He arrived yesterday, Jan 13th at 9:57 am. Tripp Taylor Zitzlsperger. Weighing in at 6lbs 13 oz and 20 inches long. Below are a few pics showing his life's journey so far!
We headed to the OR right at 9:30. It is so weird walking down the hallway to go pick up your baby.
This is just after he was born...still in the OR. He transitioned really really well. No problems at all. We were surprised at his weight. He was much smaller than both Dane (7 lbs 8 oz) and Erik (7 lbs 5 oz). Our doctor said it may just be him, or it may have been the 2-vessel cord...not getting as many nutrients from the placenta. We'll never know, but he is our littlest peanut for sure!
A quick family shot with mama!
While Shell was finishing up in the OR, I headed to the nursery with Tripp to get a more complete check-up.
Shell got to hang out with him in the post-op recovery room. Their bond was instant!
Cute feet...love the footprints!
I like to call this the Pirate shot! "Arrrrr....me hearty!"
