Arrival

TA DA! little Baby Dyer, Basking in the Heat lamp at the nursery. Hes probably about an hour old at this point. He likes to stretch out, and lay flat, he really looked like he was sun bathing. Hes super sturdy. The nurse commented that he looks and feels like hes a few weeks old. He actually looks different already from birth though. He was "ready" was another nurse comment, his skin was dry, fingers nails long. Hes a good eater as far as we can tell. The name issue still remains, however we are leaning toward James Kelly.

Stats:
  • 7 pound 13 ounces
  • 20.5 inches long
  • dark hair (fairly full head of it)
  • Born around 2:30 am January 19
  • Approx. 12.5 hours of labor

Mom is doing great. She has already been walking around. Definitely in pain but happy, she is currently asleep. I'm amazed with all the knowledge she has when talking with the nurses and doctors. All the reading has payed off.

Congratulations Lauren and Shane, cant wait to see more pictures. He is so cute. The best is when they are sleeping on top of you with their legs tucked under, it is so peaceful and comfortable. A natural heating pad.
Love,
Jessica

Hooray! Soren's playmate is here! Soren and James/Chase are just one month and 4 hours apart.
Your boy looks so healthy and strong! Jo and I are so happy for you.
Little babies are the most powerful conduits of spiritual light I've ever experienced. Get ready for a sore neck from constantly staring at him when he's in your arms. You simply can't get enough.
Congrats Team Dyer!

Cute! Congrat's guys! I enjoy the healthy size too! It always fascinates me seeing them just a few days old and thinking, "how did they fit in me?!" Enjoy the rest in the hospital--it'll be the best sleep you'll get for awhile!
