Meet Mason Eli

 

Our precious  baby boy arrived Monday night at 8:14 p.m.   He weighs  8 lb. 2 oz.  and is 20 1/2” long. He is absolutely perfect.

Alex was a trooper. She was in labor for 17 hours and pushed the last two with the epidural turned completely off!  Right before taking her for a C-section, they offered to use the vacuum.  Thankfully, it worked, but baby Mason has a big,  red puffy spot with blisters on his precious noggin"’ from the suction.  The pediatrician doesn’t seem overly concerned about it.  

Alex had a fever during the last 8 hours of labor and has been on an IV antibiotic drip. 

I am so thankful for his safe arrival.

Alex is going to be a good mommy!

 

Wednesday update:

Mason just came back from having a circumcision.  It went well…he is glad it’s over!!!!

Alex will be released tonight at 9:00 p.m.  She has to stay on the IV antibiotics for a full 48 hours.    All three of us will be glad to get home.

Papa is on his way to meet his grandson.  I can’t wait to see them together. 

God is so good!
