Welcome to the world Baby Asher!!!

Congratulations Rachel & Scott & Lucy!

Asher Scott was born at 9:15 this morning - screaming at the top of his lungs. He weighs 7 pounds, 3 ounces and is 19.5 inches long. He had apgar scores of 8 and 9.

Due to a c-section birth and being slightly early, he needs a little help with breathing. No birth defects, his heart and major organs look great. The hospital they are at is renovating, so it does not have the equipment to help Asher with his breathing that he needs - called CPAP, where a pressured cannula is placed in his nose. So, he will be making a visit to Lucy's Alma Mater, the children's hospital in the area. The doctor says he should be able to be out the same time Rachel does, hopefully Thursday.
