Welcome Baby Benjamin!

October 9, 2009 2 comments

Benjamin Alec finally graced us with his presence yesterday afternoon, following a 2-day long induced labor and subsequent C-section (phew!).  Mother, father and baby are all doing well despite their excruciating exhaustion.

Congrats to new parents, Sara and Shawn – you two were definitely troopers!  Ben clocked in at 8 lbs., 11 oz. and 21.5 inches long at 2 weeks late.

Now for a look at the handsome little fellow …

Welcome My New Nephew, Gus!

It’s official – little Rus Gus has finally made his debut into the world!  The blond Russel Augusten Nutter was born this afternoon, breathing his first fresh breath of air at 2:26 p.m.  That’s right, no more swimming around for the little guy.  And I must say, he’s quite a handsome little guy at that.  Though Gus was born via an unexpected C section due to his breech position, the operation went smoothly and Adrienne, Mac and the Gusbuster are all happy and well.

Some stats:

Birthday: July 7, 2009

Weight: 7 lbs. 7 oz.  (on 7/7!)

Length: 20.6 inches

Apgar Scores: 8 and 9 (same as Emmett’s!)

I’m super excited to be an aunt, and I can tell Emmett is chomping at the bit for his new cousin to be his playmate as well.  Congrats, Mac and A!  Can’t wait to meet the little trouble maker 🙂

Gus Nutter, Come on Down!

In proper Price is Right fashion, my soon-to-be nephew, Gus is “[coming] on down!”  I’m so excited!  My sister, Adrienne had a visit with her obstetrician this afternoon, and she is 1 cm dilated and 75% effaced.  Little Gus is on his way!  She is due July 11, so it could be any day now.  Some cool possibilities for Gus’ birthday:

  • July 4 – Adrienne’s husband, Mac’s birthday, not to mention Independence Day!
  • July 9 – Adrienne and Mac’s wedding anniversary (4 years)
  • July 16 – Emmett’s half birthday; the cousins would be exactly 6 months apart!

I’m thrilled to be a first time aunt once Gus arrives.  It’s so crazy to think that if Gus is born by July 16, I’ll be a first time mom and aunt all within 6 months!  Babies, babies, babies!

Enjoy this video (taken a month ago) of Adrienne’s nephew, Patrick, engaging in some prenatal care for baby Gus …

Adrienne and Mac are heading to their friend’s wedding this Friday.  Maybe some wedding dancing will induce labor …

Age Timer: 23 weeks, 5 days
