Merrick Lux Torres was born at 5:51pm on May 29, 2010. He weighed 7lbs 4oz and is 21 inches long. Delivery went great. When the pushing started, it only took 6 mins. He is so handsome and is a joy. It took him a short while to get the hang of b/f, but he's doing it now like a champ. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"><br><br>
I will post my birth story and pictures tomorrow, once I get some rest.<br><br><span style="color:#FF0000;">Merrick is doing well today. His blood sugar has dropped a couple of times & we are having to feed him through a tube taped to my chest while I breastfeed, but he's still feeding like a champ. The nurses & pedi says the lack of sucking is normal, since he is a preemie. But he's doing great. All the nurses are in love with him.<br>
We will post new pics whenever we can. Right now we're just trying to get rest & spend time with friends & family.<br><br>
I know I said I would post our birth story today, but I lied. LOL The day has been busy...but I will post it as soon as I get a chance and after I get some rest.</span><br><br>
Now I'm not sure if this is going to work, since it's on my DF's FB page, but I figured I would try it. Here is the link to some of the pictures that were taken yesterday. I hope y'all enjoy. I will try to post more later.<br><br><a href="http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=113417078686448#!/album.php?aid=2064723&id=1299203951&ref=mf" target="_blank">http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gi...9203951&ref=mf</a>
