Baby Brother

He made it. He truly is a miracle. I won't go into all of the details of why there were so many doubts about him getting here. I will just tell you that our family is blessed, excited, and grateful to have him here.

Weighing in at just 4 lbs 14 oz and 18 inches, Will is a tiny guy. At about 4:30 pm August 25th he was brought into this world whether he was ready or not. He looks very good until the blood result came back with a glucose level of 12. We didn't know what that meant either until they said they like to see that at least a 60. So he's in the NICU for a little while so they can stabilize him and watch him for a bit. His levels were stable late last night and seemed to be doing just fine.

He's much quieter than his sisters so far. Mom's doing fine. Things went 100 times better than the last delivery. The girls won't be able to see their brother for a couple of days until Will is out of the NICU since they won't let children in. Amanda is very excited for her baby brother, though. Erin, well we'll see if she truly gets what's going on.

  4. Scott and Mary Ann, Congratulations! He is beautiful and truly a miracle. I sent you a text because I wasn't able to reach you the few times I called. I was going to come visit you but decided to stop and see the girls instead. I wanted to see how they were handling all the excitement. We had a good time together. Thanks for posting pictures. My kids were anxious to see what Will looks like. I'll talk to you soon.

  5. Congratulations Scott and Mary Ann. What a handsome boy. Glad he is here and doing well. Hope things just get better and better!!
