Maddux James has ARRIVED!!

So sorry for being MIA since Monday
Have been sooo busy learning the ins and outs of being a brand new mommy!!
Thought I would catch a quick post while he is being assessed this morning
we are getting released sometime today so hopefully once I am home &
get breastfeeding down a little more my post will be much more regular...
but for what you have all been waiting for...

9:10 PM
7 lbs. 6 oz
19.5 in.

We are all doing soooo well!!
Breastfeeding went awesome right after birth--
was crazy hard yesterday but he was really sleepy because of getting circumsized
Then his late feeding last night--3 am went AMAZING
so did the one at 6:30 this morning hopefully it stays this way...
He needs rewarded for trying or he gives up and doesn't like it so we have been feeding him a little formula while breastfeeding with a tiny syringe
but he has all the techniques down great he just has to be a little more patient so
We would love some prayers that his breastfeeding continues in a good way! :)

--doc just came in and said he looks great & is weighing 6 lbs 15 oz. now so he said thats normal so yay!--

Hope you all are having a wonderful week!! :)
