Baby Watch: Day 1

Please say a big ‘ello to Oliver Danny Hemmings:


We’d been discussing the middle name, as we’d previously decided on Donato.  We couldn’t choose which name we liked better, so we resolved to pick the final name once we saw the baby.  Based on his bright blue eyes, his relatively pale skin, and his salty disposition, we settled on Oliver Danny.

He was officially born April 16, 2015 at 4:32 am with a full head of brown hair, and he weighed 7 lbs 10 oz.  Continuing in the proud Hemmings lineage (begun by me), he immediately peed all over the doctors.  When this occurred, I may or may not have yelled out, “That’s my boy!”

The surgery went well, even though Kristen got fairly nauseous throughout.  She was amazing and never cried once through her entire labor.  She’s still sucking up her pain, even though she’s only had 20 mins sleep and almost no food in over 24 hours.  We’re scheduled to be here until Sunday (tentatively).

Someone please cut my grass.
