Honestly, it kind of happened at a good time since I was able to take a break from blogging while I adjust to the new life with a child.
Yup. I'm a father now.
After 31 hours of labor, Haley Jude Bohannon was born on July 11th at 1:43 p.m. at St. Thomas Midtown Hospital in Nashville, TN. What an incredible experience!
Haley Jude Bohannon
Haley being born was really a climax to everything I have done over the last few years. It really is an incredible reward for getting healthy. Most importantly, I can't imagine if Kathryn had gotten pregnant at her previous weight of 280 lbs. It would have been scary to see how many problems she could have had in her pregnancy if she had been that heavy.
Furthermore, I couldn't imagine the people that we were a few years ago as parents. I am so thankful that we made the changes we did before we became parents. Not only are we much healthier, but we are much better off financially. Kathryn transitioning to becoming a house wife and not working carried almost no stress for us where as a few years ago I would have been a mess.
I can live now knowing that, God willing, Haley will have incredible health. Kathryn and I only keep quality, high density food in the house including local where we can.
