Maddox is here!!!

We didnt think he would be here this early but he is here! Maddox Lee was born on May 2 2006 at 4:40pm. He weighed 6lbs 2 oz and was 18 1/2 inches long. We are absolutely thrilled! He is in the NICU for an infection though. He is doing great though! He is a strong boy and is fighting this infection great! We got to see him yesterday and he looks so beautiful! He was on a ventilator but was removed from it yesterday. Yay!! Now he just has a nasal canula for a little extra oxygen. We got to hear his beautiful cry!! Wow, we never thought we would be so excited to hear a baby cry! It was music to our ears! We also got to change his diaper and wipe off his face and arms a little too! It was so much fun! His nurses are great and try to let us touch him and help out as much as we can. We cannot hold him yet because of a very important IV in his arm (the one he gets his antibiotics from), but the nurse lets us help move and lift him whenever we can. They are going to start feeding him today. Jamie has been pumping since birth so he is going to get his momma's milk which will be great for him especially since he has an infection. She cant nurse him yet because she cant hold him but hopefully in a few days they will let her start. We are going to see him again today and hope to spend a little more time with him.
Jamie is recovering great from her C-section. God has definately been with us through the recovery. She is taking it easy and resting a lot. Brian has been a great support and helps out so much!
God has been so good to us and we are so blessed to have this little boy. We are staying positive through this whole situation and we know God is in control. We appreciate everybody's prayers and would like for you to keep praying for him. We will keep updates coming through this blog so you can pass on the link! Hopefully we will have another update this afternoon or this evening. We love you all!

I teared up at the part about getting to hear him cry and helping change his diaper and stuff. That's awesome. You two will be (and already are) great parents.

He's beauiful!!!! Just wanted to let you know we are thinking and praying for little Maddox (love the name) Jamie don't forget to take care of yourself.. Maddox needs you healthy. I know how hard it is not to be with him at all times. He gets his long toes from me. He does have a little of us in him. Love ya'll Katrina
