Right before we left, I had Matt take one last photo of my pregnant belly.
Once we checked in, we were brought to a tiny room where I was prepped for surgery. I knew that my usual doctor (and the one who had done my c-section with Gavin) was on vacation, so Jaxon would be delivered by a different doctor. I met with him a few days earlier and felt confident in his ability to do a great c-section delivery. They began by hooking the I.V. up to my hand (one of the WORST parts for me!) and of course, the lovely catheter. Then the waiting began...
And just as the time was about to arrive, I got told that I was getting pushed back an hour due to an emergency c-section. Darn it! Another hour would pass before I would get to hold my sweet baby boy in my arms and smother him with kisses. To say I was excited is a complete understatement. I was so eager to jump on the operating table so I could hear the sound of my sweet baby's cry and see his perfect little face.

And...at 9:12 a.m., Jaxon Matthew Rogers was born! 7 lbs 7 oz, 19-3/4 inches long and another incredible blessing in our lives! He was almost the same size as Gavin was at birth - 7 lbs 9 oz and 18-1/2 inches long.
When I heard his tiny cry, I cried tears of joy! And when I finally got to see his adorable face, I had tears streaming down mine. I immediately felt so much love for this tiny little perfect being. I was officially a mommy to two precious boys. Two boys who will forever have my heart and who I will forever love unconditionally. I knew at that moment that my mom was right -- I felt tremendous love for my sweet little Jaxon!
