Preston Erik Jarvinen was born July 27Th 2009 at 3:42pm after i was induced at 6 am. He was a healthy big guy at 8 lbs 13oz and 21 inches long. We were so happy to finally see the little guy. My mom and little sister Amy came to Utah to see Preston. My brother Seth and his wife Megan came to the hospital to see Preston as well. Preston was so interested in seeing everyone that he actually didn't go to sleep right after birth until nine o clock pm and he slept for almost 9 hours!! Also we learned right after birth that he loves to play with his tongue by rolling it and sticking it out.
It was nice to have my mom around to help with the new born Preston. My mom and Amy were around for about 2 weeks. It was scary to have her leave but Davin and I were just fine without her. As it turns out new born babies are not breakable and pretty much let you know whenever they need something. ;-) thankfully. Preston was a really good baby from the very beginning. He has been a joy to have.
Preston was a little jaundice like most babies so he had to be tested a couple of times after we took him home. Thankfully he didn't need any extra care. When he was about 6 days old we had to take him to the ER for complications with his circumcision. But everything ended up being just fine.....we were just a little paranoid.
