Well, the day has finally come and our little man is here. Kyle Jeffrey Bergman was born at 11:27pm on Friday, February 8, 2008. He was a welcome sight after 20+ hours of labor, ultimately ending in a c-section. The poor little guy was face up and sort of stuck! Of course, after measuring, it was no wonder. He was 8lbs 5.5 oz and 21 3/4 inches long!! Now I know why my ribs were hurting, his skinny legs were stretching all the way across my body!
Mommy, Daddy and baby are resting comfortably at home, trying to settle into a routine. We know he is working hard at growing, since he has jumped from 1.5 oz of formula at a feeding to 2.5 in less than 1 week of life. Chances are good he will be at 3 oz servings sometime today even! Being in our engineering nature, we have a spreadsheet going to track his feedings, sleep and diaper habits. We are hoping it will help us set a routine as he gets older. If not, it will simply be interesting reading :).
