Jessica's 1st Check Up

Baby Jessica had a great 1st check up.
Dr. Abbott even said that she is doing so well he does not need to see her for 2 months.
Good job baby Jess.

Jessica was calm and relaxed for her 1st doctors appointment.

Our good eater was back up to and above her birth weight. Weighing in at 8 lbs 4 oz.

Big brother Connor was on hand to help.

Happy Baby

Big brother Connor held Jessica's hand so she wouldn't be scared.

1st Day in the world

What a great start to life.

Connor was so sweet meeting his sister for the 1st time. He is such a loving brother. He gave her lots of kisses and snuggles.

We gave Connor a firefighter costume for his present from baby Jessica. He was thrilled and he looked adorable! 

Looking good fire chief Connor.

Connor was very careful holding baby Jessica. He kept telling us 'I won't hurt her or let her fall'.

Proud big brother.

Baby Jessica's namesake... Jessica Gibbs. Without Jessica Gibbs there would be no baby Jessica.

Jackie came to meet the little princess as well.

Jessica and Jackie brought Connor a little lion that he loves and has been sleeping with.

Auntie Ronda came to meet baby Jess and to pick up Connor for a special sleep over at her house.
Ronda and Todd have been so great and supportive. We are so lucky that they are our Santa Barbara family. I don't know what we'd do without them.
Thank you Fallon Family!

My best friend Ronda is always there for the big milestones in my life... I love you Ronda.

One VERY happy family.

The birth of baby Jessica

Jessica Sloan Stone was born Monday Sept 12, 2011 at 9:34am.
Jessica was 8 lbs 19 inches. Jessica's birth was a planned C-section. Our surgery was scheduled for 7:15am and we needed to be at the hospital at 5:15am. So our super babysitter Amber came over at 5am to hang out with Connor and get him ready for school.
Chris and I arrived at pre-op at 5:15am eager to get the surgery over with and meet our baby girl. However 10 minutes before we were to go into surgery the nurse came in and told us she had bad news... our surgery time was being pushed back due to another patient needing the or 1st. At 1st we were disappointed but it turned out to be a very special 2 hours wait for Chris and I. We laughed more in those 2 hrs than we had in a while. We were both giddy with excitement and joy and love. I will forever cherish that special time we had.

Lots of laughing.

Our terrific Nurse Karen. She help me get ready for surgery, she held my hands in the O.R. when they were doing my spinal tap (Chris was not allowed in yet), and she put on Michael Buble in the O.R. as well as played photographer for us in the O.R. and after in recovery too. 

Baby Jessica greeting the world with a nice healthy loud cry.

Proud papa ... now you have someone to walk down the isle.

I did not want to let go.

In recovery Jessica showed us how healthy she was holding my finger tightly and sucking hard on my pinky.

Baby Jess and her very proud daddy. 

Me and my baby girl.
