It was a beautiful evening as they went to the hospital just a few blocks from where they live. Orly was 5 days overdue at this point and they were ready to get this show on the road!
After already being in labor for about 20 hours, on the cusp of midnight Orly began to push and we wondered will he be born June 19th or 20th?
At exactly 12:18 am on June 20th, Conor Haim Murphy came into this world. He is 6 pounds and 15 ouces of 100% pure sweetness and it was love at first sight for all of us.
I was so honored to be in the labor and delivery room with them and of course I had to take pictures to help them remember this amazing moment.
I have never seen Orly as content and as happy as she was later that morning with Mike by her side and Conor in her arms. She said, "Avia, you are right the pain just doesnt matter, I already dont remember." Mike said "ya right, we will see when I ask you for baby #2"
Please join me in congratulating Orly & Mike on their beautiful and healthy baby boy, the craziest and most gratifying journey starts now...
So excited to have their baby!
Orly and I about 6 hours before Conor was born
Laughing in Labor. This is of course before the real pain kicked in.
We watched this monitor all night long tracking her progress
Mike never left her side
Of course we had to make bets on how big Conor would be. I was way off. What was I thinking?
The doctors quickly took Conor to check everything and clean him up and Mike and Orly just took a moment to absorb what just happened.
I took this picture of Conor and Mike when he was about 5 minutes old. He grasped onto Daddy's finger right away.
Getting to know his boy.
And finally...they could all 3 be together.
Oh, hello there handsome!
Omalay holding Conor for the first time. This makes Grandson #3 for her.
That face! I can't take it.
I might steal him and add him to my crew of boys at home:)
And baby makes 3
Pretty crazy about him already. Just saying...
