Welcome to the World Precious Ian James!!!


Last Friday about 45 minutes after I posted my baby update my water broke! I labored for about 8 1/2 hours ..........

and at 12:05 am on Saturday April 25th weighing 5lbs 9oz at 19 inches long Baby Ian made his grand entrance into this world.....

Ian was born at 35 weeks. I only got to hold him for long enough to snap a few pictures then he was immediately taken to the NICU.......

This is not our first experience with the NICU, our first son who was born at 36 weeks was in the NICU for 11 days. Although that does not make it easier it does help us understand better what is going on. Ian is a perfect little baby who just wasn't done cooking! With a little help from the awesome NICU unit and some time he will be perfectly healthy and able to come home!

Mommy and Daddy couldn't be more in Love!!!!!!!!!!
