Henry Folsom Frazer

So, today at about 4:00 p.m., Henry Folsom Frazer entered our world! 

The little fellow decided to arrive a bit early. . .5 weeks early to be precise!  And that caused a bit of a stir for everyone involved, especially Mom, Dad and Brother, Owen. 

He weighed in at 5 pounds 9.5 ounces and measured a rather long 19 inches.  Huge hands and feet like his big brother.  Lots of dark brown hair and, to quote a nurse "a rather calm disposition." 

He will remain in the little folks ICU for a few days to make certain his lung capacity and eating habits are well in order. 

We are so grateful that he is here.  I can't wait to be able to hold him.

Joanna, the mom here, is doing great!  And, Jordan is doing well as the very relieved father. 

Thankfully, our children have good health insurance, something everyone in the nation deserves. 

Happy Birthday, little Henry!  I'll enjoy my granddad "bonding" ritual real soon.  We're so glad to have you on the journey!

What an amazing blessing -- and thank God it all worked out well. Our little Harper came four or five weeks early, and is healthy as can be.

Much love and many blessings!

Fantastic! As I mentioned, Larry, our youngest also came 5 weeks early and spent a week in NICU. She's now 12 and couldn't be better. It does make one grateful for modern medicine!
