Introducing Chisum.

Ronny and I are excited to announce our little boy!

Chisum Marshall Pope
September 9, 2013 @ 8:28 am
8 pounds, 10 ounces
21 1/4 inches long

Chisum has quite the birth story to tell and I hope to tell it all in the near future. We both had quite the scare with me having an amniotic embolism before he was born, then I went into DIC after he was born. I know that we are both very blessed for not only surviving the events, but for being so healthy and thriving today. More soon, but meanwhile – pictures! Many of these are from the NICU and our first few days at home.
My first time holding Chisum after getting released from ICU. What a moment!

Thanks for the pictures! He is so beautiful! Morris is dying to meet him...I think that's why he has been fussy lately, he is mad we haven't came out yet;)
