Nathan Stovall Bardsley

We're thrilled to finally announce the arrival of baby Nathan!
May 29th, 2008

7: hours of labor
1: epidural (= happy mom!)
1:03 AM: time of arrival
8 & 6: pounds and ounces
19 1/2: inches
36 cm: head circumference (compared to Sam's 38)
2: units of blood given to mom (who apparently was so happy about that epidural she kept passing out)
35/21/27: mom's hematocrit count upon arrival, and then before and after the transfusion
5: family members happy to be home
Too many to number: people who helped care for Mia and Sam, offered to help, brought food, and called to see how we were. Thank you!

Cute pictures, and how pretty you look right after he was born! He is one cute kid. I'm needing a baby fix soon, so I'll call you.

Mark you finally have a child that looks like you. I am glad everything went well and you have one more to add to the Bardsley family. Congratulations!!!!

Congrats! He is adorable and I love all that dark hair. I also love the name, good choice! I can't wait to hear all about the labor and how you're adjusting.

How sweet of Mia to notice your belly. I'm sure it won't stay "big" for too long with three kids.

Yeah!!! Welcome baby Nathan!

I'm so so sorry I haven't been over to see him. I had a cold, now Noey has a bad runny nose. And I don't want Nathan to get ANYTHING. You know the Biddles, always a germ factory. :)

Wahoo!! Nate is adorable - his hair is so cute and I love how he scrunches up his tiny face. I LOVE the name Nathan, btw.

Donna - you look amazing!
