Announcing Josiah Patrick!

Josiah Patrick was born 2/29/12 at 6:49am. He was the 9th baby born in our hospital that morning! Josiah weighed 8lbs, 3oz, and was 20.5 inches long.

Labor was about 8 hours, delivery was relatively easy - only 2 pushes! He looks a lot like his daddy!

He had a high biliruben count, so we had several heel sticks over the last week, and had to have him on an ultraviolet light for a few days. But that's all worked out now.

He's still in the sleepy newborn phase at only a week old. I don't actually get to hold him much. The other children fight a lot over who gets to hold him next, and how many times one child has got to hold him vs. another child.
