bauer gregory day is here!!!


on thursday august the thirtieth at 10:06 am, bauer gregory day made his debut. he weighed 8 pounds 11 1\2 ounces (i want credit for that extra half ounce i had to carry around) and was 20 1/2 inches long. his head circumference was a whopping 14 inches!! (can you say thank god for c-sections?) he had a bit of trouble deciding to leave his comfy home inside his mommy, but after a lot of tugging and pushing and an intervention by mean mr. forceps, he finally emerged from his mommy's pelvis. upon his arrival he took a great big breath, and unfortunately instead of gulping air, got a big mouth full of mommy's extra amniotic fluid (instead of the normal 750cc mommy had around 2000+cc). even though he made a nine on the apgar scale he began to breathe a little erratically and quickly (called tachypnea) and was taken to be observed by the near term nursery. upon further inspection it was decided he had aspirated, and would need to be admitted to the nicu. even though we were very nervous, bauer showed his true clark-day genes and in just five days was released to go home...other than a little jaundice he is perfectly fine. now enough with all this typing...here are the exclusive pics you have been waiting for...
