Axton was born on Monday, September 17th, 2007. The doctors guessed he would weigh in the high 7's but ended up weighing a whopping 8 lbs 12 oz and was19 inches long. Labor went well although it lasted almost 17 hours!
The proud papa!!
On Tuesdsay we were planning on going home that night but Axton had other plans for us. His bilirubin count came in pretty high for how young he was so he had to be kept under the lights until Wednesday morning and then we were allowed to go home. Everyone was surprised that he had jaundice because he sure didn't look like it. It was hard for Mommy to not have him with her since he had been with her since he was born. She went through more withdrawals then he did!! It makes for cute pictures though!
Finally on Wednesday we got to go home! Daddy bought him the cute doggy. We'll see how attached he gets to hit since Greg seems to think it needs to go every with us!!
