Just wanted to quick pop in and let you all know I delivered Kiefer Ryan last night (32 weeks 4 days) at 8:25pm. He weighs 4 pounds and is 17 inches long. He will be in the NICU for a few weeks learning how to eat and breathe and so far he's doing fantastic.

 

I'll update some more later.

Holy cow, it's starting! Congratulations! Love the name, and so glad he's doing well--overjoyed for you! I know someone whose daughter was born at just under 33 weeks, and she is doing wonderfully now at four months old. I'm sure Kiefer will be as well.

Welcome to the world, Keifer!  I think this is April's first singleton.  I'm so glad to hear that he's doing well.

Congrats, mama!!  I think baby Kiefer may be our 3rd baby -- I think a twin mama may have had her babies too.  How cute is he??  I must admit that, although I know it's best for them to stay in till term, I've always wanted to meet a little tiny baby.  They must just be the sweetest little things.  

 

I hope you're feeling well too, mama.  Congrats again and may you both be feeling strong and ready to come home soon.  

 

p.s I love the name too!
