Jesse is Born!

Please read the extended story about Jesse's Birth. It was written by Dave as a birthday present for Jesse's twelfth birthday in 1999. It includes all of the pictures shown here and lots of funny and informative background stories.

Jesse: Eight hours to D-Day

Here is Lyn upon checking into the Maternity ward. Just twelve short hours later, Jesse arrived on the scene.

Jesse: Just Hours Old

Here is Jesse, just hours old. Note the pattern from the window in the hospital nursury. Poor baby! You can see the trauma to his tiny skull from the extended time in the birth canal due to the difficult delivery.

Two days old and taking a nap

Here is baby Jesse, about two days old and all recovered from the difficult delivery. He is sleeping soundly still in the hospital nursury, very near checking out to go home.

His jaundice had not yet appeared and it was another week or two before the cholic started. This was a time of quiet joy, as his new parents had no idea what was coming.

Labor Pain Timing Logs (Click to Enlarge)

Don't know if your interested, but here is the detail log Dave kept during the delivery night. He was supposed to "time the contractions" and when he was done, the pages went into our all-inclusive "memory box".

Jesse's Baptism in August, 1987

Of course the story doesn't properly end until Jesse's baptism, in August 1987 at Dearborn's Good Shephard United Methodist Church. Rev Phil Seymour took delight in performing a pastor's favorite duty. Lyn's sister Laurie and Dave's good friend John stood up as godparents for our little bundle of joy.
