I’m Here! May 30, 2008

Posted by xandergordon in Uncategorized.

Finally, I’m here!  I was born via C-Section at Sunrise Children’s Hospital in Las Vegas on May 28th and 8:21pm.  I weighed in at 7 pounds and 12 ounces and I’m a very long 21″.  I have very, very big hands and feet.  Dad took this picture just about 15 minutes after I was born — he’s taking lots and lots of pictures that will be posted here as soon as mom and dad can get home this weekend.

Aunt Ashley helped mom figure out the breastfeeding thing.  Grandma Annie was there making mom laugh.  Rafe came for a visit too, but he wouldn’t change my diaper.

So far, everything is good.  Mom is breastfeeding me regularly, daddy is changing all my diapers (he thinks that meconium stuff could potentially solve the world’s oil supply problems), and I’m sleeping all the time.  My pediatrician gave me a completely clean bill of health.  I’m really looking forward to getting home on Saturday!

Congratulations on the arrival of your little boy wonder

Exhibits unequaled drooling and astonishing feats of cuteness –
Original! One of a Kind! Baldish!

Your very own amazing small miracle.

Xander, we wish you all the best in exploring the joys and wonders of life. You’ve got a great headstart: an idyllic property in which to roam and brainy parents to watch your every move… leave the debilitating sunshine of Vegas and visit Vancouver soon! xo
