Just a quick post from the hospital to let y'all know that * Forest Alexander * was born at 10:22 yesterday morning, after 5 hours of labor and 2 big pushes. He is quite a little man, weighing only 5 lbs, 15 oz. Because he's so small and seems to be spitting up a lot and not retaining blood sugars, they are taking care of him in the neonatal ward for now.
We are hoping to supplement his colostrum with high calorie formula until my milk comes in. It's been a bit of an emotional 24 hours, but we will do whatever it takes to make sure our boy is healthy and happy.
