Brett Ivan Nelson

July 18, 2012  5:32 AM
6 lb. 6 oz.   17 3/4 in.

We couldn't have asked for a more wonderful delivery. Everything went well and we feel so blessed to have little Brett with us! I had a scheduled c-section for the morning of the 18th at 9:00am. We went to bed Tuesday night with our alarms set to be at the hospital by 7:00am on Wednesday. But apparently Brett wanted to be a little bit ahead of schedule because around 2AM that morning my water broke! By 2:30 I was having consistent (and I might add, painful) contractions. We were at the hospital by 3:00 and my doctor arrived around 5AM to do the c-section. When they pulled him out he was all tangled up in the umbilical cord; it was wrapped around his neck twice, his abdomen, and his leg! It didn't surprise me, though, because he was very active in the womb - I swear sometimes I thought he was doing gymnastics in there :)

Healthy and happy little boy!

The first time Emma held him was so cute. We put Brett in her arms and she said to him, "Oh hi sweetie". We died laughing! She's such a good big sister :)

Family of 4 now!

Coming home from the hospital

I attempted to take some 'professional' looking pictures of Brett. Let's just say there's a reason I'm not a photographer... and I don't have any cool editing program either...

I tried for a good 15 minutes to get a cute picture of Emma and Brett together and this was the best I could do. 

Brett was pretty much screaming the whole time. 

Haha, we'll have to try again another time...

Spencer and Taylor had their little boy, Bradford, two and a half weeks after we had Brett. They're already best friends :)
