Well he came 9 days late but on June 19, 2006 at 8:04 a.m. Shawn and I welcomed Kellen Paul into our family. I was sippoded to be enduced ( they had started my gel treatments) but Kellen was having some problems with my contractions so I ended up having to have a c-section. He is fine now but because of the fact that I was 9 days late the placenta was getting old and he wasn't getting enough oxygen. This meant that when I would have a contraction his heart rate would decrease and the doctors where not sure he would make it thru the labor, so instead of an emergency c-section we went straight to it. Hey, the good thing about having a c-section was that I never really had to feel the contractions and never had to push. The bad thing about having a c-section was that I had to stay in the hospital longer. I was going stir crazy in there.

Here are some pictures of our adorable Kellen.
He weighed 7lbs. 14 oz. and was 21 inches long.

As you can tell he has black hair and lots of it. He has Shawn's dark brown eyes with Colette's eyelashes.

Shawn is great with Kellen and Kellen sure does love daddy. They cuddle up all the time which is great for me because it gives me a little break.
