Welcome Little Man

Well...I got my wish and had a May baby. Grayson David was born on Saturday evening May 31st at 11:20 p.m. He was 7 lbs 13 oz and 20 inches long. Currently he's sporting blue eyes like his mama, but we imagine they'll turn to brown like his daddy over time.



Keep this little guy in your prayers cause he is currently in the NICU because of issues with fluid in his lungs. It is quite frustrating to be sitting in my hospital room minus him. Not quite how I imagined things. But...he does seem to be improving and we've both gotten to hold him today which was wonderful.

It looks like he will be in here for a few more days than me, but I'll have more info on all this later as we get more updates from the doctor. And...I'll have some better pics too once we have the right cord for the camera.

I'll post more on my water breaking and labor later on, but wanted to let everyone know he's arrived for now and get you all to pray and cross your fingers for him. Thanks!

I know exactly what you're going through with having your little guy in the NICU. When my baby was born last weekend, I experienced the same thing.

My prayers are with your little man.
