Well our little Badenator has made quite an entrance into the world, and I haven't been on a computer since he got here.
I'm not done writing out the full story, but here are some quick details for those of you just dying to know. All the pictures are from instagram.

Baden Perry arrived at 12:20 am on December 9th.

He was 7lbs, 5oz and 19 inches long. He came with a full head of hair!

I got to hold him for a little while after he was born, but he wasn't crying very much and they ended up taking him away to the NICU.
Me getting to hold Baden for the second time, after they whisked him away to the NICU.

This was taken last week. He had TTN, pneumonia and jaundice. 

He has blue eyes and a cute little mohawk. 

Our most recent update is that his lungs are clear of pneumonia and TTN, the jaundice is long gone. He's a champion breastfeeder, and is doing a good job of gaining weight. He's been in the NICU for 9 days now, and can come home just as soon as he's been weaned off the oxygen. Mack still hasn't gotten to meet Baden-- siblings are banned from the NICU during RSV season.

Here's Baden and Daddy just last night. 

Pin It!
