Cooper James Barr

Was born June 1 at 7:49 pm. He was a shocking 9 lbs 1 oz and 21 3/4inches long. I now realize that I married a woman made of steel as she had a natural birth with no medication. We all now know who wears the pants in the family! Cooper had some respiratory complications at birth as he inhaled a large amount of meconium. He was transferred to the neonatal ICU in Sacramento and has been making great strides in his recovering. He is now off the ventilator and our next hurdle is to get him to start eating. We hope to be going home in 7-10 days. Linds is doing fantastic and is recovering rather well. Updates to follow.

He is getting oxygen and antibiotics right now...
The nurses already have given him a stuffed doggie to keep him company.

Congratulations! I think I was more scared during the birth of Ty than Heidi was. But it was amazing and so exciting. The excitement lasts a while and then the sleepiness sets in....hopefully Cooper sleeps better than Ty did.
