Baby Brayden

Things have been a little busy around here this week, thanks to the birth of my newest nephew. He was born via a scheduled c-section on Tuesday morning so I’ve been spending every free moment I have up at the hospital with his Momma. Last night I got to hold him for the first time and it was amazing. I am SO in love with that little guy already. I took advantage of the opportunity to wrap him up in the hat and blanket I made him and take a few hundred or so pictures of him. Here he is all snuggled up.

I also started yet another baby blanket while I was at the hospital waiting for him to arrive. I now have two of them going at once. I wonder which one I will finish first?

Take Your Nephew To Work Day

This post has absolutely nothing to do with the picture above but I wanted to share a little baby cuteness anyway. What I really want to tell you about is that baby Brayden’s big brother Dylan blogged for me today over at Tot TV Watch.  Today is “Take Your Daughters/Sons To Work Day” so I adopted Dylan for the day and let him take over my blog to see what it’s all about.  He didn’t get to skip out of school for the day, but I would love to be able to show him lots of nice comments when I go up to visit tonight.  Please go check it out.

Since I don’t have the time or energy to keep updating a million blogs about the baby, I’m going to quit posting the info here and direct you to my sister’s blog, where I’ll be updating until she gets home or she tells me to stop.

You can get all the new baby goodness over here.

Who am I kidding?  I’ll still be posting about him here, just not the frequent “The baby had a bath.” kind of updates that I’ll be doing over there.

Baby Update

apr_07 482x

Just popping in for a quick update.  Brayden is doing much better tonight.  His breathing is getting better and the oxygen is down to 29% at the last report.  His mama got to go in and spend a few minutes with him this afternoon and plans to go back in tonight.  His two very proud big brothers got to go in and meet him as well.  His Aunt, on the other hand, still hasn’t been allowed in the nursery to get a good look at him and has had to settle for pictures.  Hopefully by tomorrow morning he will be able to go in the room with his mom and his aunt will finally get a chance to hold him and take a few pictures of her own.  In the meantime, you can check out the collection of pics that everyone else has taken today here.

I'm an Aunt Again!

Brayden Marshall arrived at 9:50 this morning, April 24th. He is 6 pounds, 10 ounces, and 20 inches long. Mom is doing great. Brayden is good, but was having a little bit of trouble breathing so he is under an oxygen hood to help him out. They are pretty sure that he just swallowed some fluid during delivery and aspirated and everything should clear up soon. It is just causing him to breath really fast and hard. He will have to stay in the nursery until he is breathing a little better. She will hopefully be able to go down to the nursery to see him as soon as she is able to get up. So far, only the dad and grandparents have been allowed to go see him.

Here are the few pictures we have so far.  Hopefully I’ll have a few more to put up tonight.
