The Big Guy Has Come!

Introducing the newest member of the Fuller family!

Miles Evan Fuller
Born: 0001 Hours, February 1, 2009
Height: 19.5"
Weight: 7 lbs. 5 oz.

Short story of his much anticipated arrival (Kirsten can elaborate in the coming days):

Saturday January 31, 2009
  • We arrived at the hospital at 7:00 a.m.
  • Kirsten's water broke at 12:30 p.m.
  • Heavy contractions began around 3:00 p.m.
  • Kirsten started pushing at around 7:30 p.m.
  • Umbilical was found to be wrapped around Miles chest/throat around 9:50 p.m.
  • More pushing...
  • Forceps were pulled out and used at 11:50 p.m.
Sunday February 1, 2009
  • A perfectly healthy Miles was born at 12:01 a.m.
  • Miles was taken to the NICU at 8:00 a.m. because of trouble breathing, thought to be caused by amnionic fluid in the lungs.
  • Miles is now (4:25 p.m.) breathing and eating like a champ and is expected to leave the NICU tomorrow morning.
<----- UPDATE ----->
Monday, February 2, 2009
  • Miles left the NICU early this morning and will be joining us in our room shortly!
A big thanks to all of the supportive family and friends and the amazing staff at St. Marks Hospital.  I'm sure Kirsten will post up a more detailed account real soon.

He looks cute. I can't wait to see him and hold him. Please say you didn't push that whole time. I'm shocked you are still alive. Holy cow!

Congratulations. He is BEAUTIFUL. I hope everything went alright, it sounds like it was not a quick one. But isn't he so worth it. Congrats again, I am so excited for you. You need to go get some newborn picts taken between 1 week and 2 weeks. I've always wanted to do that with my kids.... maybe someday.

To Kirsten, Tim, Gus and Tug,
Miles has a very pretty face (sorry, Tim) with no evidence of the traumatic ride known as birthing. Kudos to all four of you! The 5 Arkys will be thinking of you, especially our boys (dogs Taz and Jackson) who endured a new baby Sam coming into their lives.
