Welcome home David!

He's here and healthy, just a little (ok a LOT) early! Born 3-11-11 @ 8:13 am, 3 lbs. 8 oz. He was on a venitalor, but they took him off after only 12 hours and he's been doing great since then. He came out screaming and didn't stop for awhile so we knew was a fighter. They put in a PICC line yesterday and also started him on the billi lights, but that's all pretty routine for a premie. Every doctor/nurse who works with him says he doesn't act like he's little, so we're hoping he takes after his big brother and chunks up fast so we can bring him home.
Here are a few pics!

gosh he is SO tiny! congrats larsiepoo, i hope he chunks up fast, too, but not too fast. when my sister had evie, she was like 6-7 weeks early and when i held her it was like holding a little doll baby. beyond adorable.

He is beautiful! I hope he gets to go home with you soon. When we brought Logan home he was only about 4 1/2 pounds. I'm amazed babies so tiny can be so strong.

He is so handsome. Laura was amazing with this whole episode of driving herself to the hospital,discovering she was actually close to delivering. They called we the grandparents, but slept through the call. Josh keeps trying and he makes it to the hospital. Unable to be in the room of delivery because of all the extra nurses, etc. we were able to hear those first yells and they were strong. Love that little guy! David Joshua how perfect.
