Kanen has arrived

Kanen (pronounced Cannon) Blake has arrived, 8 days early. Born June 16 at 12:37pm weighing in at 8 pounds 4 ounces and 20 1/2 inches long. Totally different birth experience than what I had with my daughter - much harder. I have to type up a birth story yet, kind of hard to do while at the hospital, no sleep, and too many visitors. Plus, he was in and out of the nursery all day yesterday because his temp is 96 and they couldn't get it to come up at all. Many rounds of antibiotics. Now we are dealing with low sugar. He latched on very well right after delivery but has been sleeping so much that he won't eat. They tried to feed him bottle in the nursery (which I wasn't happy about since I am breastfeeding but what do you do) but he didn't want that either. So hoping he will be awake today to eat. Was able to BF him about 20 minutes at 11 PM last night. Its 5 a.m. and he's still sleeping.
I will post birth story here when I have one and will post pictures too.

Yay.... Welcome to the world Kanen. How are you feeling mama? Sorry he is so sleepy. Sofia was the same way. Hope he wakes up and eats a large amount for you today.
