Introducing Ryder Richard

Check out who made his grand appearance on May 12th...Ryder Richard Lindsay! Ryder arrived at 1:56pm and weighed 7lbs 11oz and was 20 inches long. He has tons of dark, thick, and at times curly hair!

Daddy is proud to have son #3 safely here...


Getting some cuddle time from mommy during recovery. Shortly after this Ryder was taken to NICU for some breathing problems and "wet lungs". He was having a rather difficult time breathing and was working very hard to do so. A newborn's respirations should be between 40-60 and Ryder's were running between 120-130. The NICU nurses put him under an oxygen hoodie (he looked like an astronaut LOL), started an IV on him (to keep his blood sugars in check), and took some additional precautionary measures.

The same doctor who took care of Parker during his stay in NICU looked after Ryder too. In addition many of the nurses recognized us as well (and vice versa). He received great care from the entire staff.
I am in LOVE with all of his dark hair!

Showing some attitude already by giving us the "bird" LOL...


Last night in the hospital...ready to go home and cause chaos with big brothers...

He is just precious, Kelly! I can't quite tell, but he looks a lot different than Parker and Garrett. I also can't get over how big he is.
