Meet my new nephew!!

Colton Walter Witschey was born at 1:58 this morning to Nick’s brother, AJ, and his lovely wife, Amber. He weighs 5 lbs, 11 oz and is 18 inches long. Not bad considering he arrived a few weeks ahead of schedule!!

It was a tense night around here, as Nick and I sat on our smartphones all night, waiting for news from Connecticut! We didn’t sleep much… although I’m betting we got a little more sleep than Amber and AJ! 😉

Halfway through Amber’s pregnancy, they found out that Colton has Down Syndrome and heart defects that may require surgeries in the days to come. Daddy AJ reported on Facebook today that Colton will be in the NICU for a few more days, with the possibility of surgery after that… but he “couldn’t be better at the moment!” Music to our ears!

Congrats to Amber and AJ… and welcome to the crazy Witschey family, dear Colton! We love you!
