Baby Riley

In case you havent been keeping up with my Facebook statuses, my sister here in SLC had her baby on Dec 6th at 2:15pm. He weighed 2 lb 1oz. They named him Riley Zane. My sister had no idea she was even in labor but ended up going to the hospital in a lot of pain. She was dilated to a 9 and ended up having to have an emergency C-section.  The full story will be on her blog sometime soon I hope. If it was ME I would have it posted already! The doctors dont know why he came so early but he is doing really well for only being 26-1/2 weeks old! His due date was in March so he will be in the hospital until then or maybe get to come home a couple weeks sooner. Laura got to leave the hospital on Saturday evening but has gone every day so far to visit Riley. 

I wish I could post a picture of him on here but Laura wants to be the first to post pictures online and she is taking her own sweet time! Again, If it was ME I'd have pictures posted last week. Ha!

Anyways, Riley is doing great, can breathe pretty well on his own and is drinking the milk from Laura already even though the nurses were going to wait until he was 32 weeks, they decided to give it a try and he is drinking and digesting it pretty well so this is good! He has really long fingers and legs. They havent measured him officially yet but he looks to be about 12 inches long. He has short dark hair that looks like it will be curly. It is going to be so fun to watch him grow!
