Dad prepares for surgery by putting on his scubs.

The first incision has been made...and the baby will be here very soon.

The baby is suctioned while her cord is clamped and cut.

She is taken over to the warmer and wiped off.

The nurse gives the baby her first bath.

A beautiful 10 pound 9 ounce baby girl who is 21.5 inches long sucks on her pacifier.

Mom nurses her daughter for the first time.

Daddy cuddles her and smiles proudly.

Finally out of bed and sitting in a chair, mom nurses her baby again.

Even though mom is nursing, dad gives baby a bottle while still in the hospital.
