Colin Kristopher Brown

I would love to introduce to you, my little prince from above, Colin Kristopher Brown.


Day: Thursday, September 24th
Time: 10:00 AM
Weight: 6 Lbs 11 Oz
Height: 19 1/2 inches
Hair: LOTS of it!

I went into the hospital at 7:45 for my scheduled 9:30 c-section. I had the A team working with me, so I was prepped and ready to go right on the dot. Thirty minutes later my little guy was here. The first thing the Doctor said was " Did you have a lot of indigestion, cause this kid has a lot of hair." And I love it!

Everyone preps you for what an incredible feeling it is the moment your baby is here, but I had no idea! Later on I posted on Facebook that my cup runneth over, and thats the best way I can explain it. A overwhelming amount of emotion.

The c-section went well, and I had a great hospital stay. Colin had trouble eating at first, and dropped down to 5 lbs 12 oz, and I was afraid they were going to make him stay longer, but he started eating like a true Kreider.

My wonderful mother has come for a few weeks to help take care of us. She has been such a huge help and I really wonder how I could be doing this without her. I am loving every minute I get to be with her. I love my mommy! Thanks MOM!!!

We are so blessed to have all of Kristopher's family close by. They have all been so wonderful helping us with anything we need. My mother and father in-law became grandparents for the first time and they are already pro's! I'm so thankful for them and all they do for us!

He is such JOY!! I have loved every minute of him so far. I can't help but to just watch him and think that he is mine and Kristopher's forever. My heart is full!

When asked what I wanted him to look like, I would always say "a little Kristopher." And that I got!
