BENNETT MANN IS HERE!!!!!

Well, i guess labor is named that for a reason. Kevin and i entered the hospital Sept 6th at 1:30 pm. I labored for 28 hours....saw baby Bennetts head arriving...until we realized that he couldnt quite fit and the cord was wrapped around his neck. My doctor, Dr. Storck is her name ironicly, was an amazing doctor and decided we needed to do a c-section. Bennett was born Friday, Septemeber 7th at 11:29 pm. He is healthy and we are in love. God is the great redeemer of hard situations....i can begin to see in hindsight why i couldnt deliver too easily too soon.....we didnt know the cord was wrapped or that he wouldnt fit. anyway....i am still on drugs and perhaps not making sense...but here are some cute pictures of our son BENNETT ( which means blessing) DAVIS ( which means beloved) MANN.
