He's Here!!!

Welcome to the world little Preston William Thomas. We're glad you made it here safe and sound and that mommy is recovering well.

You were having too much fun inside mommy twisting and getting into all sorts of awkward positions. After 22 hours we decided to take you out the easy way and it was smooth sailing from there.

You weighed in at 8lb. 4oz and were 19-1/2 inches long. You got Dad's big blue eyes (for now) and Mom's gorgeous strawberry blond hair. You got Mom's chin and Dad's easy going attitude (for now).

Mom is recovering well. Because of the C-section Dad got to be the mom for the first few hours. You were hungry from the get go, but waited patiently for Mom to come around. You latched right on and look like a pro nurser already.

If you can just take a nice long nap so Mom and Dad can get some shut eye, then we'll all be a happy family.


Pictures coming soon.

Dear Will and Jenni,

You did fine. We hope that Jenni gets feeling fine soon and that Preston is adjusting OK to life.

Dad Thomas

Congratulations!! We too had to have a C-Section with our Preston. Hard to take at first, but all that matters is that he is with you safe and sound! Glad you are both doing well. By the way: GREAT name! :)
