Baby Luke

He's here! Luke Emerson arrived at 12:26pm on Wed. May 25 (our anniversary). I went straight to labor and delivery after my doctors appointment and had my c-section an hour and a half later. I was much more coherant for this surgery than the last, making it a little scarier. Plus, after Luke came out I got to watch the nurses trying to regulate his breathing, and then make the descion to move him to the NICU. Not very fun to watch. He only spent a day and a half there... for IV antibiotics, fluids and breathing treatments. When I finally got to keep him in my room I was so happy and relieved. He is a very sweet little boy, so far a lot like Claire was. Very quite and laid back, but Luke seems a lot more snuggley. We came home on Sunday afternoon, and are just trying to rest up. Here are some pictures of Claires new baby brother. PS he weighed 6# 13 oz and was 19 1/2 inches long.

Congratulations! I am so happy for your little family! Luke is a stud like is old man. We are really feeling what you described on your May 24th post. Our little girl is due on the 27th of this month and probably already weights 6.5#. I will have to let you know how having a baby in Brazil goes. This is the c-section capital of the world!
God bless your family,
Sascha
