It's a Boy!!!
IT'S A BOY!!!
8 pounder arrives healthy; Mom doing great
Story Update: At last a Name!
MOUNT AUBURN HOSPITAL- Yet To Be Named has finally got himself a proper name: Jackson Christopher Masters. Jackson is doing great and spends most of his days sleeping quietly and constantly being told how beautiful, handsome and adorable he is by family and friends that have visited in the hospital or seen his pictures here. Most follow up the beautiful, handsome and adorable compliments with saying how much he takes after his Uncle Chris.
There was some concern that he was not eating much and was refusing the bottle. After much discussion and thought as to what the problem was and what the solution is, Jackson was given a plate of nacho's and chicken fingers with honey mustard sauce and he ate the plates clean. Further proof that he is his father's son.
Now that he is eating like a horse sucking bottles down with ease he now adds that to his daily routine of eating, sleeping and being held. All wish they could switch places with him and spend their days the same way.
MOUNT AUBURN HOSPITAL- Peter and Amy Masters welcomed a bouncing baby boy into the world at 11:06 PM on Wednesday, October 11 at the Mount Auburn Hospital in Cambridge, MA.
The little scrapper, Yet To Be Named, has ten fingers, ten toes and everything else is in the right place and has been given a clean bill of health! Mom is also doing great and there were no complications during the delivery.
It was not until close to midnight that the proud Dad came to te
ll the group of family and friends that Mom and baby boy are all doing great. You may have heard screams of joy around that same time wherever you were in the Commonwealth. If you were wondering what that sound was it was the combination of both grandmothers as they were told it was a healthy baby boy and that Mom was doing fine.
The baby's sex was a surprise to the end although those that know Dad knew it must be a boy when the baby was late in arriving (due date was 5 days ago).
There was an appropriate amount of gushing by family and friends over the little guy and as far as I can tell Yet To Be Named will solve all the worlds problems before his 5th birthday so there is no need to worry about world hunger, nuclear weapons or the cost of oil. He has it covered.
Yet to be Named came in at 8 pounds 2 ounces with a healthy head of strawberry blondish hair and not making a peep. His height had yet to be measured but he looks like he is a good length (about the length of a medium sized duffle bag).
It was tough to tell if he is going to be a right or left shot but when handed a mini hockey stick after the cord was cut he grabbed the top of the stick with his right hand so we think a lefty. We'll need to see how his shot and “hands” are before we can pencil him at forward or as a defensemen.
He is being for fitted for skates early next week. Learn to skate lessons to follow shortly thereafter.
Congrats to Peter and Amy!
