Welcome to the world Carver James!!!

He's finally here!!!!! He was born after a very long labor on Friday June 19th at 12:59am. He weighed 7lb 6oz and was 20in long. He scored a 9/9 on his Apgar tests and is perfect. The Dr had to use a vacuum to get him out so he has a couple small bruises on his head but other than that, he's healthy.

We stayed in the hospital for about 36hrs for recovery. While we were there, they checked his weight again (he dropped 4oz - totally normal), gave him his first bath, did a PKU test and a hearing/neurological test. The hearing test checks to make sure he can hear. The average score is a 160 and Carver scored 263. It measures the pathways in the brain so the lab tech that did the test said that he should be really smart. :)

Here's some pictures from the birth and first day...

Hooked up to all the monitors.

Not the best one of me but its the first picture taken of Carver.
