This is Dad. Peanut isn't a peanut anymore, at least as of 1:15 pm cdt today. At that point in time Peanut became Zachary. He checked into the world via c-section, weighing 9 pounds exactly and 21 inches in length. Compared to most of the babies we saw, he seemed fully developed and possibably looking for the car keys. Both he and mom are doing fine. Zach did develop a problem related to rapid breathing, and will be kept in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) to completely make sure everything is OK. The doctor is not worried, just being careful. The down side is Mom hasn't had a chance to hold him yet. That will change in the morning. She can't wait. Hopefully we will be there to enjoy the moment.
