John Preston Mizerany

Finally our little guy has arrived, and I must admit that he was worth the wait! John "Preston" blessed us on September 16th at 7:23 AM, and we couldn't be happier! He weighed in at a whopping 8 lbs 5 oz and was 20.5 inches long with some brown hair.

So far things have been going very well...he is a great eater, his digestive system is working well, and he loves to sleep. He also has been visited and cuddled by all of his family...which he loves. I think he has been held most of his life so far, but you can't spoil a newborn, right?

Big sister Bennett was somewhat oblivious to his arrival Tuesday. She barely looked at him, and was much more interested in operating mommy's hospital bed and IV pump. However, yesterday (day 2) she came in and pointed at him, and actually gave him a couple of her signature open mouth kisses. She is otherwise having fun spending time with her Nene and Poppy. She has been spoiled with attention thus far, but we'll see how she reacts once we come home. Only time will tell, but we are optimistic since she is so young.

We are all doing well, and expected to go home and get settled into our new routine on Friday.

Congratulations! He is so beautifully handsome. Love his name. Does his name have family connections? I am guessing it does. Two beautiful and healty children. Congrats again!
