Number 11 ... A New Grandson

Curlymop is so pleased to be a big sister.  Her baby brother, Squeak, was born on June 8, 2012 weighing 8 pounds 13 ounces.

He gave us a big scare when he entered the world -  breathing problems.  Fortunately, he was in a hospital that had a superb medical staff that figured out the problem. Within 16 hours he was back in his mother's arms.

Because of that early complication he has seen his pediatrician twice since birth.  On day four they noted that he weighed almost 9 pounds.  Then on day ten he had grown to 10 pounds 8 ounces.  Newborns rarely sustain their birth weight the first week, and often lose weight.    I've accused his "mama" (my daughter) of being  a Jersey Girl.  If you know anything about butter fat, you'll know I'm not referring to any of those reality shows.




 We are all very happy.

Ah glad he is here safely..Squeak I love his name! Curlmop looks happy and I hope you made it there in time for the birth! Congrats to all!
Little boys can sometimes be real turds when it comes to breathing on their own..some are just real lazy..and it takes them time to come around. I am glad it is all resolved.
Jersey Girl..poor thing..but wow he is really growing fast so she must have great butter fat!!:)

Yay! Congratulations! I reckon I was a jersey girl. My oldest gained so much weight the 1st 2 weeks, he was off the growing charts.

I was often asked (when my son was an infant) if I had butter fat or cream in my milk. Congrats to all!
