Emma seems to have taken to Cameron almost immediately. She wants to lick him all the time and is sometimes startled at every little noise he makes. The cats don't seem too affected by his arrival at all. We've had a number of friends and family come by the house who can now finally hold our little man. I think the biggest adjustment for Becca and I are each of us trying to get some sleep while feeding and changing Cameron every three hours!!! Our lives certainly have now changed forever!!

Rebecca and I prior to all the excitement!!
Rebecca with Cameron just after he was born.
Cameron a few hours after being born.
So, our weekend was spent in the hospital seeing Cameron in the NICU every three hours, visiting with family. My parents got in Friday morning from Reno where they now live. We also exchanged hundreds of text messages, emails and phone calls with friends around the country and world. Rebecca got discharged from the hospital on Sunday, but Cameron had to stay as he needs to be eating consistently for us to take him home. He's a strong boy and doing very well. Everything else has checked out fine and he is getting stronger everyday. Rebecca is recovering well and happy to be able to get into her normal clothes again. We're both enjoying being able to sleep regular hours at night, because we both know that once he's home that won't be the case.
Rebecca also had a baby shower planned for last weekend which got cancelled and can hopefully be rescheduled very soon. We greatly appreciated all the flowers, cards, phone calls, warm thoughts and prayers as welcome this new little bundle of joy into our lives.

I was hoping to get him to at least 6 pounds, but we may not quite make it.
Scott and I attend childbirth classes every week, wondering if each class will be our last. Will we even need the breathing techniques, or will he do a c-section?
And in the end, none of that matters. We just want him here.

So as of today, I've been instructed to cut back on my work hours and spend the rest of the time on bed rest. I'll also be starting weekly visits and bi-weekly non-stress tests.
We don't really know what's going on. All of his other measurements are on track. I'm just trying to eat more and gain weight in hopes that he will, too.
We'll keep you posted!

Today, marks the One Month Anniversary of when I married the love of my life, Rebecca. It doesn't seem like it has already been a month and yet so much has happened in the last year and half. We still have so much more ahead of us. When I think about how much my life has changed I'm just amazed. Everything I've always longed for....a loving woman to call my wife, a home and a chance to build a family have all come true in the last 18 months all because I found Rebecca. It's amazing how completely I am in love with her.
Our wedding day wouldn't have been what it was without everyone who came and shared in our day!! Next up is our baby boy who is scheduled to make his arrival in just a couple of months!!! We can't wait!!!
