After months of waiting, Robert Paul Peters (Robby) was born on Monday, June 25th. Since Robby was 3 days past his due date, Mom and Dad went to the hospital that morning to get induced and 9 and a half hours later Robby was born! Mom was extremely grateful that labor second time around was less than half of her 22 hour labor with Katie.
At 8 pounds 2.8 ounces and 20 inches long, Robby surprised all of us with his size. Mom especially didn't think she was capable of carrying such a big baby!
Robby's timing was such that the entire family - including Big Sister Katie - was able to be there for his birth. Although the original plan was for Grandma and Katie to wait in the waiting room during the pushing, they ended up staying for the whole thing! They hung out in one end of the room (where Katie couldn't focus on Mom) and Katie had an absolute ball joining in with the counting to help Mom with the pushing, which only lasted about 15 minutes. She was enthralled that the entire room was counting with her!
Once Robby arrived, Katie couldn't take her eyes off him. She was fascinated and just wanted to touch him.
Poppy Paul was also here for the entire birth but unfortunately, he is not in these photos because he was the photographer/videographer throughout the whole day. He was able to record this memorable experience so we can look back on it for years to come!
Robby's birth was an exciting event for all of us and we couldn't be happier to welcome little Robby into the world!
Stay tuned for more pictures of Robby arriving home coming in a few days!
