New Baby!

On December 29th, at 5:29pm PST, my nephew was born!

He weighed 5 lbs. 11 ounces and was 19 inches long.  My brother said that because of Baby Jayden’s natural birth, his cone head added a few inches to his length.  But I said  that it couldn’t have added more than an inch! 

Jimmy and Jennifer were vacationing in Tahoe when the baby decided he wanted out, so they had the baby in the Reno hospital (the Truckee hospital doesn’t have a facility for premie care.)  Baby Jayden was 6 weeks early!

Both mother and father are fine, but a little tired.  Since Baby Jayden was early, he had a few problems eating.  They tubed him and gave him formula only to have him throw it up again.  But today, Baby Jayden was able to eat on his own and keep most of the food down.  They’re trying different formulas to see if he’ll be able to keep that down. 

They’re keeping him in the hospital for a few more days to make sure he’s gaining weight, so the parents will be stay up in Reno and won’t be able to return home (To the SF Bay Area) until then. 

Hopefully now that he knows how to eat, he’ll put on weight quickly and they can all return home.  Send good thoughts their way for me!

I love this pic because it makes Jayden look like Your Ultimate Gaming Weapon.

What a cutie. Best thoughts to him and parents, and congratulations on becoming an aunt!

Lol! Jimmy says he's starting Jayden young with the nerd/geek training.

Congrats to family and baby, and to auntie, too! What a cutie-pie. When do you get to go see him? (after they're all home and rested, of course.)

Hi Linz! I go to visit them around Feb. It'll give them enough time to set up their house and get settled. They don't even have the room ready yet!

Hey, Auntie! Congrats to the whole family. He's a cutie-pie. And you really can't tell that he's got a cone head.

Jimmy says that the hat helps with the cone head look. He's also got a full head of black hair, but no eyebrows or eye lashes! Weird!

He is absolutely beautiful!!!! And ohhh, so much empathy for his worried parents right now (MrD was born early, at 5lbs 7oz, and has also had a hard time gaining weight)...I hope they find the right formula soon and he starts gaining weight nicely. Congratulations on such a gorgeous nephew!!!

He seems to be gaining weight, but the jaundice has hindered him a little bit. They want to tube feed him until he's a little bigger so that eating won't be such a chore for him. But he seems to be fine!
