Well, it’s been a couple weeks now since I’ve been able to get on here and write… and that’s when I had my new, beautiful, sweet baby boy, Colton! 6 lbs and 11 ounces, 20 1/2 inches long and 3 weeks early on June 22nd, Colton arrived and spent the first couple weeks of his life in Intensive Care Nursery. He was having a few breathing irregularities, but it was more a “better safe than sorry” kind of thing, I do believe (though we didn’t really know that at the time!).
Colton is the new love of my life. Everyone tells me it just gets better.. and it’s almost hard to believe. He’s so wonderful. I’ve turned into a complete sap.. and I’m OK with it! I just can’t get enough of him. I love him soooo much.
Mom (Amy) was in labor for a little less than 6 hours after her water broke at home. She called to tell me.. and my heart was beating about twice as fast as normal all the way to the hospital. She did an incredible job of staying calm and keeping everything in check throughout the delivery. And now… I’m a Daddy. I still can’t believe it at times. I have the most wonderfully sweet boy I could have ever asked for. Here’s the first of what will no doubt be many videos of my new son… Colton Kastner. 🙂
