Happy Birthday, Sam

Samuel Otis Greene was born three-weeks early today at 3:44 p.m. weighing in at 6 lbs 13 oz and measuring 18-inches long.

Elisa was incredible throughout the nearly 23 hours between when her water broke and when Sam entered our lives. He required only five minutes or so of actual pushing, which is almost 2-1/2 hours less time than it took Max.

Speaking of Max, he and his grandparents got to meet Sam shortly after he arrived. Unfortunately, we will be unable to have any additional visitors right away.

Sam's early arrival led to some breathing issues that led him to the NICU for at least the next 48 hours and most likely longer. It's nothing serious and a common occurrence for babies born at 37 weeks. So we await x-rays, lab cultures and breathing progress so we can have Sam Otis home in the next week or so.

Thank you all for your emails, texts and Facebook messages. We value each one and can't wait to introduce you to our beautiful new son.
