I would like to introduce you all to Cody Scot Vranes, born this past Saturday a 6 lbs 2 oz, 20 inches long, and size 13 feet (OK, obviously not really, but his feet are long and thin - I'll snag a picture of that later). He's a long, thin little guy who missed out on some girth-building time - he was born 2 1/2 weeks early. (Note: pardon if any of the following brief summary is TMI for anybody - I'm not always the best judge of that. Hopefully Tiffany doesn't mind, but her and Cody are asleep right now, so I'm taking my liberties - wish me luck) Yeah, we were a little surprised on Friday night when Tiffany's water broke. 8 hours later, the doctor had the nurse check things out after several abnormal, but not too serious, heart rate drops by Cody during contractions. The nurse discovered Tiffany had a prolapsed cord (where part of it is outside), so while the baby's vitals weren't in critical condition, they took her in for an emergency C-section. The hospital is nice but not always the most organized, but it was a well-oiled machine when the nurse made the call. Nearly 10 nurses were in the room prepping Tiffany and she was wheeled off to OR and withing 15-20 minutes after the nurse made the call, Cody was delivered. Heavenly Father was watching out for us and answering prayers. Tiffany and Cody are doing just fine and we able to come home yesterday. When I brought Landon home from our friends' house, he was more interested in the lamp I had moved downstairs instead of Cody. Later on, he softly petted him (he's had practice on our dog). Here are some pictures that I hope you enjoy.
