Harris Robert Cianciulli was born on 8/7/09 at 11:06 AM. 7lbs, 9oz, 20 inches long. Born at 36 wks, 5 days, he was 4 days earlier than Connor was but is still a whole pound heavier!

We all know that Connor is a kisser and a hugger and Harris got the full Connor treatment on day one! Connor then left for a special big boy trip to Memom and Dada's house. Before he left the hospital he said, 'Can I take the new baby with me?' So cute! Connor has told everyone that he will be calling Harris 'Baby Bob.' We love it!

Harris is less than an hour old in this picture. Chubby cheeks - opposite of skinny minnie Connor at this age! Before Harris was 10 hours old, he was in the NICU under lights for very early and very high jaundice. He is still in the NICU now at 48 hours under the lights but making fabulous progress. He gets a Mama-feeding every 3 hours and that's the only time he's allowed out of the lights for now. I will be staying an extra day in the hospital to be with him and depending on his progress, Harris will stay an extra day or two.

Here are Mama's boys! Mike is staying at the hospital and despite getting very little sleep on a very uncomfortable bed, is still an AMAZING father and husband! He gets to take Harris' temperature and change his diaper every 3 hours at feeding time and he does the hand-off from lights to me for nursing. Not to mention helping me with everything - even putting on my socks!

Harris is the biggest baby in the NICU right now and we are so Blessed that he is only in there for high billirubin. There are a few very tiny babies who are unable to feed, in incubators...
We thank God for our beautiful Harris and for his decreasing billirubin levels.
