New baby Sam made his appearance Monday night a little after 10 eastern time! And what a coming out that was. Mom went into labor after her dr. appointment and went to the hospital around 6 in the evening, things went pretty fast for a while there. They thought he’d be born by 8 o’clock but a shoulder or something got stuck and she had a bit of a time having him. I think it had a lot to do with his size……he weighed 10 pounds 5 ounces and was 23 inches long! Longest baby they’d had born at this particular hospital. They seem to be doing good for now, although they were worried some about his shoulder (it’s ok). The nurse told us they’ll have to check his blood sugar and get a certain reading 3 times and then they’ll know that is ok, first time was good so we’ll find out in the morning how the other readings went. Kat also told me the dr. said that if they had done a sonogram on her at her appointment and they’d known he was that big they would have sectioned her! At this point she doesn’t want to go through that again….hoping she feels better when we see her on Tuesday.
We’ll take Katelyn in to see her new brother! I’ve been taking pictures and if I can get them sized, I’ll put some up. I’m sorry I haven’t been able to visit you all, we’re just a teeny bit busy at the moment but I did want to thank you all and tell you Sam is here!

    Welcome to the world, Sam! And way to go, Kathryn!

    Holy smokes…she’s so tiny to have been hauling around (and getting out) a baby that size, huh?

    Hope the other tests come out fine! Can’t wait for updates!

    Congrats on the new “little” guy! That’s a lot of baby! I got caught on the way out when I was born & had a dislocated hip. I wasn’t nearly that big though. Barely seven pounds.

    I was reading right along here in my house all by myself and I am telling you when I read how big that boy was I yelled OUT LOUD, “OH MY GOSH!!!”

    I cannot believe that. Tell Kat my largest baby was half that size!!! In fact, my sons were about 3 months old at that size. Amazing!

    So glad to hear Kat is ok. Bless her little heart. What an experience. And we’ll be hoping things go VERY well with little … I mean … sweet Sam. Not so little!

    Thanks for posting. Can’t wait for pictures.
