Welcoming Blake





Blake William Laudie joined our family on October 8, 2008. He weighed in at a solid 10 lbs and was 21 inches long. After about a week's stay in the NICU for stabilization in his blood sugar and oxygen saturation levels, resulting from an early bout with pneumonia, he was discharged yesterday, October 15. We're so happy to have him home with us. I'm sure more details will follow. Thanks to all for the notes, thoughts, and prayers that have been offered in his behalf this past week.

Jim and Em: We were hoping you would someday convert to the blogworld. We have missed y'all something fierce. We need some folk singing in our kitchen in the WORSE WAY! Congratulations on the newest addition. We had our little Anna in the NICU too so many years ago and it is so great to get them home. Our new son was 9lbs 7oz. And we thought he was huge.. you trumped us with the 10lbs. 4oz. We have a blog too at www.jamieandgina.blogspot.com.

Congratulations you guys! Wow 10 lbs thats amazing. Thats only 1 lb shy of what the twins weighed altogether! I'm glad he's doing better and that everyone is adjusting. Good Luck!

Congratulations again! Anna is sure excited to have another little cousin. I can't wait to meet little Blake when we come up next time. And I must say that I'm a little jealous--this is the 2nd time that I've been about 6 weeks behind you, Emilie. How about I get to have the baby first next time? ;) Just kidding. Glad you're all home again!
