We're grandparents again! This time it's a little boy! Amanda and Nolan welcomed Hugo Edward Hauta into the world on August 7th, at 10:05 p.m. He was 10 weeks early, and quite a surprise. After a normal pregnancy, Amanda went into labor last Friday night. They were able to give her medication to help the baby, but were unable to slow down the labor. By Monday the baby was ready to come!
The doctors were very pleased with him, considering he was only 30 weeks along. He weighed 3 pounds, 7.5 ounces, and breathed right away on his own. They wired him up and put him in a special crib to make sure he got enough air and nutrients.
Yesterday he graduated to an incubator-like crib to fatten him up! Hopefully, he'll be able to come home in a few months.
Happily, Amanda is also doing well!
