Drake is here!

Drake James was born at 8:39 am today weighing in at 9 pounds, 15 ounces (this is the exact weight I was at birth, too!). He is 22.75 inches long and just absolutely precious!

His blood sugar has been low since birth, and after my second unsuccessful attempt at bringing it up with breast milk (or lack thereof), they decided to take him to NICU for feedings and closer monitoring. Currently, we are waiting on his most recent levels to determine if he can come out and see us, or if he will have to stay in the NICU and receive IV nutrition for at least the next 24 hours.
Big sister is thrilled! I'll share more details and pictures about his birth later :)
