Happy Birthday Milo Z!


Milo Zelotes Ikenberry Peterson stepped into this world at around 8:30 am this fine Fall Friday morning at a whopping 7#, 10 oz. His parents, grandparents, aunties, and cousins were on hand to welcome him and make sure he felt loved and noticed on this November 6, 2009.

Almost a completely healthy boy, Milo did have some difficulty breathing and is spending some time in the NICU for monitoring and assessment of his pulmonary needs. The docs attribute his difficulty to premature lungs and retained fluid which can occur in 37 weeker Ceasarean births (although very rarely (seems like we have a knack for respiratory issues in our brood)). Now, its pretty much a waiting game to see how he progresses, but today he has almost surpassed the need for any oxygenation assistance. So, we are not out of the woods yet, and we are still a little bit in the weeds and have to search around and help Milo find his way home.

Y'all can go to http://www.flickr.com/photos/60541775@N00/ to see some pics from today. We will be trying very hard to post updates and photos in the next few days.

Please spread the word and help welcome Milo Z. into our loving circle of friends and family. And keep us in your thoughts and prayers while we visit the NICU for a few more days.
