Welcome, Cyrus Xavier!

Cyrus Xavier joined us on 11/14 at 2:20 pm, weighing 9 lbs, 11 oz.

By the time we got to the hospital, we were already very close. I’m not one to go into too much detail…but did you know an epidural can stop working just as the baby is ready to be born? Yup.

Other than that, it was a fairly routine birth. We were out of the hospital about 24 hours later. He did have a tongue tie, which made latching tough. However, we had it snipped and the nursing is going more smoothly now.

He regained his birth weight and then some within a week and everyone is healing well.

His siblings are so happy to meet him and proudly show off their baby to everyone we meet.

      Funny thing is, he’s the “runt” of the boys…but I didn’t feel it with the other ones. Thanks for the well-wishes!
