Family, Friends, and Dog Friends,
Bradford Lowry Nelson was born at 9:53 pm on January 12th. He weighed 7 lbs, 5 oz and was 20.5 inches long. The labor ended up being a little bit difficult and therefore, Bradford has had to go to the nicu for some monitoring and oxygen. All initial reports are that he is going to be fine and is progressing really well. We will know a lot more in the morning ( am on the 13th) after he sees a neonatologist and will try and keep things updated here and on facebook.
As expected, Emily rocked labor like crazy and she is doing really well. We are praying that she will be able to breastfeed Bradford in the morning and we can get him transitioned out of the nicu quickly. Thank you so much for your prayers and love. We have felt overwhelmed today and are so excited to have this little man. We just need to get him out of the nicu so we can hold that baby!!!!
We don’t have a lot of pictures yet but here are two of baby Bradford moments after being born. Don’t worry he has a lot more color in his skin now.
