Days 2 and 3 of Weston's life!

Shortly after Weston was born, we were taken over to the Mother and Baby side of the hospital where we would spend the next 2 nights.

Weston was quickly assessed after arriving to our new room. They gave him a 9.9 out of 10 on the APGAR! She did however decide to take Weston to the nursery to have his lungs cleared out. His breathing was faster than they liked, so they wanted to keep a closer watch on him. As you can imagine, I wasn't wanting anyone to take him anywhere, but if it was a matter of his well-being, I wanted what was best. However, you better believe Daddy Wes was on their heels following them wherever they went! My sweet sister Rachel crawled in the hospital bed with me and kept me company/calmed me down while Wes and Weston were in the nursery.

They sucked some fluid from his lungs which helped. They also gave him a bath and tried to make him angry so he could cry some more fluid out. Weston did NOT enjoy his first bath, he screamed the whole time. The nurses did their job though, because him crying helped to clear his lungs even more! They finally came back in with a clean smelling little angel where he got to stay the remainder of our stay.

While in the hospital we had many sweet guests! We had...Greg, Nida, Tyler and Kate Priest, Trae and Brad Kendrick, Jan Hiroms, Charla Upchurch, Jeff, Katie, and Abbie Gravens, Kristi Miller, Ross Purdy, David Ridley and of course our sweet family, Bob and Giegie, Rachel and Mom! Dad and Emme drove from Nashville and came on Friday once we were home! Mrs. B, Ross, the Lockes, Mom and Rachel and Big Creek all sent flowers and goodies to our room!

Weston is one loved little blessing! We are so grateful to all our friends and family who spent time praying for our precious son!

Weston LOVES his Auntie RayRay!

All smiles over Weston!

Enjoy family time!
