Meet Jared!!

I just had to share some pictures of my new nephew Jared. He was born on Thursday at 12:45pm. He is a tiny little guy weighing only 4lbs 7.5oz, but he is as healthy as a full term baby. His pediatricians only concern is making sure he gains weight instead of loses, so we have been feeding him around every two to three hours. He is starting to eat more and more with every feeding and is doing great!! Knock on wood, he hasn't spit up yet at all, and he rarely ever cries, unless he is cold(as you can tell from one of the pictures-I just got done changing his diaper and he was MAD!!) or wet, and he just lets out one little squeak, and he is done. And trust me when I tell you, his digestive system is working fine!!! He is also super alert, and has a full head of strawberry blond hair. I have spent the last two days at the hospital with him and my sister. I was supposed to be in the delivery room with my sister, but he came a day earlier than he was supposed to(she was scheduled for induction) and I missed it. Let me tell you, anyone who came into the PO in Macedonia saw me crying from around 1 to 3:30!!! I left straight from work on Thursday and got home this morning in time to get ready for work. Now I am taking care of my responsibilities, and I am on my way back. I am completely obsessed with him already!! Isn't he a CUTIE!!! In this last picture he is holding up his own pacifier, isn't it adorable!!

  17. He looks absolutely perfect Jessie!! I can understand you being excited!!! He may loose a few ounces during the first week or 2, but they'll come right back on and he'll be on track to grow and grow and catch up in no time! Give him some extra snuggles from me. :-)

    Lots of huggs,
    Jana
