'I was crying so hard at this point but he was perfect. He was fully formed and everything was there, I could see his heart beating in his tiny chest,' wrote Fretz.
At some point, Fretz's husband Joshua went to her car and retrieved the camera she was going to shoot her friend's wedding on and took photographs of the couple's first son.
'I am so very glad that Joshua [did that]. At first I did not want any photos, but they are the only thing I have to look back on now,' Fretz wrote.
'I held him, cuddled him, while his heart was beating I held him to my heart, I counted his toes and kissed his tiny head. I will always cherish those memories that I have of him.'

I was born in 1929 and was told by my mother the story of my being born with two teeth. On the third
day when I was brought to my mother the teeth were gone and my gums were painted in red. Pulling
those birth teeth proved not to be a good idea in my case. I had that empty space until I was nearly six years
of age and the second teeth came in. I remember how excited my Mom was when she first noticed
my new teeth. When my oldest daughter was born in 1955 she also had two teeth. Following that in
1981 her son was born with two teeth. In both cases the teeth did not cause any problems and all went well.
I might mention that my paternal cousin was also born with two teeth. Now awaiting my first great grand-
child the first question I will ask after the birth is… did you check for teeth!!!!
