36 weeks and 6 days. Missed not having to rotate through NICU by 5 hours (mandatory if born before 37 weeks in CO)

Really?  I would have thought such requirements would be based on weight at birth or some other physical standard.

Congratulations.

Colorado law or reg or rule or something. The reason is late pre-term are inconsistent in their ability to regulate things like temp, oxygen, etc., especially here at altitude.

The boys like her so far. Dominic is very into her and Eamon is curious and likes looking at her.

She is recovering fairly well.

Genevieve is latching, but has a tongue tie we need to get fixed, as she is not getting as much milk as she could, so my wife has to finish her with a bottle.

The part of "The boys like her so far"  ;D sounds adorable.
It seems that Dominic is more into her since he has experience with a new baby in the family, while Eamon is probably wondering "what is going on?"
I have always wondered what babies think when more babies arrive.  I hope that Mommy is able to get some rest. And that Genevieve is thriving.  :pray3: God Bless.

I'll be working Saturday. Depending on the day, that isn't an inaccurate description of that road, though.

Congrats.

Pretty Piti.

Congrats man.

Dear Gardener,

Feel free to post a video of when you introduced baby Genevieve to her big brothers, like you did with Eamon & Dominic  ;)
I am sure the reaction was priceless. Or a picture of her Baptism. God bless.

 :pray2: :pray3:

Video of their meeting her wasn't great. Too much other stuff going on compared to the last one. I have pics of the Baptism, but I need to redact faces since I have not sought those persons' permission for placing such pictures online with their face identifiable.
