Welcome, Lucien!

Lucien James
Born 9:02 am, September 8, 2011
Five and a half weeks premature
6 lbs 6 oz
18 ½ inches long

We are so happy to welcome our new baby boy!

Just a quick post to let the world know that he has arrived, and then I am back to enjoying my time with the little man. Since he was premature I had to give birth to him in a hospital, but it was a beautiful, natural, entirely drug-free birth under the care of my midwives. His birth was amazing, but was followed by a harrowing (for his mother) six-day precautionary stay in the NICU. He had a slight case of jaundice and the doctors were worried about his ability to nurse at such a young age. But he is healthy, growing, nursing like a champ, and finally, home! For now we are simply enjoying being together, but watch for his birth story, coming in the near future.
