If you follow us on Facebook or Instagram then you already know from status updates and photos…Our baby boy entered the world 2 full weeks early on May 15, 2012!!! After 26 hours of intense labor, Rhett Easton Childs was born at 12:50pm, weighed 8 lbs. 2 oz. and was 20.5 in long. He is simply perfect in our eyes! Every little noise he makes, cute facial expression and adorable movement truly melts our hearts. Brock and I have been waiting to be parents for years and we have been blessed with such an amazing gift. We are thankful every day that God chose us to be Rhett’s parents! Everyone always tells you how much love you will have for your child, but we could never have imaged how much our hearts would be bursting with emotion, happiness and true LOVE. Brock and I can’t stop staring at his squishy little face and cherishing the memories we are creating!
You may remember our dear friends (Talented photographers/Filmmakers) Ben Poenisch and Megan Wynn from the spectacular film they created for us when we had our first ultra sound. If not, check it in this post! The day baby Rhett entered the world, we also had the pleasure of having the incredible moments captured by Ben and Megan. Megan was in the delivery room to photograph his birth (and surprised us with video) and Ben perfectly documented moments throughout the delivery process with video. Words can not express how priceless this film and photos are to us! Having the most special day of our lives captured in such amazing ways, are a true gift! We will treasure these for the rest of our lives and one day Rhett will know how much loved surround him on his day of birth! Get ready to grab some tissues because this video below is full of love and emotion for our boy…pretty sure you will shed a tear! Ben will be releasing his new video company (in addition to his photography company) called REWIND over the summer. Be sure to stay plugged into his blog for updates!
Finally getting ready to push after 26 hours of labor (ended up pushing for 2 full hours).
So many overwhelming emotions and tears.
FINALLY seeing our boy for the first time!!! Tears of happiness!!!
Love that small tear on Brock’s nose!
Rhett recognized our voices while getting cleaned up. He turned and looked directly at us and it was a magical moment!
Sweet baby fingers!
Perfectly chunky baby boy!
Waited 9 long months to kiss those baby toes that constantly kicked me during pregnancy!
