So Without further ado, here is Stephen Charles:
The last 5 photos were taken right after he was born in the OR and the first set of photos were taken last night when we got the chance to help give him a bath. It was so awesome to get to bathe him and see him without his CPAP mask, change his diaper, and just get to see and feel his little body. Just to give you a little info, the "mask" you see on his head is his CPAP machine. It's oxygenating his blood and helping his lungs to develop by reducing stress on the lungs. And the tube in his mouth is sucking out any extra air and fluids from his tummy as a result of the CPAP. And yes, that is a pacifier you see! The big "block" on his left had is his IV and the gold heart on his chest monitors his temperature. The rest of his monitoring devices and cords for things like blood pressure go through his belly button. And the most exciting thing about our bath time last night was seeing him open his right eye. That was the first time he opened his eyes and it was such a special moment! His eyes are a beautiful dark blue/gray (like most babies). And we love our little monkey to pieces!!!!
