Baby announcement

Hey all --

mai_mischief reminded me that I never posted a birth announcement, so here it is!

Baby Suley was born on July 12, 2005 at 12:43 pm via scheduled C-section. He weighed 7 lbs 7 ounces and was 20 inches long. He spent one night in the NICU to monitor his breathing and then roomed in with us for the next two nights. They had told us he couldn't room in at all since he'd been in the NICU so we "stole" him from the nursery -- asked if we could see him in our room, then never returned him. Good thing, too, because on two separate occasions nurses came to our room and tried to take him to be circumcised! If he'd been in the nursery, we wouldn't have been there to say "hands off his foreskin!"

He is currently on a biliblanket for jaundice. His bilirubin level went from 11 (Friday) to 16 (Monday) to 19 (Thursday) and is now back down to 15 as of today. The people from the medical supply company who provide the biliblanket tried to tell us we had to switch to formula for one feeding a day. We smiled and nodded. No dice.

Anyway, he's gorgeous and perfect and he's waking up now so I gotta go! There's a big picture of him on my info page.
