    Arrival

    Yesterday at 9:44 am our little boy joined our happy family.

    Elijah James was 5lbs 1oz and 19 inches long.

    Mom is great -- only 4 hours of active labor and pushed for only 30 minutes.
    Not bad for a first time Mom.

    The induction started at about 10pm on the 7th.

    Everyone is healthy.

    Elijah's only issue is the jaundice so he was admitted today to stay under the lights.
    Not bad for being 5 weeks early.

    Eating ok and breathing great --

    We were very excited not to have to visit the NICU.

    Congratulations and welcome to Elijah James. I also love the name. A boy! I was sure it was a girl...but I didn't see the ultrasound...they never lie when it's a boy! Boys are so fun...full of energy and very different from girls (I am learning!). Enjoy!

    We arrived home on Sunday night and have been using a bili blanket

    Finally it looks like his levels are down so that is great news

    He is eating well and as is typical thinks night time is the best
