Everyone.... please welcome:
Adam Jacob McNugget
to the world!
Hi folks, it's Alison - friend of K and Hubs, taking over the blog to update you on the haps of the last few days. I just left the hospital and with permission am hijacking the blog to give a brief overview of what's happened, and post a new photo or two.
After a very long couple of days, with some dilating, and some effacing, and not alot else'ing, the doctors decided to do a c-section to get AJ out, both for his and K's safety. He popped out with a BIG YELL, and all were relieved he was finally here!
Stats: Male, Adam Jacob (AJ) McNugget, 20 inches long, 9lbs 5 oz
The next little bit was tense for most as they waited for K to get through the recovery process, apparently there were a few scary moments, as she didnt have as smooth of a recovery as anyone would have liked. However, she bounced back and made it back to her room about 9:30 last night.
K was drugged up on Demoral, so she didnt really get to inspect Adam until early this morning, and is happy to report that he does in fact have all 10 fingers and toes, and everything else he is supposed to have. I was up there a bit this afternoon and she is doing GREAT! She is up and out of bed, not hooked up to any monitors, or have any tubes in appropriate places, she is great, Hubs is great and the kid is great. He's VERY sturdy and fun to hold!
Hubs family was in the room when I arrived, and I got this cute shot of Hubs sister holding AJ... however, I can't get it to load - so... sorry! It's a really cute picture!
Finally some special thanks from K and Hubs to share with you - followed by a letter, dictated by K to a certain group of friends and bloggers. They should be up and posting later this week, but if somethign exciting happens, I'll be sure to hack back in and update you!! Cheers, Alison
Thanks to Mom and Carie for taking such great care of K and Hubs during her long and tumultuous labor.
Thanks to Aaron for being the "on-site" communications person, who knew you were such a savvy texter. You gave out great information!!
Thanks to Amanda for sending out great emails, keeping us all in the loop - that was awesome!
And thanks to all the family and friends for the support, we appreciate it!
Editors Note: I'm sure I forgot someone, so apologies on behalf of the current blog-author...
Finally - please enjoy the letter dicatated to me by K to a very special organization.
Dear IBFC President and Members,
I am writing to inform you of the disposition of my recent birth. As you know, I recently gave birth to a child of the male gender, rendering me in eligible to join the ranks of the IBFC.
I appreciate the guidance you have given me the last several weeks, preparing me for what the appropriate headwear for a baby girl is, and will store that knowledge for future use. However, I am curious as to what is considered appropriate headwear for baby boys - as the bows... are out. We are currently considering a variety of hats, visors, and caps as we look forward to dressing our new baby boy.
Thanks again for your guidance the last several weeks, I am now going to research a phenomenon called ... "The Pee-Pee Tee-Pee"... I wonder if they come in coordinating colors.
