Jacob Ruffin Salter, aka "Finn", was born at 0530 on 10/11/10, weighing in at a whopping 10lbs 9oz and 20.5" long. The two most frequent comments from hospital staff were "what a beautiful baby boy" and "wow, you guys gave birth to a toddler." I labeled the scale on the blueprint in cms, but clearly Janis built in inches!
Much like his big sister Jane (who was 9 lbs 9 oz at birth), he came out of the womb with eyes wide open, lifted his head up all on his own, knew immediately who his daddy was, and screamed bloody murder at anybody BUT daddy who touched him for the first hour and a half or so.
This incubator was in our Labor&Delivery room. We did not place Finn in it.
