He's Here!!!





William Emmett was born just after 9am this morning weighing in at 7 pounds 5 ounces and 19 inches long! He looks just like his big sister but has a bit more hair than she had at birth.

About an hour after Will was born he started having some minor breathing issues. We also received his CBC results around that same time and his platelet count is very low. These two issues landed him in the
NICU. Alex is with him (our NICU has all private rooms) while I sit in a hospital room by myself unable to move due to my c-section.

We'd appreciate any and all thoughts and prayers for Will. I'd love nothing more than to have him back in my room with me!
