Evan's Arrival

So, one week ago, our little bundle of joy made his entrance into the world. Evan Chatham Baroch was born April 8, 2011 at 8:09am via c-section. After 2 failed inductions totaling 64 hours, we followed my God-given instincts and decided on the surgery. Turns out, once again, God was right. Evan was in distress. His cord was thin and frail, it was wrapped tightly around his neck, the placenta was beat up, and he had a bowel movement in his amniotic fluid. Thank you Lord for the wisdom you gave.

Evan was born at 8:09 am on April 8th, 2011. He weighed 7lbs 10.4 oz and was 19 inches long. He had a rough go of it the first couple of days because he took so much of the amniotic fluid into his lungs, but is thriving now. He's running Mommy ragged, but he' s the light of my life.


  1. Wonderful! So happy for you all. Life will never be the same again...but it will be better than you could have ever imagine! God Bless.

  2. Thank you Brenda! I can't wait see what the Lord has in store for this little guy!

  3. Congrats! He is beautiful! Peter also had merconium in his fluid, and they had to take away from me right away to suck out his lungs, and decide if he needed to go to the NICU. It was the longest 20 minutes of my life!

  4. Came over from Keeper of the Past.......precious baby! Enjoy......and from a older Momma.....rock him all you want to. The time goes so fast!
