James Kolton Houser, was born at 7:38 AM Thursday December 31st 2009. Kolt weighed 4 lbs 9 oz and was 16.5 in long. That may seem little but he was 3.5 weeks early and his mother is a 5 foot 95 lb little woman. She’s tiny, he’s tiny.
He had to stay in his incubator until Saturday afternoon because being so little, he was having trouble keeping his temperature up. His father’s nickname at work is “Chilli” because he’s always cold. Clint’s cold, Kolt’s cold.
He got to come home this afternoon so Neil and I finally made it back to Eddyville to get our life back to normal. It’s funny because I was complaining about the Holidays messing with everyone’s routine and schedules and I was just ready for everything to go back to “normal”. And the next thing I know I have a nephew with whom I’m completely infatuated. For several days even after the Holidays had past my life still wasn’t back to normal and it really never will be again.
But guess what…
I’m OK with that.
