Pacifier Grip

This afternoon, we found out that Will has a really strong pacifier grip. He’s currently getting all of his nutrition from an IV, but it apparently, he really wants to feed from his mount! Debby is still on some pain meds from yesterday’s c-section, but I got a chance to hold Will for the first time:

He’s all cleaned up!

After a night of pain medicatino for Debby and c-section recovery, we woke up on the 30th and were ready to make our second trip to the NICU to visit with Will. This meeting was wonderful. Will was all cleaned up and looked cuter than we could imagine. Words don’t do him justice, so here are some pictures from Sept 30 around 11 AM:

William Vinay Chawla is Born!

Willam Vinay Chawla was born on September 29, 2007 at 6:38 PM. He was born at Good Samaritan Hospital in San Jose California. He is extremely cute! My wife, Debby, and I couldn’t have imaged a better son. We love him more than we thought possible!

He arrived via c-section at 36 weeks and 3 days. He weighed 4 lbs and 8 ounces, but is very strong and healthy. He is being monitored in the NICU by a wonderful nursing staff and neonatologist team. We are very grateful for all of the amazing care given by Good Samaritan Hospital’s staff and our amazing obstetrician, Dr. Margaret Chu. And without further ado, here’s Baby Will 2.5 hrs after his birth:
