We were going to have the baby soon....but the ultrasound revealed he was breech (I knew it!). 2 hours after checking in, the C-section was complete and Wesley James was born! 5 pounds 2 ounces.
Since he's 5 1/2 weeks early - he hasn't developed the drive to eat as much as he would if he were a couple of weeks further along. So a feeding tube was recently put in to supplement any nutrional needs he doesn't get during breast/bottle feeding. He's doing great though and we're hopeful he'll be out of the Special Care Nursery within a week or two.
On the operating table
Our baby boy with his little breech legs/hips...they've since calmed down a lot.
Our precious family- thank you Lord for a safe delivery of our son, I'm overcome with love for this sweet little boy, our little Wes.
Liquid gold- my first 50 ml pump!
Wesley's first bath- 11/19/08, today he also got his IV out, only mother's milk to nurture him from now on (until he starts solids, of course)
