Five Years Ago

...a beautiful baby boy joined our family. He gave us a little scare during delivery as there was some evidence of meconium when they broke my water. They brought in the NICU team to check him over. They gave him a good suctioning and said he was great. He was gone for his bath for what I believed to be a very long time, but we were more annoyed than worried. Before the nurse brought him back, she came in to deliver the news that they heard a heart murmur, but that it was very common and nothing to worry about. We had no reason to believe anything was wrong. We enjoyed the next two days with our new addition, so grateful for the smooth delivery and the fact that he was born at term (ON his due date, just like Mary Kathleen!) and was a very hearty 9 lbs. 2 oz. (also just like his sister, Mary Kathleen!). Here are some photo memories from that day:
