Canon Phillip Hunter is Here!!!

Canon Phillip Hunter was born at 9:13am, this Morning, October 23rd, on his due date! He weighs 9lb 3oz and has brown curly hair, he was 21 inches long, and his head was 13 and 1/4 inch. He's absolutely perfect! Praise the Lord!

Shelly's water broke at midnight last night and her labor progressed quickly after that. She began pushing and seemed to push for a long time before her doctor came in and found that Canon was transverse, his head was turned and blocking his exit. The doctor thinks that since Shelly progressed so quickly, that he just moved down so fast and got stuck. They tried to move his head, but he wasn't going to move, so the doctor decided that a c-section would be best. Shelly is doing great now, she's just really tired. She and Phillip have both been up for at least 36 hours. When I talked to her Canon was napping on Phillip's chest and Shelly was about to take a long awaited nap!

We praise the Lord for a healthy baby boy!!! Phillip will send pictures later this evening, so check back tonight or tomorrow to see pictures of Canon Phillip Hunter :)

(This was updated by Angie, Shelly's sister. They wanted you guys to know their exciting news!!!)
