Baby Russell arrived, 03/20/05
« on: March 20, 2005, 11:39 PM »
Just a quick post to say we had our baby today, late from the due date of the 16th.

We had a son at 7:30am, 9lbs 10oz! This kid is huge, way bigger than our first two.

No solid name yet, but we're almost set.

There were some complications early on with oxygen saturation for him, but he's been off breathing devices since 5pm today and we expect to have him in our room in the morning.

More on all this later, thanks to all those who have pm'd through the week. The implications of what it means to have two sons and lightsabers around the house is just beginning to sink in...

Cute Kid
Congrats on the second one. Glad to hear all is good.
Well i can say we beat that , both my kids came in over 10 pounds and were delivered natural , my wife is a baby machine, well thats what the doctors said.
The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

Thanks, everyone!

Thanks Jesse. This is actually number three, we have an almost 5 y.o. daughter, a 2 1/2 y.o. son and now this guy. Savannah and Leif love Star Wars, so as long as we can work on sharing this baby should fall in line with the other two.

Actually, now that I think of it, I remember your family picture a few months ago with the 2 kids.  My bad. 

3 kids now.  I've got one, but I think someday I'd like to have 3 as well.  Not sure why, it just feels right.   :)

Congrats, Dp!  I trust the delivery went well, and mom and baby are both doing a-ok?  Boy, the dog's really gonna be pissed off now...   ;)

This is actually number three, we have an almost 5 y.o. daughter, a 2 1/2 y.o. son and now this guy.

So is that gonna be his name for a while, 'til you figure out a better one...  "This guy"...?   8)  Nameless, or not, congrats to the growing Russell family.   8)



P.S.  Paul is not Deanpaul's middle name, fellas.  It's PART OF his FIRST name...   :-*

Yeah, this is how she took the news when we told her we were going to have another baby... [actually, she's sweet. No problems whatsoever with the kids - this picture was all in the timing as she sneezed.]

It's true. Deanpaul. No space, no hyphen–all one word. Capital D, lowercase p.

Yup, mom and baby are doing well. Everything went well, and the delivery itself was fast. That's one theory why "this guy" might have had trouble with oxygen saturation - not enough time being squeezed by contractions to get all the liquid out of his lungs. I guess it's not uncommon in shorter deliveries...
