Robert is very happy to finally be able to hold his son and to see his face. It has been a long wait! Pretty much Robert's pose for the second day of Alestair's life..he must have been stressed out or something. He slept through nurses and doctors coming in every hour.
Alestair has some blood sugar issues so we had to give some formula to get the numbers up. They told us that we would have to do this at every feeding until the numbers were correct or Alestair would not be able to come home with us. As this gave Robert and I a little bit of a heartattack Robert and a friend of ours blessed Alestair and this was the only time we had to give him a bottle (glad I had Robert feed him that time). The doctors were amazed and said they had never had a baby go from a 31 blood sugar to 153. Robert went to church on July 6th (Sunday after we came home). This is one of my favorite pictures of them. Alestair really loves his dad. When I can't calm him down Robert just has to say one word and Alestair will stop and wait for more.
