    Things went as smoothly as they possibly could today! Mommy is a bit sore, but that is to be expected. Bryson was born at 3:02pm weighing 3lbs 5oz and was 16 1/2 inches long. He had a bit of a low blood sugar, but that was quickly remedied with a tiny bolus. His breathing is great, only being on cannula oxygen. They are estimating about a 4 week NICU stay so he can mature and put on weight. Big brothers were SO excited to see Bryson as they wheeled him pass the waiting room to the NICU. He looks just like a little old man because he has so much skin and not enough fat!

    Now the good part...pictures! Sorry if these are big!

    He does not look happy to be out of you... poor little dude! And yes, he does look like an absolutely adorable little old man.
    Congrats to the whole family!!!

    He was having trouble breathing last night, so they put him on a cpap. I wont get to hold him till he comes off of that, and they wont do feedings (through a feeding tube) till after that either.

    WOW! He looks great! I know 4 weeks seems like forever but he'll be home before you know it!

    Congratulations!
