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!

July 1, 2009 2 comments

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 …

A Shower for Adrienne and Gus

March 26, 2009 1 comment

So much to blog about!  It’s been a busy past couple weeks – a visit from my sister, Adrienne and my brother-in-law, Mac; a trip with Emmett to New Jersey for Adrienne’s baby shower; and Emmett’s first run-in with the extended family – second cousins, great aunts and uncles, great grandparents.  Plus, I’m back to work.  Rather than overwhelming you with the past couple weeks’ events in one long post, I’ll plan on a series of posts in the next few days.

Last Saturday we had Adrienne’s baby shower.  We went with a spa theme, complete with candles, a hand scrub, peppermint soaked washcloths, a cool spoon eye treatment and soothing, spa-like music.  Everyone had a great time, and Adrienne was showered with some great gifts for Baby Gus (and some gifts to pamper herself as well!).

Check out some of the day’s events in pictures …
