Jason Cade Rives was born on April 30, 2009. He weighed 4 pounds, 11 ounces. He was 18.5 inches long. Although the nurses and doctors had been preparing us for the NICU, he came out fighting, and didn't have to spend one minute in the NICU. He came home when I came home, which was exciting.
We had been so worried about how Peanut would react. Well, Peanut turned into this gentle creature whenever Jason is around. Now, if a visitor comes to the door, he's back to his hyper self. But, if you are holding Jason, he won't jump, and just wants to sniff him. Bread seems to love him too, but we weren't worried about Bread since he has done well with babies in the past. Butter just ignores him, which we expected.
