Wow

I have had Blogger open for the last 7 weeks intending to write my He's Here post. But it seems that every time I grab the laptop he needs something....I suppose that's the fun of a newborn.
Oh well! Thanks for your patience if you have been waiting for the announcement here!

And without further ado, here is Kieran Richard Latour!!!
After 37 hours of contractions we went to the hospital and after 3 monitored contractions there they did an emergency c-section. He was holding his umbilical cord in both hands behind his shoulders and was squeezing it during contractions, cutting off his oxygen supply. After a whirlwind of activity he arrived and started to cry right away. He was 6 lbs, 10 oz and 21.5" long. Born at 11:28pm on May 12, 2012, making him the perfect Mother's Day present (Mothers day was May 13th!)
After 3 days in the hospital we went home to our apartment to start life as a family. Both sets of grandparents came to visit and we were lucky enough to have Jon's Mom for 3 weeks. We are just starting to get into a bit of a rhythm now but Kieran certainly keeps us on our toes!
He is almost double his birth weight already- 12lbs 2 oz at last week's Dr appt. Today we get to celebrate Canada Day and see what he does when the fireworks are going off!!!

Congratulations! He's beautiful. I'm glad you are doing well. Sorry for the scare. I've never heard of a baby holding on quite like that before.

Thanks for sharing. Enjoy snuggling that little one.
