My baby, Roscoe Bramblett Lopez, was born July 29 at 4:05am. During pregnancy I was convinced I would go into labor spontaneously at 39 weeks, but it never happened. I was 42 weeks pregnant when we checked into the hospital for my induction. Roscoe’s birth was an intense 20 hour window of time. I will never forget it, but it’s hard to describe or put into words. She was worth it all. Here are some newborn portraits from Roscoe’s first month with us.
