Mackinley James is here!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
On Monday July, 2nd at 12:05pm Mackinley James arrived. 9lbs 6ozs and 20.25inches (built like a block according to our OB). We ended up opting for a last minute repeat c-section, a choice I very happy about. Our stay in the hospital felt like a vacation for me. Unfortunately, after being released yesterday we retuned to the hospital today and Mac has been admitted to the NICU with an eye infection. He's on IV antibiotics and will be here for 2 days atleast. He's also got his days and night confused....so we're up aaaalllll night and he sleeps 4 hour stretches all day long. I wish I could sleep all day with him, but no luck with a non-stop 3-year-old at home!! Congrats to everyone else who has welcomed their new additions!
