My Last But Definitely Not Least Fishing Partner Has Arrived

Fishing Time (birth): 12:50 p.m.
Weather: Sunny, hot, high 90’s
Moon: 14% Moon
Location: IMC Hospital (Murray)
Bait (doctor): Dr. Calla Holmgren
Who Was There: Mom, Dad, Brother Devin, Sister Addison, Grandparents, Uncle Ronnie, Cousin DakotaMy last, but definitely not least fishing partner was born today at 12:50 p.m. His name is Dayton John Duncan and he weighed more than his older brother and sister by a few ounces at a whopping 3 lb 5 oz. He was also the longest of the bunch at 17 ½ inches long and already has more hair than his 1 ½ year old sister Addi. He was born at 34 weeks gestation, making him exactly 6 weeks early in arrival. He is doing great in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit and should be home in a couple weeks. He likes the the help of oxygen like his brother Devin did and will probably have to come home with it for a little while. Once he gains enough weight to hold his own body temperature and starts feeding from the bottle he can come home to his family. He has some tough competition at home that will take some getting use to, but he will forever be the baby of the family. Mom had her tubes tied so the fishing crew is complete at 3! Now it’s time to move on and raise our little family together, teaching them how to love the outdoors, and of course… fishing!
