratituesday?
