I am sure you have heard by now….SLOANE JEFFREY ROSE has arrived!
My friend Kelly was so excited that his birthday was going to be “mathematically correct”.
5+11 = 16
She’s funny! You would think she was a math teacher. Nope. Kindergarten.
But, then my friend Nina reminded me that Bents birthday was also mathematically correct.
1+10 = 11
P Man’s is not. So it doesn’t get too weird. Ha!
Oh we are dorks!
If you follow me on facebook or twitter then you didn’t miss much. Haha! I’m kinda open like that. Plus, it was my distraction from the pain.
I was shocked he was so small! I was expecting an 8 pounder! My guess was 8’2. I guess I was way off!
He’s such a peanut! But, then again, he was only 37 weeks 4 days! How weird that I predicted I would go in to labor on Sunday and deliver on Monday??? If you don’t believe me, read what I wrote last week HERE.
Sloane had to spend some time in the NICU immediately after he was born. They were worried his lungs were underdeveloped because he started what they call “grunting”. Apparently that can be a sign that his breathing is distressed.
I did get to hold him briefly and then they took him away. 🙁 They did a chest x-ray to make sure he didn’t have a hole in his lungs, which he did not (Praise God) and then they hooked him up to the c-pap machine for a little help breathing.
We were able to visit him in the NICU a few hours after birth.
He was so sweet and looked so different than our other two! We didn’t stay in the NICU too long because I was really feeling terrible. Actually, they barely got me wheeled out the NICU door and I was puking all the way back to the room. YUK! I will save the birth story for another post.
He is just doing wonderful now and we are so THANKFUL to God for another beautiful and healthy baby boy!
And I’m not gonna lie…he looks IDENTICAL to my baby pictures. Here is my husband’s latest tweet:
“So Sloane is definitely @houseofrose baby. He looks JUST like her & has her blood type. She didn’t get her girl but that’s pretty close :)”
Both of our other boys have J’s blood type. I am RH negative so it was strange that Sloane got my blood type. But, it kinda makes me smile.
We get to leave the hospital later today and we can’t wait to get home to P and Bents! They have been in good hands with Gigi and Papa, but mama is missing her kiddos!
Thank you for all the prayers and sweet comments! I hope to update again soon!
Here is our first video of the little man! This is when we got to visit him for the first time in the NICU!
