August in September






















August Frederick Hollobaugh
September 20, 2012
8:04 AM
7 lbs 14 oz
19 1/2 inches

Random facts:
- He was born 2 weeks early. Well, 13 days to be exact.
- He came 14 minutes after we got to the hospital.
- 3 minutes of pushing.
- I didn't get an epidural (not that I had a choice, but I'm grateful I didn't...wanted to experience natural childbirth this time around, and recovery has been better than with my other kids).
- Was totally unprepared packing-wise and life-wise (my babies don't come early). As in, we brought nothing baby with us to the hospital.
- Mom dropped everything and left a couple hours after he was born to come be with us.
- Errin and Kelli were awesome, too...helped with kids til Mom got here.
- Justin got the idea for the name, August, while doing temple work for his grandpa's uncle. Can't say he's named AFTER the guy since we know nothing about him, but his name was inspired by him.
- Frederick is Justin's middle name.
- The last picture is the welcome home we got...yummy cupcakes, balloons, and a cute sign. Thank you Mom and kids!
- Drew said, "Is our family just right now?" And I'm thinking yes. We love him.

Shauna!!!!! He is just beautiful. And way to go! You had the baby naturally, at a sprinters pace, and then look like a model in all of those pictures...which also has me wondering who was snapping away such great shots? Is Justin a photographer too? Or was it Sally? Love all of this post.
