Dash's Birth Story

I seriously have ALWAYS wanted to shoot a birth story. I don't know why, but I think they are amazing! Of course, most women don't want a camera in there taking photos every step of the way right? I know I wouldn't have wanted one there. Now... I DO!! I told my sister I wanted to shoot a birth story of her boy. She just raised her eye brows at me like I was a whack job! I kept telling her how beautiful some of them can be. I think I almost had her convinced.

However, us Bennett girls like to go out with a bang when it comes to deliveries. Apparently c-sections is becoming our specialty around here. Sadly, she went for the same reasons I did. After being induced and being in labour over 15 hours, water breaking and progressing from a nothing to a 2 in that amount of time, she was wheeled in for a C-Section. This brought back A LOT of memories and emotions for me. I was FREAKING out inside. I was SCARED for her. I tried to keep my emotions in check and put on a brave face for her.

Everything turned out BETTER then we expected and she was a rockstar at recovery! Her sweet little boy is here and I have LOVED taking lots (and I mean LOTS) of cute pics of this little man! Here's what we got from that day!

The Davis Hospital is beautiful...

This girl was having some CONTRACTIONS!

Lincs was wanting to run like a wild man through the hospital! Hallways are FUN for little men like him!

So we took turns going on walks with him. Poor kid!

We had to do something fun while the Dr was in there and we got kicked out of the room right?

Lincs and his Dad went with Grandpa to his house to have a little break!

Here is our fist look at little Dash Man right after the C-Section. It was an emotional moment for me! My little sister is a MOM!!! And I think the new dad is a little in shock!

Here's mom's first moments with her little son!

My parents are VERY proud of all their grandkids.

Congrats to my beautiful sister and her husband on their sweet little boy! I am proud of you guys and know you'll be great parents! Love you all!
