He's here!

Daniel James Willford arrived safe and sound at 6:53pm, Tuesday, October 13th. He weighed a hefty 6lbs 15oz, and is 19 1/2 inches long.



I am typing this one-handed as I am currently a human pacifier. :-) After 2 somewhat restful days in the hospital, we came home this evening. I am so glad to be home! He's a great little nurser, has the cutest high-pitched little cry, and will very definitely be a little tow-head. Iwould take a better picture to post, but he doesn't enjoy being put down... Long fingers, pianist maybe? And long toes. And worth every cookie I've turned down in the last 6 months!
I was able to hold him immediately, they scored him on my tummy. He nursed right away with no problems. It took us a while to realize that he wasn't going to the NICU, and was having no problems breathing. We're so grateful that he's here and that everything went so well this time.

I'm so excited!!! He is adorable. I'm so happy for you that you got to take him home with you, instead of having to leave him in the NICU. That's so awesome. Get plenty of rest (if the boys will let you!).

He's adorable! Oh, I'm so excited for you...and now I'm getting even more impatient for my own to arrive, since I was measuring time by how much all of us had to go, forgetting that you were due 6wks before me! :(
