Baby Crandall

This week Maris gave birth to our sweet new baby!  Because this is a public blog we won't be putting up pictures or details about our new baby.  Send us an email if you would like to see pictures and get an update.  Everything went well with giving birth, it is nice to live in a developed country.  Some of the hospitals may not look great on the outside, but they have all been fully remodeled on the inside.  I was really impressed by how nice it was.  It was nice and colorful, they had a nice hot tub too. 

 They aren't as epidural friendly as the US and only offer them if someone really wants one or if other methods don't really work.  Maris was a trooper and did it all with no pain killers.  Her goals before were to not have a c-section or an epidural.  Both completed!. It was a long process but she did great.  When they placed our beautiful baby in her arms it was such a beautiful moment, all the pain and hard work were forgotten and there was just a beautiful little baby in their place.

After giving birth we were able to get a family room, so we could be together.  This was the view out of our window.  As you can tell it is an amazing fall.  We had one of the best summers in years and now the best fall ever.  Beautiful sunny days and mild temperatures.  Since there hasn't been a deep freeze there are still lots of leaves on the trees.

I was really surprised at how beautiful our baby is!  You hope for a healthy baby, but if you can get a healthy and a beautiful baby then there is nothing else to even dream for.  When they were attending to Maris just after she gave birth, I got to hold our beautiful baby for a while. It was an amazing feeling.  It is really awesome to be a dad, and really awesome to have an addition to our family.
