Wow...this is definitely one of those times where I wish I had kept up on this whole blogging thing... now I have tons and tons to write about with the birth of our precious little Conner boy, and everything that has gone on since. Just the super super basics for a minute, and then I hope I will be able to write out the details in the next few weeks.

Conner Paul Staten was born February 12, 2010 at 9:57pm. (He came 3 weeks early). Weight was 6lbs 2oz, length was 17 1/2 inches long. Conner has blond peach fuzz on his sweet little head and his heart defect is called Tetralogy of Fallot. He will have surgery to correct this defect when he is 4-6 months old. We did not know about his heart condition before he was born. Conner has been up at PCMC for 4 weeks, 1 day, but we are hoping that he gets to come home this weekend!!! He has to be able to take all his feedings orally and then we can bring his home! (right now he is taking about 1/2 from the bottle, and 1/2 through his feeding tube). We just started working on breast feeding with Conner, and I hope he can continue to get the hang of it!!!

Ok, that will have to do for now. Hopfully I will be back very soon to continue the story. :)

Glad Conner is doing good. Life will be easier once you can just breast feed him. He will be home any day now. Hang in there!
