Howdy!

Most of you know Melanie and I had our first baby on Monday after a difficult delivery/emergency c-section. The placenta abrupted (separated) during labor and they had to rush them to surgery. Luckily she had received her epidural an hour earlier so they had access for pain control for the surgery (plus some local anesthetic).

David is still in NICU at St Elizabeth Hospital, though they've weaned him off oxygen and began feedings yesterday (Tuesday). He was born at 37.5 weeks but for some reason still unknown was only 3lbs 13oz., so he'll be in NICU for several weeks while he gains weight. Melanie is doing well, though she has been very sore from the combo labor and c-section, please keep both in your prayers as they heal and grow. Melanie should get to go home Thursday.

Here's some pictures of both from the last 2 days, we got to hold David yesterday smile

3lbs. 13oz / 17.5 inches

Love,

Allen

Congrats AA, MA and DA!

Looking at all of your pictures brought back all the memories of my girls when they were teeny tiny...the little cap, swaddled up, learning how to hold them, feed them, change them all that good stuff.

Looks like he has done well enough to come home Friday - he's gained 10 ounces (~300gm) since birth 9 days ago. All tests so far on why he was so small have been negative, we may never find out what happened. It will be good to have him home tho smile

yeh, nothing livens a home up like the pitter patter of little feet... well, you won't have that yet, so we'll reitterate it as "nothing livens the home up like the sigh of content of a baby"

They both look great allen smile

Today he's 9 months old. We had some fun a week ago taking pictures in the living room:

In the mostly black one he had just peed on Melanie, so you understand the expression on both faces laugh I call him "cool breeze" now wink
