Kilee and Baby are both doing great! Kilee was absolutely amazing! This morning she started having hard contractions when she woke up at 6:45 am. She was dilated to a full six when we arrived at the hospital at 10:15 am. After that things progressed so quickly that there was no time for anesthetics, because just two hours later at 12:17 pm our boy was born! Everything went beautifully! Kilee was so brave! After his heel pricks, bright lights, bath, and people touching him all over, he has been calm most of the afternoon. We’re trying to get him to nurse but having difficulty. Kilee said, “he just wants to sleep with his face smashed against my boob.” Sounds about right. He has the greatest mom in the world!
Well lets, see…details: He is 20.75 inches long with a red chubby face and thin dark hair. I just love him. I got to change the first diaper and take him around the hospital while nurses had to do things, so we got some good father/son time. We’re friends.
So, here are some pictures. Thank you to all our friends who have been so nice to Kilee! We just love you all and are so grateful to know so many amazing people!
Other updates: I have a job interview early this week with the finance department at the Eddie Bauer headquarters in Bellevue, WA. It’s a great job opportunity so we’re really excited and hopeful.
Thanks again and tell Kilee how great she looks!!!
