Baby on board







We are proud to present Colton Daniel Rose. My wife was so brave today she had to push for about 2 hours after being up all night and was an absolute champ about it, I never knew she was that tough. I know I could not have done that. This was a long and emotional 16 hours of labor and we're glad it's over(I know Ang will say to me later, "yeah real tough for you sleeping half the time huh Mike?); but the birth of Colton is something we will remember forever, what an incredible experience. We look forward to watching him grow, and I am willing to bet you will see Colton again on this blog in the future. I can't say for sure, but it's a hunch.



stats= 7 pounds 13 ounces. 20.5 inches long. Dark brown hair

Congratulations on your beautiful baby boy! He is very cute!

Heidi, Greg, and Jackson said...

Hats off to Angela for laboring through the night! Funny, your birth story sounds almost exactly like mine with Jackson (I was induced at 10:00 pm labored through the night, pushed for 2 hours and gave birth at 1pm-so I can attest it's no picnic!)

Colton is just precious! Enjoy him why he is so tiny, they grow so fast! Try to get some sleep and keep us updated with pictures! We wish we didn't live so far away so that we could hold him! I think he's a great mix of you two. Congrats!

We are positively ecstatic here at the Thelin house! Baby Colton is so precious! Way to go Angela! We are proud of all your hard work to get him here! I'm sure Mike was very helpful, too, when he was not sleeping. Just kidding--you both did a great job! We love you!

Cummards said...

Congrats! He is so sweet! Enjoy your first few days of parenthood at the hospital, in a few months you'll wish you could go back just for at least one night of good sleep :) I'm glad everything went well, sorry about the long labor..but it's so worth it!

Amy says: "He is so tiny! He looks like a little angel!" Holly says, "He is as tiny as a pickle!" Well, we shall see about that! Heidi doesn't think he looks like Mike at all.

Shannon said...

Bring on the baby blogs! I like having Mike as an honorary blogger while Angie is recovering -- you're good at it!
