Baby Boy!

Well, I'll be out of commission for a few days...taking care of our new baby boy! Almost everything is okay...he just has some reflux issues that he's still getting tested for. Tomorrow they'll perform an ultrasound on his stomach to confirm their hunch on the problem. If they're correct...he'll require surgery. But, I'm hoping it's just a 24 hour "get used to the world" thing and he keeps showing improvement in the condition.

My wife did an incredible job and now on the road to recovery. Which is a tough road considering she labored for 10 hours before the little bugger got here.

Me? I'm tired but smart enough to know this is part of the deal. Mostly can't wait until all of our family can be well and together at home.

Keep us in your prayers.

Glad he's finally here! Big congrats to you and Mama, and hope he'll 'trade' you sleep for bottles!

The great thing about babies - they help you reduce the number of hours "wasted" on sleep. Now you can finally break out of the tired cycle of only using 16-18 hours of the solar day.

Congrats and I hope everyone remains health!

Thanks Eric! You are correct on the sleep. Not only are more hours "found" in a 24 hour cycle....but you also learn to sleep hard and fast. Cause you never know when the little critters will need you to wake up. :)

Who needs uninterrupted sleep anyway. :)
