He's here!!!!

Connor Patrick arrived Tuesday, December 2 at approx 3:17 pm. He weighs 7 lbs, 7 oz, measured 20 1/4 inches long and is perfect!!!!!! After all the stress about him being too small, he came out appropriate for gestational age!!!! And he fits quite well into his newborn size clothes!!


I was induced starting Monday night and had a very quick and uneventful labor on Tuesday, well until his actual delivery due to the fact that the only person in the room at the time of arrival with any medical training was his mother. And the only witness to his birth was his father.

No, I'm not kidding, and I'll post more details in a later post, but he was definately ready to come out!!!

Just wanted to share a few quick pictures- we are still in the hospital, but he's doing great!!

Minutes after his arrival.

Bath time.....




I guess it is good I didn't buy any of those preemie clothes after all!!!!!!
