Welcome Nathan Christopher Russo

20 December 2008
On behalf of the very proud parents, Marc and Valynn Russo and the very happy brother Paul Anthony, I would like to announce the birth of Nathan Christopher Russo.

Nathan was born early Friday morning, December 19, 2008 at 2:40am.
He weighed in at 6 pounds 12 oz. and 20 inches long.

There was a concern as Valynn was having contractions, the baby's heart rate decelerated and an emergency C-sections was ordered immediately. The baby's head was pressing on the umbilical cord but in just a few short minutes the baby was delivered and sent to the intensive care unit for observation.

I saw Nathan about 9:30am and was able to be there when the doctor examined him. He is doing very well just a little sleepy. Valynn has been very uncomfortable and the recovery will take time. She is very thankful that her precious baby is healthy!

To me, Nathan looks a lot like Paul did (absolutely beautiful) but has a bit more hair and it is a little darker. We are anxious to see what color his eyes will be.

Paul Anthony was asked who he wanted to see first at the hospital and he said "Nathan." How precious to see the look on Paul's face when he saw his brother for the first time.

I have the honor of having Paul Anthony stay with me until Valynn comes home in a few more days.

We are all so thankful for this miracle from God!

The very blessed Nana
