Well, he finally made his debut.
Cooper Allen Briels came Monday, July 6th, at 7:46 am via c-section.
Cooper weighed in at 7 pounds, 6 ounces, and measured 19 inches long. He was a bit smaller than we were use to (Nolan was 8 pounds, 9 ounces), but we did take him about 10 days early. He’s apparently having no problems putting on the weight though – he’s already well past his birth weight, managing to pack on half a pound in two days.
Everything went so well, the doc even let us check out of the hospital early. Nolan is in love with his little brother. In fact, the only problem we’re having is getting him to quit hugging and touching Cooper. Video coming later of the first time Nolan was Cooper.
Cooper seems to have followed in his brother’s footsteps and is loving his sleep. He’s a gem, no fussing and lots of eating and sleeping. I will thank my lucky stars if this continues, especially as we enter the terrible two’s with Nolan. I promise to get more posts up soon.
