Day 2

Duncan was born at 23:50 on June 25th (halfway to Christmas!), which was two weeks early. He weighed 3160 grams (6 lb, 15.5 oz) and is 48 cm long.

Duncan currently spends most of the day (at least when I see him) sleeping, squeeking, and staring back at us. I’m sorry I did not put a picture of Duncan with his eyes open but honestly, there are none yet since we just sit there looking back; too engrossed to grab the camera. Maybe tomorrow.

Mother and son are doing great and are expected home tomorrow. Sorry this post is so short but I should get some sleep.

Thank you for all the wonderful comments. I can’t wait until Duncan can read all the wonderful welcomes!

    Again… all I can say is wow. He is beautiful. And this is a bit spooky – Duncan and Devon were EXACTLY the same weight at birth! To the half ounce! And Devon was 10 days overdue. So just goes to show you… no point in keeping them in that long! Glad to hear you are all recovering well and resting when you can. Thanks for the update. We’re thinking about you lots.

    I second Leah. Actually, I think he looks like Trish’s Bompa, but all little babies look like elderly men, don’t they? =)

    Glad to hear everyone is doing well. The ‘baby stares’ take a while to wear off – I know my first nephew had a whole room full of us riveted for an entire Christmas holiday!

  11. Leah says:

    I think he looks like Trish. What do mom and dad think?
