I went to the hospital on Monday June 3rd around 9pm to get induced. Shortly after receiving my first dose of medication Tanner's heart rate dropped. He continued to have decelerations with contractions throughout the night. The doctors and I decided that we should just be safe and deliver him via c-section since he was not tolerating the contractions at all. He was born at 9:37am and was just perfect weighing 6 lbs 11 ounces and 18.5 inches long. I was so glad we had the c-section because it turned out his cord was around his neck which explained all the troubles he had with his heart rate throughout the night.

First Doctor Appt - 6 days old
Tanner left the hospital 6 lbs 3 ounces (Friday) and by Monday he weighed 6 lbs 8 ounces. The pediatrician was so pleased he said that I didn't have to wake him up to eat at night anymore!

2 Week Appt
Sweet boy weighed 7 lbs 1 ounce and was 20 inches! I couldn't believe how much he had grown. He got an A+ for health and we don't have to be back for another checkup until his 2 month appt. Tanner also had his first bath this week. He loves the water!!! I knew he would because both Kris and I love the water. I can't wait till next summer when we have a water baby, we will be in the pool all the time.
Tanner did great at his newborn shoot, he even peed and pooped on the photographer a few times! I just love the pictures that she took and will defiantly use her again for his 6 month photos. The following pics are my favorite from the session.
1 Month Old- July 4th
We took Tanner to the lake house to see his Grand Dad for the 4th. His Grand Dad Dale's birthday is July 5th so we had a little bday party for both Dale and Tanner. We had so much fun at the lake and Tanner was totally spoiled the whole time.
