    He was delivered Sunday Sept 1 around 9:30 ish pm. He was about six weeks premature, so we were all a little worried. I was keeping it together for my wife's sake. My wife had to be induced due to reasons of her health.

    Despite being so premature he's perfectly healthy. 5 lbs, 2 ozs. He's 18" long. His lungs are strong and healthy and his oxygen intake was at 100&% when he arrived.

    Couldn't be happier. His name is Jack. He's definitely a fighter and stubborn. I'll post pics in a few days. They're on my camera and I'm still in the hospital so I can't upload them yet.

    I'm one happy poppa.

    Wow. Big baby for 6 weeks early. That's a good sized little guy. Despite all the stress I'm glad everything worked out well. Congratulations on your healthy baby boy.

    Thanks Winds. Yes, he IS big, all things considered. There are plenty of full-term babies being born who are that weight or less. :eek:

    The nurses kept telling us "no one told him he is pre-term. He's just like every healthy full-term that is born."
